The Schmitter

If you have ever been to Citizen's Bank for a Phillies game, you know that the food there is top notch ball park grub. But a couple years ago, I was turned on to a little known sandwich stand there that has taken the ball park sandwich to the next level. The Schmitter is an amazing sandwich, but when I heard you could try the original in Germantown, I knew I had to give it a go. McNally's Tavern is a hole in the wall, with no real signage, but if you know, you go for the Schmitter. I took a long bike ride through Wissahickon, and after a super tough climb up Bells Mill Road, a magical sandwich like this one hit the spot. I could describe the ingredients, but I think this sums it up better than I could. The special sauce (homemade Thousand Island) is out of this world, the grilled onions, and salty salami are perfect partners, and the Kaiser roll really pulls it all together and makes for a perfect serving vessel. This is one of my favorite sandwiches of all time. And an awesome bike ride for a Sunday afternoon.
