Spolumbo's, Calgary

I may be a small, Asian woman, but I often have the appetite of a large football player. So Spolumbo’s pork cutlet on a kaiser ($8.50) is right up my alley.

Spolumbo’s was started by three former Calgary Stampeder players. They know how to feed people. The Inglewood deli is always busy, and they do a brisk catering business. They also make awesome sausages, and have ridiculously friendly people behind the counter.

Calling this miraculous sandwich “cutlet on a kaiser” is misleading because as you can see, it’s TWO cutlets piled on a chewy kaiser.

The only thing I was thinking as I devoured this for lunch one day was, “Mmmm… I want to marry this sandwich.”

And “With this bag of pickles, I thee wed.”
