Greatest thing since sliced bread



With the glut of global influences flavoring even common cooking these days, describing a sandwich isn't as easy as it used to be. So don't expect to walk into Roly Poly Sandwiches (2413 Edgewater Drive; 407-246-1121) and get a slab of meat between two slices of bread.

The "roly poly" is flour tortillas wrapped around 50 possible varieties of filling. Items like the "turkey applejack," with Jack cheese, turkey, apple butter and mushrooms, and the "chicken fajita" of sliced chicken breast, cheddar and fajita sauce, are pressed on a grill. Others, such as the "Russian beef" (roast beef, scallions, Russian dressing and Brie) and "Thai tuna" (flaked tuna salad, avocado, mango chutney and Thai pepper sauce) are rolled cold. Sandwiches range from $3.25 to $6.95. The tortillas are fresh, the servings are huge, and the choices will bring you back many times.
