To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of gourmet sandwiches and more at Saco Island Deli in downtown Saco.
Family-owned and -operated, Saco Island Deli uses all-natural and wholesome ingredients to prepare a lunch menu of bread-bound bites and made-from-scratch soups. Unlike Thanksgiving’s traditional turkey milkshakes, the Turkey Roo-ben ($7.79)—which partners pan-roasted turkey with Swiss cheese, special slaw, and thousand island dressing—is best enjoyed without a dollop of whipped cream. Sliced apple atop the Waldorf chicken salad sandwich ($6.49) provides noontime noshers with a satisfying crunch, while the edible engineering behind the Jersey Joe ($9.29), a triple-decker concoction of meat, Swiss cheese, and special slaw, proves the viability of marble rye as a building material. Keep sweet-toothed tendencies from leading to afternoon caramel benders by indulging in a post-meal homemade gourmet cookie.
