The Future Of Sandwiches

Saturday 12 May, 3pm (South Street, Philadelphia PA):
A quick note about the food in this country – it’s bloody great. If you’re ever on the East Coast, make a point of visiting a food outlet called Wawa. Wawa represents the Future Of Sandwiches. You place your order via touch-screen technology and there’s pretty much nothing you can’t have. A thousand varieties of sauce. Endless obscure meats and toppings. One of the optional extras – I kid you not – is “lots of extra oil”. Extra oil?! This place laughs in the face of obesity.

Whilst I’m on the subject, if you ever find yourself in Philadelphia, eat Philly Cheese-Steaks. As many as you can. They’re splendid. I’ve had two already today and it’s only 3 o’clock in the afternoon. They come with “Cheese Whizz” which, disturbingly, bears almost no resemblance to actual cheese. It comes in an unearthly shade of yellow-orange and has the texture of extremely viscous baby sick. Definitely worth checking out.
