Working in NYC – many times I have to have lunch on the go.  I don’t usually like the prices associated with having lunch on the go  so I get super excited when I have a good catered lunch (free 99!). But what’s even better than a sponsored sandwich?  A sponsored sandwich with a twist!  When one of my vendors ordered lunch from ‘wichcraft , I fell in love. The sandwiches were AMAZE  ( yes, amaze – not amazing)!  I tried both of ( half of each sandwich) these beauties pictured below and I must say both were equally great! In fact, they were so good  it inspired me to try my own version.  I modified a bit to cater to my tastebuds but it still came out delish. If you’re ever in the NYC area – check out ‘wichcraft. If you’re not in NYC area,  then make your own version! :)
