The results are in from last week’s completely unscientific National Sandwich Day poll. The question we asked was, “Who makes the best sandwiches in the D.C. area?”
Well, it was a total landslide: After 2,162 votes, the runaway winner was SUNdeVICH...at 35 percent! Taylor Gourmet was the runner-up with 18 percent, while the Italian Store finished third with 11 percent.
It’s worth noting that there was no one-person, one-vote rule in play here. But despite having a weird name and being notoriously hard to find (it’s located in a converted garage in an alley near the Convention Center), SUNdeVICH is deserving of the honor, making globally-inspired sandwiches that are nonpareil in this town; where else will you find beef tongue, mustard and pickled vegetables on a baguette around here?
Fast Gourmet finished with just 3 percent of the vote, a shockingly-low total for a place that, despite being situated in a gas station, has won unrestrained, euphoric raves from bloggers (here, here, here and here) and food critics alike.
Here's the full list of results:
A.M. Wine Shoppe: 3%
Fast Gourmet: 3%
G Street Food: 1%
The Italian Store: 11%
Taylor Gourmet: 18%
Total votes: 2,162
