Are U Hungry? The Fat Sandwich.

I fully regretted eating this monster of a sandwich. It all started on a cold and windy Friday night.  I had just gotten back to dorm after going out and I had this sudden craving to eat. We all know that Canyon Pizza is busy on Friday nights so i attempted to find an alternative. My friend had recommended me to try this all famous sandwich that resides in State College. Feeling very spontaneous I told myself, sure why the hell not?

This sandwich shop is called Are U Hungry, a suiting name that completely relates to what they serve. Their specialties consisted of several different sandwiches piled high with various ingredients ranging from chicken tenders to mozzarella sticks, and even macaroni and cheese. At this point, I was completely sold, I wanted all of this in my sandwich, and for research purposes I decided just that. I ordered a custom made sandwich filed with everything; thin cut slices of juicy steak, 2 tangy mozzarella sticks, crisp hand-battered onion rings, your typical Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, 1 perfectly seasoned chicken tender and who could forget the fries. All of that went into my custom sandwich, a sandwich that cost me an “Andrew Jackson”. Outrageous.

I found out that I would regret this decision of ordering a monstrosity of a sandwich too late. It was enormous. It was everything I did not expect it to be. The ingredients I decided on were all over the place. I had told myself beforehand that these were all ingredients I liked but I doubted that they would work well together, and boy was I right. The first couple of bites feel like heaven. All these flavors coming at you, from the chicken tenders to the macaroni and cheese. However, there is this law in economics called the Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility. As I continue to eat this sandwich nothing will taste as good as the first bite, and the following bites get even more repetitive. It was so bad that I had to stop eating halfway, because this calorie ridden, trans fat filled behemoth was too much to handle. I quickly surrendered after successfully devouring half of the sandwich and I popped an alka-seltzer into my water cup and prayed that my stomach with the aid of medicine could digest all the impurities that were just idly sitting inside.

I will probably order another sandwich but this time with less ingredients to lighten the load. With the conclusion of my first impression, I give it a 7/10 at best.

Bon Appetit.

    Wow. That seems like it would be one intense situation. I’ve always been interested in these restaurants that serve these crazy sandwiches. That being said, I don’t think that I will be ordering one myself, but I commend you and your blog for giving me an outside looking in perspective!

    I have once indulged in sandwiches such as the “Fat Elvis,” and the “Fat Blunt,” and all I have to say is….Mother of God. Your analysis of your custom sandwich was spot on; at first its a great feeling to have everything you’ve ever wanted on the same sandwich, but this discrete equilibrium of self esteem and culinary satisfaction soon goes to hell. I was terrified that I was able to finish it, and even more terrified that I didn’t drop dead upon doing so. Your blogs are entertaining to say the least – keep it up!
