A year of Zingerman's sandwiches: No. 81

Yum...corned beef. Now, I am a huge corned beef fan. I never cared for it much when I was younger but now I can't get enough. That being said, I have to honestly admit this was not my favorite sandwich. It had a simplicity to it that I can appreciate -- bread, mustard and meat.

The bread was, as usual, amazing. The beef was great, with a nice flavor. But I don't think this is my new favorite sandwich.

But if you're looking for the simplicity of a great deli corned beef, I would recommend this sandwich. I paired it with some nice Zapp's potato chips and a Boylan soda from their fairly-new fountain.

But what I really love about having a sandwich at Zingerman's is that I can work from downtown A2 and meet a lot of interesting people. The Zingerman's Next Door area is such an interesting place to people watch.

So if you see a girl with a laptop and a Boylan's cola staring at you, don't be afraid. It's just me, gathering information for my blog or working on a news story.

So Check out the No. 81 and stay tuned for more Zingerman's deliciousness.

A year of Zingerman's Sandwiches

I love Zingerman's. I didn't discover them until I had lived here for about 2 years, and ever since then, I have become addicted.

The issue is, I always order the same thing when I go there. The Benno's Birdie, pictured here. Grilled sourdough, chicken, pesto, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella.

It's amazing. If you haven't tried it, you need to. But the problem is, if I'm always ordering the same sandwich, how can I say that I truly LOVE Zingerman's Deli?

So my decision is this: I am going to try a different sandwich from Zingerman's every week and let you know what I think. I will post a photo and name of the sandwich along with my thoughts.

So check back to see if I try one of your favorites, or if you're looking for a new favorite. And maybe I'll see you at Zingerman's!
