"famous" corned beef sandwich
7x7 Big Eat 2011 - #73

This is THE sandwich that The Sentinel is known for.  Ive waited forever to try this place due to the long lines and its limited operating hours Monday through Friday.  Upon inspection the sandwich looked promising (look at that corned beef!), but what a disappointment all I could taste was the mustard slaw.  I guess I'm in the minority against this sandwich.

I had to try this sandwich since I love lamb and I love eggplant.  Overall it wasn't as disappointing as the corned beef sandwich.  It reminded me of a Mediterranean take on a sloppy joe with the minced meat and the bun.  Nothing horrible, but not something I would order again.

Verdict:  Pretty hyped - not sure if I'm going to go back anytime soon.
