    Honest question, is there such a thing as an Irish sandwich?

    I don't mean to be forward, or offensive, but what does "creole cooking" mean to you? I am honestly very interested.

    rocketsjudoka pretty much nails it.

    Adams is obviously referring to the British, but it also applies to the Irish in my experience:

    “There is a feeling which persists in England that making a sandwich interesting, attractive, or in any way pleasant to eat is something sinful that only foreigners do.

    ``Make 'em dry,'' is the instruction buried somewhere in the collective national consciousness, ``make 'em rubbery. If you have to keep the buggers fresh, do it by washing 'em once a week.''

    It is by eating sandwiches in pubs on Saturday lunchtimes that the British seek to atone for whatever their national sins have been. They're not altogether clear what those sins are, and don't want to know either. Sins are not the sort of things one wants to know about. But whatever their sins are they are amply atoned for by the sandwiches they make themselves eat.” - Douglas Adams, "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish"

    Yall ever had THIS rice dish? https://www.chron.com/entertainment...ice-salad-at-Chris-Shepherd-s-UB-12937589.php

    ONG it slaps. It still pops up for sale occasionally.

    Crispy rices go hard in general. Asian or Persian.

    Soft rice is fine but common.

    SOGGY SWEET rice is something else though - it's like boomer ****s with no taste buds found a way to ruin rice. I bet Ken Paxton ****ing LOVES gumming rice pudding. ****ing tool.

    Legally, in Indiana at least, tacos (and burritos, wraps, gyros, etc...) are now sandwiches.

    Long story short:

    Guy owns strip center and wants to open a taco shop
    Property is deed restricted to only allow "made to order, sub-style sandwiches" as a food option
    Guy sues, saying tacos & burritos are "mexican-style sandwiches"
    Guy wins

    bringing a sandwich for lunch to school is more respectable.

    DEI for sandwhiches!

    Now I have to go to Indiana and open a Bao shop and see if I can get Bao called sandwiches. Then my nefarious Woke plot will come to fruition.

    Wait until someone complains that a traditional sandwich made of sliced bread cannot compete against a wrap where the fillings have been transferred to a tortilla.

    No idea, you're flying solo on this one. I hope you can figure it out.

    Having made visits to Indiana for 30 years with various women, I can say that the Indiana definition of ‘Mexican Food’ is very, very loose. Unless there is some Mexican sub segment that likes tomato paste with ranch as salsa.
