JOIN THE CLUB: readers vote on their favourite sandwiches

  • Print

The votes -- burp -- are in.

Two weeks ago, we introduced you to Terry Proveda, a Red River College student who has been on a two-year quest to find Winnipeg's primo clubhouse sandwich. At the tail-end of that piece, we asked readers to let Proveda know -- through us -- where he should dine next.

Close to 200 people responded. Top picks included Nick's Inn in Headingley, the Eye Opener Diner on Main Street and Luda's Deli on Aberdeen Avenue. But the runaway No. 1 choice, named by 72 readers, was... well, why don't we let one of its fans tell you.

"I am contacting you today in regards to your latest article highlighting my favourite sandwich -- the majestic clubhouse. I have been an avid consumer of these delectable sandwiches for many years and in my humble opinion, Rae and Jerry's Steak House is home to the best behemoth out there. I recommend ordering it with side bacon."

-- Mark S.

 

Thanks to everyone who got in touch. And congratulations to Fred Horbaty, the winner of a $25 gift certificate to the Met, located at 261 Donald St. Horbaty cast his vote for the clubhouse at the Underground Café on Arthur Street. He also gave an honourable mention to Fingers, a rib joint that used to be located on St. James Street, a slapshot away from the old Winnipeg Arena. "You needed to dislocate your jaw to bite into their clubhouse," Horbaty wrote.
