This is the sandwich I’ve been looking for: cheap and satisfying with few frills. Taste Tickler is a small sandwich and bento shop in Northeast Portland. I ordered the 7” namesake “Famous Tickler” sub. I probably could replicate it at home, but what’s the point when this little joint does it so well?
Things That I Liked About This Particular Sandwich
Freshly baked chewy bread.
Delicious triumvirate of ham, salami, and pepperoni.
Huge!
Not fancy.
Things That I Didn’t Like About This Particular Sandwich
Could have used some mustard, but that’s only because I am unabashedly pro-mustard when it comes to condiments.
I ate it super fast and got a stomachache. It was worth it though. 
7” Famous Ticker, $4.75 at Taste Tickler. 10/10.

My mother just whipped up this BLT with the type of dexterity and finesse that can only be obtained by making your child’s lunch every single day of their public school career, K-12. She even put sprouts on it because she knows I need more protein. Thanks Mom!
Things That I Liked About This Particular Sandwich
Olives on toothpicks make me feel real fancy
My mom used cherub tomatoes, baby romaine, and petite kosher dills because she also knows that I like anything miniature 
Made with love
Things That I Didn’t Like About This Particular Sandwich
Nothing! It was perfect, just like my mother.
BLT, free at my mom’s house in Texas. She’ll probably make you one if you come over. It might even have avocado on it if you’re lucky. 11/10.

I would eat at the Grilled Cheese Grill every single day if I wasn’t terrified of gaining 8 million pounds and/or dying of cheese toxicity. 
This wonderful food cart is mere yards from my house. The first time I ate there the Footloose soundtrack was blasting from inside the dining area, which is a refurbished double-decker bus. The tables are decoupaged with Lifetouch class photos. After fashioning a time machine out of the aforementioned elements, one carton of chocolate milk, and some magical Lisa Frank unicorn stickers, I was instantly transported into Dove Elementary School’s cafeteria circa 1995. And then I ate my grilled cheese and tomato soup and sat by myself and read Little House on the Prairie while my moronic peers traded pogs.
Anyway, the sandwich I ordered this time around was The Northsider. Pesto, salami, provolone and tomato on sourdough. 
Things That I Liked About This Particular Sandwich
Sometimes pesto can be overwhelming, but this sandwich had the perfect amount.
Cheese was wonderfully melty, bread was wonderfully toasty.
Complimentary pickle.
Nostalgia.
Things That I Didn’t Like About This Particular Sandwich
The salami made it a little greasy, but at least it was the good, cured meat kind of greasy.
That’s really it. This sandwich was awesome. 
The GCG was also offering a special when I was there: The Seuss, with grilled ham, a fried egg, green onions, and cheddar. Just another example of their grilled cheese ingenuity.
The Northsider, $6.25 at The Grilled Cheese Grill. 9/10.

Bunk Sandwiches was the first restaurant that was recommended to me when I moved to Portland, so I decided to go there for my inaugural sandwich blog post. 
I ordered the meatball parmigiano hero because meatball sandwiches are my favorite thing ever and I am seemingly unable to restrain myself from ordering them when they present themselves on a menu. 
Things That I Liked About This Particular Sandwich
It was quite large - I was able to split it with Corey even though I wanted to eat all the delicious meatballs and leave him with nothing but marinara sodden hoagie remnants, but he paid for it so whatev.
The hoagie itself was not severed in half, but rather fashioned into a boatlike vessel engineered to insure the meatballs’ safe passage toward my welcoming gullet. This eliminates the possibility for a rogue meatball to pop out the end of the bread and escape as meatballs are wont to do*.
Things That I Didn’t Like About This Particular Sandwich
Meatball-to-sauce ratio was uneven. Like seriously, the meatballs should’ve been the stars of the show here, instead they were just overshadowed by too much marinara. 
I broke my fork in half while eating it. Maybe I was overwhelmed with excitement, or maybe I was trying to suppress my rage due to insufficient meatball allotment.
Bunk’s meatball parmigiano was pretty good, but I should’ve ordered the renowned pork belly cubano like Corey suggested. The Grilled Cheese Grill is down the street from my apartment, and their variant (the Morton) is two bucks cheaper and probably one of the best meatball sandwiches I have ever eaten in my entire life.
Meatball Parmigiano Hero, $8 at Bunk Sandwiches. 8/10.**
*The children’s folk ballad “On Top of Spaghetti” references this phenomenon:
 
"On top of spaghetti, All covered with cheese,I lost my poor meatball, When somebody sneezed.
It rolled off the table,And on to the floor,And then my poor meatball,Rolled out of the door.
It rolled in the garden,And under a bush,And then my poor meatball,Was nothing but mush.”
**Bonus points because it was still better than Subway’s, but not as good as my mom’s because she puts tiny round pieces of mozzarella inside each meatball before she cooks them so it’s like an Easter egg.
