Welcome to day two of the Great Sandwich Smackdown quarterfinals! Yesterday’s exciting race between DGS Delicatessen and Shawafel was a photo finish, with the H Street shawarma spot pulling ahead with just 50.46 percent of the votes. Thus we bid adieu to Dupont’s corned-beef kings.
Today’s competition promises to be just as exciting, if not more. In one corner, we have G’s Jersey-fied Italian sandwiches. In the other, Taylor Gourmet’s Philly versions of the same. This isn’t just a matter of who makes the better buns—this is about hometown pride. So it’s up to you to choose: G’s suckling pig or Taylor’s roast pork? Chicken Parm or chicken cutlets? Heroes or hoagies? Only one of these passionate teams can continue to the semifinals, and it’s up to you to decide.
