You Down w/ SKC?

The sandwiches from Sal, Kris, & Charlie's (SKC) have been a staple in my diet for over three years, and are the number one reason why I can't seem to reach my "target weight."

Sal, Kris, & Charlie's Deli
33-12 23rd Ave
Astoria, NY 11102

SKC is the self-proclaimed Sandwich King of Astoria, and I'm not one to disagree.  They are best known for their colossal cold-cut creation, "The Bomb", a skyscraper of meat & cheese constructed w/ nearly every deli meat they have in house -- prosciutto, salami, capicola, mortadela, bologna, roast beef, turkey, boiled ham, American cheese, and mild provolone are just a sampling of "The Bomb's" contents.

I suggest getting this sandwich cut into quarters, as it's easily enough for two feedings, even for a gavone such as myself.  

--truly a blue collar work of art.

To be honest, I don't often get "The Bomb" anymore, there's just too much going on -- too much meat, too much flavor.  Instead, I try to dream up custom combinations for the boys at SKC to interpret.  Here's a short list of some other personal favorites:

  • Roast beef, cheddar, dijon mustard, lettuce & onions.  
  • Turkey, roast beef, mortadela, American cheese, thousand island dressing, lettuce, tomato & onion.
  • Italian tuna, sharp provolone, roasted peppers, lettuce & onions on whole wheat.  
  • Roast pork, spicy capicola, Swiss, mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato & onions.  
  • Buffalo chicken, thin-sliced ham, alpine lace Swiss, lettuce, tomato, onions, oil & vinegar.
