Hitting the Road: Towne Deli in Staten Island, New York… Featuring The Mess
When there is an opportunity to go 45 minutes out of my way for a killer sandwich, I might not even think twice about it. I was in beautiful, flooded New Jersey this past weekend and on the way back down south to Maryland, decided to head north first. The lunch destination was Towne Deli in Staten Island, New York. Towne Deli is home to a sandwich called “The Mess”. The Mess consists of salami, cappicola, mortadella, turkey, roast beef, peppered ham, provolone, lettuce, tomato, oil, vinegar & spices. This massive sandwich seemed to be over a foot long and completely stuffed with the Boar’s Head Brand. The bread was fantastic too. Yeah it’s called The Mess but the bread contained this beast easily. Quality stuff.
The price tag was a mere $8.25 and for a sandwich that had this much weight to it, a major bargain. You could take this sandwich apart and make about 4 decent sized sandwiches. Paying under 10 bucks for The Mess was a steal. Pictures and words don’t do the sandwich justice but feast your eyes and check out Towne Deli if you’re ever in the area.
Oh I almost forgot… The Mess humbled me. It took lunch and dinner to finish. I have failed you all.
