No. 79: Any Sandwich Made at the Crosby

Welcome to the Weekly's list of our 100 Favorite Dishes for 2011! Tune in every day until we get to número uno! Now, on to the latest entry. . . .

We here at SaFII make no bones about our love for the Crosby, about our respect for chef Aron Habiger. The man has talent, no matter the format. But the one genre he always nails, always impresses with is the humble sandwich.
I've had almost all of them. The above Crosby Cristo? Like biting into a fried pillow caked with powdered sugar? The ever-present Starving Artist sandwich, complete with a cup of tomato sauce? One of the best $5 you can spend for food in the county. I've had Aron's take on cochinita pibil (which made it onto the list last year), his pork belly bánh mì, even one concoction with headcheese, and he nails them all--some better than others, sure, but always with a care that shows he knows a sandwich isn't just throwing ingredients between two slices of bread, but rather a craft, a discipline.
