Senate sandwich superbowl

After rousing wins by the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts in conference championship games this weekend, Hill staffers will get to do more than just cheer for the two teams in the weeks leading up to the Feb. 7 Superbowl. They'll get to taste them, thanks to special sandwiches created by the Senate cafeteria's American Grill.

Starting Monday, the official sandwich of New Orleans, the shrimp po' boy, will face off against Indiana's beloved pork tenderloin sandwich in a battle that will last until the two home teams take the field in Miami.

Sources told ITK that Restaurant Associates worked in tandem with staffers from Indiana to come up with the pork sandwich, which consists of a pounded, deep fried pork loin served on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and pickles.  The po' boy is a fried seafood sandwich on a long roll. It can be served with just shrimp, but it's considered "dressed" when accompanied by lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise.
