Seattle needs a sandwich to call its own. What’ll it be?

After reading about my Reuben sandwich-jag, Eater George Wing threw down the gauntlet. He wrote:

“Seattle needs a sandwich. I feel like every world-class city has its own sandwich. We don’t. San Francisco has the Mission burrito, Paris the Croque Monsieur, Chicago the Italian Beef, Mexico City the fabulous `torta’ on bolillo bread, Buenos Aires the empanada, Philly the cheese steak. And don’t even get me started on New York. Boston invented the Fluffernutter. Montreal has the `smoked meat’ — yum! There are Miami Cubans, Maine lobster rolls. But what could (should) our sandwich be? For some reason the salmon burger doesn’t seem like it’s going to get there: it’s not popular enough. Maybe a reader poll could get this topic in front of people and inspire someone to create the sandwich we deserve?”

By George, I think he’s right!

Here’s my vote: a Dungeness crab cake (I’m envisioning a buttery filler-free crab cake a la the Steelhead Diner’s), with a schmear of mayo (blended with Mama Lil’s Kick Butt peppers), on a Vietnamese French roll (available locally at Vietnamese groceries and Asian supermarkets). Your ideas?
