Yesterday’s post on Super Pan Latino Sandwich Shop kicked up a bit of dust in the comments section about its relatively high prices. Some thought that $12 sounded like too much to pay for the beef rib bolillo — a crusty submarine packed with shredded beef. I agree that it’s not a price I’d pay all the time, but it seemed fair considering the amazing girth of this sandwich (I think two people could share it with a salad) and the evident quality of the ingredients.
I noticed the same discussion going on after Creative Loafing’s rave review of Super Pan.
So I ask you: what’s the upper limit a restaurant should charge for a sandwich? Does the very word “sandwich” tacitly mean that it should come in under $10?
And doesn’t Flip Burger Boutique serve a $40 Kobe/foie gras burger?
