paseo

best . sandwich . ever

honestly, to describe paseo is a waste of time and mouth.  it is impossible to make out coherent sentences when eating or even thinking about their sandwiches.  so here are some bullet points:

  • cuban sandwich
  • MESSY as hell
  • get the #2, 4 or 8. 
  • cash only
  • every food and travel show has featured this place (for a reason!)
  • spend the extra dollar and get the corn
  • this place is small and a total hole in the wall
  • all good things are worth the wait, so be prepared…

basically, paseo is the chuck norris of sandwiches.  it will round house kick all the other sandwiches’ asses.  yes, i’m talking to you, ike’s

Oh my gosh. Can’t…. stop….. drooling……

I like that you can also get corn with it to balance out the salty with some sweet! And oh my goodness, I just scrolled back up and saw that it’s in Seattle. That’s only a few hours away from me! Time to convince the boyfriend to take a road trip!! 😉

I’m hosting a giveaway for some pretty floral summer scarves and would love it if you swung by and entered!

Have a great weekend Yvonne!

That sandwich looks glorious. I have a love/hate relationship with messy sandwiches. I love eating them (they’re so satisfying) but hate the way I look while I’m eating them (like a frenzied beast). Ohh well.. The finished corn at the end made me laugh. Beautiful pictures, by the way.
