Wednesday Double Header

Yesterday I had quite a busy day with two sandwiches. For lunch, I decided to try Steve's Bigger Sub's which was interesting because it seems like a chain in there with all kinds of logos and cardboard cutouts but I guess its the only restaurant. Its located in sherman oaks by the ventura 405 exit. I had a 12" italian sub and it was pretty delicious. The bread was good and "airy." It kind of reminded me of Blimpies but with a little more weight to it.

For dinner, I tried a los angeles landmark. Phillippes has been open since 1908 and its no wonder! Its located in the middle of China town and boasts the home of the french dip sandwich! It was absolutely incredible! coffee is like 9 cents and lemonade for 75 cents! The place has an old timey feel with everybody dressed like theyre from the 40s or 50s. Theres a cabstand right next door so the adds to the feel of the place. i got a beef sandwich with blue cheese. So bomb...

One of the most incredible things about the place is that they make their own spicy mustard. I underestimated it at first, this stuff is like wasabi! You can buy it their too, I had to pick some up.

Heres their wikapedia:'s

I highly recommend it to any sandwich fan.


  1. Their chocolate pie is awesome, too!!! With hint of hazel nut, it's like you're eating Nutella sandwich only fluffier and creamier. Hmmm.... 9cents coffee.... :)
