NYC Best Sandwiches: Tiny’s Giant Sandwich Shop Is No Pun (Vegetarians Welcome)

February 20, 2009

Not that we didn’t already know, but Tiny’s Giant Sandwich Shop, on the corner of Rivington Street and Norfolk Street in the Lower East Side, is awesome.  Seriously spicy chipotle mayo fires up the off-the-menu “Chicken Special” filled with juicy grilled chicken, thinly sliced tomato and onion, crisp bacon, and melted cheddar on a toasted semolina hero ($8.00).  It’s the chicken version of the famous “Spicy Rizzak.”  Read on to find out about another off-the-menu special and why Tiny’s is equally delicious for Vegetarians…




Tiny’s Giant Sandwich Shop: Serious Sandwiches Worth the Trip

January 22, 2008

An unassuming black facade with no visible signage greeted me on the corner of Norfolk & Rivington. NYC Food Guy did it again, he traveled from the UWS to the LES only to find the darkness of a black security gate preventing another culinary adventure. Suddenly, my nostrils twitched, alive, that familiar scent floating in the air; frying bacon, it was near. And with only Sugar Sweet Sunshine, Schiller’s Liquor Bar, and a hardware store in the vicinity, it was a good bet that intoxicating scent, warming up the crisp winter air, was coming from inside Tiny’s Giant Sandwich Shop.

Owned by a vegetarian and known for their Big Mack Daddy, a beast of a veggie burger, (any sandwich can be tofu-ized) Tiny’s doesn’t forget about the carnivores and puts a delicious spin on some traditional sandwiches like the Spicy Rizzak: Sliced turkey, crisp bacon, melted cheddar, tomato, onion, and some seriously delicious Chipotle mayo with a real bite:
