Anyone who thinks the world’s most expensive sandwiches are in NY or LA are in for a surprise. Meet the Michigan (yeah, MI, you got a problem wid dat?) based Zingerman’s, home of the $175 Reuben sandwich. The unique thing about this sandwich is that is that it actually comes to you! Skip the cab fare from JFK into Times Square, sit back, relax and wait for the doorbell to ring. Zingerman’s offers online ordering and a whole lot of other stuff for the money. Their “kit” includes:
“Choose Corned Beef or Pastrami, and Rye or Pumpernickel packed in cartoon cardboard gift box with a whole lot of other stuff: freshly sliced Emmentaler Swiss cheese, Zingerman’s homemade redskin potato salad, coleslaw, Sauerkraut, Russian dressing, garlicky pickles, Magic Brownie Bites, a nosher-sized Sourcream Coffeecake, a jar of Raye’s mustard, plus sandwich baskets and Zingerman’s liners, Zingerman’s napkins, and and a couple of tattoos (temporary, alas). ”
