Eastern Maine's best sandwich is... | News
BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- What makes a good sandwich? Today at the Bangor Hilton Garden Inn, 17 restaurants and cafes got to show off what they think is the best sandwich in Eastern Maine.
Sandwiches ranged from the classic lobster roll, to a grilled ahi tuna sandwich and a blackened pulled pork sandwich with macaroni and cheese! The sandwiches were judged on creativity, flavor, and presentation, and the judges were hoping to be surprised too.
"Something that we haven't necessecarily seen before all the time. It's something that has a nice flavor profile, a new spin on an old favorite maybe," judges Melanie Brookes and Emily Burnham said.
The winning sandwich was a roast pork loin with pickled apples and shallots made by culinary students at the United Techonolgy Center in Bangor.
Of course, everyone has their personal favorite. People have been sharing theirs all day on our facebook page.
