Country Velador's 5 Best Sandwiches in Metro Phoenix

The countdown to Best of Phoenix is on. Mark your calendar: This year's issue will be on newsstands September 26. What better way to warm up than by asking some local "experts" to list their own personal bests? This week Country Velador, pastry chef at Cowboy Ciao in Scottsdale, shares her favorite sandwiches around town. (And we promised to mention that she's also crazy about the grab 'n' go sandwiches at Cowboy Ciao's new airport location.)

Nothing makes my heart sing like a good sandwich (well, except for good fried chicken or a well-made breakfast). I grew up on sandwiches and to this day, there's nothing like going to my mom's house, having her pull out some good bread and making a sandwich with a big pile of BBQ potato chips on the side, or if I'm lucky, some Ruffles with ketchup. These are some of my favorite sandwiches around town.
