This is torture. PURE TORTURE. Browsing through Scanwiches has made me so incredibly hungry. I can barely complete a sentence before Iâ€™m back on the site, scrolling through the sandwiches…drooling on the keyboard. Okay, wait. Iâ€™m going to go eat lunch and then Iâ€™ll write this thingâ€¦
Okay. Much better.
So, the creator of this website, Jon Chonko, lives in NYC and has access to tons of amazing sandwiches. Apparently the word â€˜scanwichesâ€™ popped into his head first, and then he decided to give it a go using an old scanner that his girlfriend gave him, and it took off from there. Aesthetically, the websiteâ€™s design is minimal, giving it a clean look where nothing detracts from the sandwiches, which makes it pretty easy to spend a good hour or so looking them all over without being distracted by ads or whatever. This site is especially useful because he lists the ingredients, so you can recreate them at home if youâ€™d like!
Watch the magic happen!
Here are some of my favorites:
May 22nd: Eggplant parmesan on a toasted hero.
May 5th: Sliced grilled steak, onion, peppers, and chipotle mayo on a hero.
June 15th: Hot steamed lobster, drawn butter, on a hot dug bun
Which scanwiches are your favorite?
