Cheap Eats: Earl of Sandwich

On days that are bright and sunny (like today, although I am sitting at home watching The Matrix), I like to meet The Russian near his job downtown and have lunch in the commons.

Boston Common
Who wouldn’t want to spend more time around here? Especially if the time is spent eating.
Since we’re both adventurous folk , we like to try new places to eat.  Yesterday was Earl of Sandwich, which has a cute spot right in the center of The Boston Common. Since they claim to have “The world’s best hot sandwich,”  I was interested.  You know what? It wasn’t bad at all. It was quite delicious and a perfect lunch bite.

First off, the sandwich looks like a brick of gold.  Keeping it classy, I see.

“I’m rich with flavor”– the sandwich

The Russian got the club sandwich, which was indeed hot and delicious.


I got the Cobb salad, as I wasn’t feeling like a heavy lunch.  It was very tasty, and the cranberries were a smart touch.  Also, the ranch dressing was awesome (I kinda judge places on their quality of ranch dressing).  So that was a good decision.


The whole meal only set us back $19, and we both got drinks and a bag of chips (so much for my light meal). Good looks.
