A heavy downpour couldn’t keep foodies from gathering in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, to experience the top ten sandwiches that comprised the Grandwich competition on August 6. The standout? The G-Wrap. It featured crisp seared Big B Farms pulled pork, spiced barbeque sauce, local Andouille sausage, spicy pickle “slaw” on BBQ spiced naan bread, and was the winner of the Grandwich competition.
The G-Wrap was created by The B.O.B.’s Bobarinos restaurant in downtown Grand Rapids. It was just one of 48 local restaurants that created a new-recipe sandwich for the competition which allowed people to vote for their favorite sandwich. When asked about the inspiration behind the G-Wrap, Jared Miller, executive chef of The B.O.B. said, “It wraps Grand Rapids up!”
The top ten restaurants were the Grand Central Market, The BOB – Bobarinos, Skywalk Deli, 25 Kitchen + Bar, St. Mary’s Health Care, Peppinos, Greenwell Gastro Pub, Hopcat, the Omelette Shoppe and Rico’s Deli.
