By the time they came around with their overpriced offerings on my Munich-to-Copenhagen flight, it had been about five hours since I’d had breakfast, what with the train ride to the airport, and check-in, and the plane arriving late from its previous flight, and what-not. So, especially considering breakfast had just been a smoothie, I was a bit peckish, and willing to spend €5 for a sandwich.

As it turns out, it was a worthwhile investment — I was surprised to find the sandwich quite flavorful. The salami had a nice bite to it, which was complemented very nicely by the subtle tang of the red pepper. I will have to bear that combination in mind for future replication.

There’s a Polish [1] meat shop at a farmer’s market not far from where I grew up. They have a lot of great products, like “TV stick” and Weisswurst, but as far as I’m concerned their best offering is the imported Hungarian salami, which is delectable beyond compare. And which, it turns out, makes for a nice sandwich as well.

[1] Yes, they’re Polish. Yes, they also sell Bavarian and Hungarian sausages, and as meats from a bunch of other countries as well. And yes, and most important, it’s all delicious.

A perfectly competent sandwich, if nothing particularly special. Made on an assembly line.
