5 Gourmet Sandwiches to Sink Your Teeth Into

State & Allen

Looking for an easy lunch? 

Maybe you want a light dinner?

No, we aren’t talking about the classic pb&j your mom sent you for lunch in 5th grade. 

 We’re talking gourmet, filling, and mouthwatering sandwiches you’ll crave long after the last bite. Here are 5 delicious Dallas sandwiches to sink your teeth into at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar:

 

1.   Italia Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

Ooey gooey grilled cheese gets a makeover and you’re gonna love it! We start with rustic white bread, then load it with fresh mozzarella cheese, spinach, artichoke, tomato, and basil, then grill it up to golden perfection. It’s so good and pairs really well with our venison and Wagyu chili. 

 

2.   Crispy Pork Belly Cuban Sandwich

 

Our State & Allen Cuban sandwich is a spectacular twist on the original ham and cheese favorite. Our sandwich features house pickled jalapenos, ham, pickles, swiss cheese, and our house State & Allen mustard. 

 

3.   Baja Chicken Sandwich

 

We start with a challah bun, then load it up with tender chicken breast, avocado, corn pico, pepper jack, and our cholula mayo. This fresh flavor combo will have you wishing for warmer weather and days by the pool!

 

4.   Blackened Fish Sandwich

 

We could all benefit from adding a little more fish to our diet; why not do it with our blackened fish sandwich?! Flaky white fish, slaw, and a red tartar sauce, all on a challah fun makes this sandwich perfection. Also try it as tacos! 

 

5.   Curry Chicken Salad Pita

 

Our curried chicken salad is like nothing you’ve had before, loaded with grapes, toasted pistachios, red bell peppers, spinach, and of course, curry chicken. Pair it with one of our handcrafted cocktails or a craft beer straight from the tap.
