Now that you mention it, I don't think I've ever seen a PB&J on a menu.

I've only seen it on one or two children's menus.

I like to add avocado and sprouts to my BLT so I can have a BLAST.

That sounds much better than a BLOAT! Don't like raw onion, anyway

I was surprised there were no Danish open-faced sandwiches.

That "Montreal style smoked meat sandwich, Canada" might be what they look like in the rest of Canada, but not in Montreal. If one was served that way in Montreal, we would want to know if the smoked meat cutter is new at the job. Yes, the meat should be cut by hand, but it should be cut a lot thinner than that (and piled a bit higher).

They have muffalettas in Italy? I thought that was a New Orleans specialty. I know it was invented in New Orleans.

taxlady, there's no guarantee that the person who wrote this is any kind of expert on world cuisine

Agreed, GG. I'm sure Australia has many more regional faves than the vegemite sandwich, for example.

As others have said though, this topic has sparked some good conversation.

Whats kind interesting though , is we are looking at it from our point of view. Sure, I live in NY and i can go through a list of sandwiches that be a better representation of NY or even USA. That being said, I have several friends from around the world ( South America, and European Countries) . We , on occasion, send regional foods to each other to try. And all of them have asked me to send Peanut butter and Jelly in the past. ( this goes back a decade or so, when it wasn't as easy to get things on the internet as it is now). So from their point of view, the PBJ is right on .
