This Is Offensive to the BLT Community

Posted by on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 7:50 AM


"Attached is a photo I took in December in Terminal 3 of the Delhi airport in India," writes Slog tipper Bhutan. "It's at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf shop. In their showcase was what they call an LGBT sandwich. I thought it was kind of cute, so I took a picture of it. The guy working there said it was filled with lettuce, gouda, balsamic spread, and tomatoes."

One of my favorite cafes in Minneapolis has an LGBT sandwich. It's a BLT with guacamole, so it's basically unfuckwithable.

It looks and sounds delicious. Cindy Bigots will be outraged.

I'd think bisexuals would rather be bacon than balsamic spread.

I think anybody would rather be bacon.

@4 I don't think vegans/vegetarians would like to be bacon.

Hmm how about LGBTQ (Q for quail egg)

A sandwich should never be over 80% bread. What is this, Indian Subway?

#1 has it right; the only addition that needs to be made to a BLT is some avocado. This is merely a confused upstart attempting to cash in on the BLT's good name, and I think the LGBT community is as interested in a good porking as the rest of us.

@5, @7--quince paste? Just to really get in there and fight with the balsamic spread?

@10 if the Q is quince then the B should go back to being bacon. The gouda is the problem.

So... a BLT with quince paste and gorgonzola.

Gouda: weird
Quince: yes
Balsamic: overdone. Brie to replace the gouda. Besides, brie is totally more gay than gouda (funky, gooey, smells like cum).

The Coastal Kitchen on Capitol Hill has an LGBT. Lettuce, gouda, bacon, tomato. Yum.

@5 I was at a food focused event this past weekend where 3 out of 4 people who had RSVP'd as "vegetarian" asked to be served bacon.

@11: It's the same logo. My guess is yes, it is the same outfit. According to Wikipedia: The chain has over 900 locations in 23 countries.

This just made me go out and get a BLT

Once you've gone gouda, you'll never go back.

I gotta get pedantic here. A spread is not included in the ingredients of a sandwich. I don't care if it's made w/ real ambrosia collected from the garden of Hesperides. You don't put it in the name. You can have a pastrami & swiss on rye. You can't have a pastrami & swiss & mustard on rye.

Because that would just be stupid.

This sandwich is an LGT, served w/ Balsamic spread.

Erm, so my computer glitched, and at first it seemed to have failed with the first attempt. If there's a mod anywhere, feel free to delete this comment, along with one of the duplicates. Thanks! <3

@1 CINDY BIGOTS! Thanks for bringing it back. That thread, whatever it was for, was really funny.

@12--Quince with BACON! YES! Either way, the bacon needs to return.

I ran a poll on my LiveJournal years ago that went, "If a queer-friendly coffee shop were to offer a LGBT sandwich - supposing the B, L, and T were the traditional bacon, lettuce, and tomato - what should the G be?" Guacamole won by a landslide, but gouda was a fair second. (I don't think anyone voted for gum.)

@15 I prepare and serve food to large groups of people as part of my job, and it always amuses/annoys me how many people will say they are vegan and then eat things they know have dairy or eggs in them, saying, "I'm not that strict." It amuses me because it's really common--I guess when people are on vacation they like to break their usual food rules. It annoys me (mildly) because we always make sure there are options for the people who let us know they have dietary restrictions or preferences. Also the people who "try to eat gluten-free when I have the opportunity" can kiss my gluten-intolerant ass. (Which will be a more pleasant experience now that I'm gluten-free and a lot less farty.)

I'm not vegan or vegetarian but I don't like bacon and certainly don't want to be bacon. And Brie is simply disgusting. Gouda's OK, though.
