How I heard of this place: My sister was granted a coupon and had to partake of something free. She raved and raved about it, gathered a following, and thus, it was our turn to enjoy this New York Delicatessen.

Type of cuisine: Sandwiches galore. Side salads. Soda.

Ambiance: Loud and corporate/franchise interiors are hidden behind the small strip-mall locale in the north end of Bellingham.

Red, green and white, laminated signs and posters, federal and local law enforcement memorabilia and a flat-screen television showcasing the Seahawks game, this mini sports bar sandwich shoppe has everything a hungry spectator could want on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

What I ordered: At my sisters recommendation, my husband and I shared the Throgs Neck Bridge ($6.49 for half of a hero, an addition $3.89 for the whole hero),

a warm sandwich including fried chicken breast, turkey, bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado and ranch dressing.

My mom, awaiting this moment to have breakfast, selected the Carter ($1.99), a plain bagel with cream cheese. Our two dining companions selected their favorites, one of which was a hearty Reuben sandwich! A side of red potato bacon salad and a fountain soda completed our combo meal.

What I loved: Fresh avocado. While the sandwich itself lacked the warmth promised, the ranch dressing and the fried chicken seemed less than fresh, the fun of a foot-long sandwich enjoyed with my family and good friends made up for it. Gandolfo's Kitchen Entry

Why I loved it: Simple food. Served quickly. A husband-and-wife run franchise, where they know your name and your favorite order!

Cost: Average ($6 – $10 per sandwich)
