South Side Style Sandwiches in Englewood
Chicago is arguably ground zero for regional sandwiches in the States. We have almost two handfuls worth of original offerings we call our own. I'm talking about sandwiches like the Italian Beef and Jibarito that were born in Chicago and continue to thrive almost exclusively here. Today's post focuses in on one of the lesser hyped sandwiches that should really be more well known. It's the Sweet Steak sandwich who's history cannot be exactly traced to one place but many call the now closed Taurus Flavors (planning to reopen hopefully) the spot where it took off. Well Taurus Flavors was basically ransacked by a car that plowed through it, the building itself wasn't in good shape as is, so it's closed for the foreseeable future. That said there's plenty of other spots in town making Sweet Steak sandwiches and what's maybe my favorite comes from Hailey's Hoagies in Englewood.
