When it comes to Pittsburgh sandwiches, Primanti Bros. makes everyone’s short list. They are the quintessential working man’s sandwich, afterall. But when Primanti’s comes out with a special edition version? I can’t help but be intrigued. The latest style, The Polish Hill, features kielbasa and Mrs. T’s Pierogies. Here are four reasons to love Primanti Bros. and Mrs. T’s Pierogies Polish Hill Sandwich!
If you ever tried a Primanti Bros. sandwich, you know the basics. Two thickly-sliced pieces of Italian bread, meat, savory cole slaw, tomatoes, and a handful of French fries. But sometimes Primantis throws a(tasty!) wrench into the mix, AKA a special edition sandwich. Partnering with another Pennsylvania favorite, Mrs. T’s Pierogies, its latest is The Polish Hill. Here’s the scoop on why I’m digging it.
1. Because The Polish Hill Sandwich Is an Tribute to a Pittsburgh Neighborhood
There’s a fun saying about Pittsburgh: it’s all about Pierogies and Pasta. The pasta comes from its thick, Italian heritage (have you ever tried Pierogi Lasagna or Savory Pierogi Bruschetta?). And the Pierogies? It’s compliments of its Polish heritage.
If you’re not familiar with Pittsburgh and its neighborhoods, Polish Hill is an location that’s only a few blocks away from Primanti Bros.’ flagship location in The Strip District.
2. Because Kielbasa, Sauerkraut, & Pierogies Should Have Always Been on a Sandwich
It’s a brilliant concept, adding kielbasa, sauerkraut, and Mrs. T’s Classic Onion pierogies to a sandwich. Add provolone cheese, Primanti Bros. beer mustard, slaw and tomato, and you’ve got a Polish cuisine-inspired beauty of a sandwich.
Think about what I just wrote. Primanti Bros. actually swapped out French fries for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I seriously cannot recall a time when fries have been omitted, but it’s really fun that they have. You’ll still get your fill of potato – but this time it’s Classic Onion Pierogies.
3. Because The Polish Hill Travels Well
If it’s one thing I know, I know that Primanti Bros.’ sandwiches travel VERY well. Living outside of Pittsburgh I have been known to bring food home to my family. Whether it’s a weeknight meal or the star of your next weekend get-together with friends, it’s super easy to grab a couple sandwiches and go!
4. Because Good Things Never Last
Just like a good Polish Festival, it’s only around for a short time. The same goes for The Polish Hill. Your last chance to grab this delicious sandwich is next week! So polka your way to a location soon.
