If you’ve ever tried it – you know what we mean.

Is a sandwich the perfect food? Is it as good as it gets in terms of food that people enjoy on a regular basis? If it were up to us, yes, and yes. You can enjoy a sandwich at a restaurant, at home, on the go, in space, there is literally nowhere that a sandwich is not perfect. All across the planet, there are unique sandwiches too comprised of unique ingredients. No, we are not “World travelers,” but we have been around a good bit and can honestly say that we know where the greatest sandwich in the world can be found. Chick-Fil-A? Nope. Popeyes? Nope. Subway? Not even close. We believe that the absolute best of the best sandwich can be found right in the heart of St. Petersburg, Florida at The Galley. We are obsessed with this sandwich simply because of how unbelievably good it is. Before we start drooling all over our keyboard, we’ll break down why this sandwich is simply sensational.

The Bread

We may have differing opinions on what the best sandwich ever is, however, there is something that we can all agree on. Good bread makes the sandwich. At The Galley, they use pressed Cuban bread to hold together the fresh and delicious ingredients that make up the Don Pollo. We’ve eaten this sandwich a combined 100+ times and can honestly say, the bread has been crisp, flavorful, light, and refreshing every single time. It never gets too soggy, breaks apart, or even fails to hold the sandwich together. It is perfectly sliced 10 out of 10 times to ensure that the diner enjoying the sandwich is in for a treat.

The Chicken

Across the United States, there are millions, yes, millions of chicken sandwiches available that all claim to have the best flavor and ingredients. At The Galley, the Don Pollo puts them to shame. Their chicken is grilled to perfection, ideally seasoned, and sliced perfectly so that at least one piece of chicken can be found in every tantalizing bite.

The Havarti and Cherry Peppers

Who would have thought that Havarti and cherry peppers would be such an amazing combination? The team at The Galley, obviously. It is the perfect harmony of sweet and savory, creamy and fresh. We cannot get enough of this combination and have woken up in a cold sweat before thinking about how fantastic this dynamic duo is. Obsessed is an understatement.

The Pickle Aioli

Last but absolutely not least. This ingredient takes the Don Pollo from a great sandwich to an out of this world sandwich. It is flavorful and purposeful; tasting great while still allowing the flavors of the other ingredients to shine. We would like to think it is the equivalent of the last splash of paint Jackson Pollock splashes on a canvas. 

We’re not saying that all other sandwiches are bad – we actually adore sandwiches and will eat nearly all of them with a smile on our faces, we’re just saying that the Don Pollo is miles better than those. It is the stuff of legends and we encourage you to rally to The Galley in order to make one of these your lunch/dinner. St. Pete’s culinary scene is definitely on the come-up and right at the top is this iconic sandwich available right in Downtown.

Give the Don Pollo a go, you will not be disappointed in the slightest, you have our Hashtag Creative guarantee.
