LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Ever heard the phrase "never trust a skinny cook"? Well, that won't be a problem at Fat Sal's. This West Coast purveyor of delicious, greasy East Coast sandwiches was founded by the namesake chef and his two friends, one of whom just happened to play Turtle on Entourage. The menu is filled with fat sandwiches, which are basically entire meals on a bun, as well as more reasonable sandwiches, burgers, wraps, hot dogs, salads, and "fat fries", which come in variations from plain to Philly cheesesteak- or Carne Asada-topped. And if you're really feeling brave, you can try to tackle the Big Fat Fatty, a 27-inch sandwich topped with cheesesteak, cheeseburgers, pastrami, chicken fingers, bacon, mozzarella sticks, fried eggs, jalapeño poppers, fries, onion rings, chili, marinara, and "fat sauce" — it costs $50, but it's free if you can scarf one down in 40 minutes or less. Good luck with that.
