what i will miss eating in seattle: day three
Paseo Caribbean Roast sandwich, you complete me.
I will miss you and all your ridiculous deliciousness. I will miss your succulent roast pork shoulder, your creamy aioli, your pungent pickled jalapeños, your sweet caramelized onions, and your weirdly warm—but still totally delicious—romaine lettuce. I will miss eagerly anticipating your arrival, how my stomach can’t help but excitedly churn and rumble with impatience. I will miss how when enjoying your sustenance in the company of others, silence abounds as it is common knowledge not to disrupt the intense satisfaction perceived from savoring you in all your splendor. I will miss waiting in the laughably long lines to order you, how your makers sometimes run out of bread, and how I somehow never have enough napkins to tidy myself up after a lunch with you. Paseo Caribbean Roast sandwich, you are a civic treasure and I will miss you dearly. I hope you have a great summer and I can’t wait to see you again.
