Alright. This blog has been a long time coming. I’m about to drop some important knowledge on you. This could, quite possibly, be the most important thing anyone will ever tell you about university life and Lethbridge in general. Are you ready?
A Jamie Sandwich.
That’s right, boys and girls. It is imperative that you all head over to Backstreet West and enjoy a Jamie sandwich. Now, I’m unsure who Jamie was and how he got a sandwich named after him, exactly, but any Lethbridge veteran will tell you that the Jamie is a legend. For $9.50 you can have a Jamie by itself, and for $10.50 you can enjoy a side with it – the pasta salad is amazing.
By now you’re likely wondering, “Bri, what is a Jamie and why is it worth my precious time?” And the answer to that is – a Jamie is a miraculous sandwich. It’s a party for your taste buds. It’s a delightful foray into high-end cuisine that will tantalize your senses.
Essentially, a Jamie is an individual sized pizza, flipped over so all the toppings are inside and the crust makes an almost sandwich. Inside, you’ll find mayo, a tomato and some lettuce. Voila! Delicious sandwich. But it gets better, because you choose three toppings for your Jamie, in addition to the cheesy, lettucey, tomatoey goodness. Anchovies, back bacon, pineapple, onions, ham… you name it, you can get it. Almost. My recommendation is the tropical sauce – half BBQ, half pizza sauce, all deliciousness.
So, if I can leave you with one thing to do while you’re here, one thing to change your life… it’s a Jamie sandwich. So grab a new friend, old friend, classmate, roommate, anyone! And enjoy a Jamie as soon as you can!
