USA vs. Germany

The Bobbie: Defeated G Sandwich's spring lamb sandwich (Greece) 77:23. What's more American than Thanksgiving? A Thanksgiving sandwich approved by Vice President Biden. The signature item at Capriotti's, the Veep's favorite lunch spot, combines turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo on a roll.

Döner: Defeated Fast Gourmet's chivito (Uruguay) 68:32. The lingering taste of your study abroad semester is the döner kebab, a Turkish innovation that is, according to Doner Bistro, "the No. 1 hand food in Germany." The spiced slices of beef or chicken are served in a flatbread pocket with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and tzatziki.
