Celebrate National Sandwich Day With These 15 Mouth-Watering Sandwiches.

Born on November 3, 18th century Earl of Sandwich John Montagu was known for stuffing his dinner in between two slices of bread for a quick bite in between streaks of gambling. That's why November 3 is designated National Sandwich Day. You can celebrate in a few different ways.

Buying a sub and beverage at participating Subway restaurants will get you one free sub. In addition, as part of their #GoodFeedDeed initiative, they'll match every free sub with a donation to the Feeding America network of food banks. Who said no good ever came from eating a sandwich?

McAlister's Deli, Penn Station East Coast Subs, Schlotzsky’s, and a handful of other shops have their own special offers.

Another exciting way to celebrate is to stop at your favorite local sandwich shop. Don't have one? We've included a few favorites below along with some of the nation's top selling sandwiches.

We've highlighted everything from the classic chicken cheddar biscuit, a comfort food home run, to the ramen burger, an inventive twist to this staple food. If you're feeling creative, why not build your own mouthwatering versions?

#1. Keizo Shimamoto's Ramen Burger, Smorgasburg, Brooklyn

In 2013, Keizo Shimamoto was credited for making the original ramen burger, a combination of his Japanese American culture. The burger is part-LA and part-Tokyo. This creation might not be for everyone but a number of fans have called it "surprisingly good."

What's in it? With every order, you get a USDA Prime ground beef chuck patty and market fresh vegetables. The sandwich is held together by two ramen buns made from freshly cut noodles. Shimamoto also added his own shoyu glaze to the recipe. Itadakimasu!

#2. Mickey Handwich, Huey, Dewey & Louie's Good Time Cafe, Tokyo Disneyland

At Tokyo Disneyland, you can order a Mickey Handwich featuring your choice of fried or roasted chicken in a steamed bun. A few bloggers called this sandwich a winner for its presentation but for its taste? Not so much. One blogger, Honorable Rat, did enjoy the fried chicken version. Looks like you'll just have to see for yourself!

#3. Fried Clam and Pig Ear Sandwich, Loyal Nine, Cambridge

We only recommend this one if your heart can take it. Literally. Head to the Loyal Nine in East Cambridge for the Fried Clam and Pig Ear Sandwich (also available as a roll). Feast on Vermont Ossabaw bacon, frisee, fried-whole belly clams battered with IPA, corn meal and corn flour, and a fried egg (optional).

#4. Aphrodite, SuperNatural Sandwiches, San Diego

With a name like Aphrodite, you know you'll fall hard for this sandwich. Imagine this. You're biting into a grilled cheese sandwich but inside, you discover bites of garlic shrimp, crisp bacon, and fresh tomatoes. Are you in line yet?

#5. Beef Curry Banh Mi, ASAP Phorage, Playa del Rey

You can stop in Los Angeles or Playa del Rey for some locally sourced Asian sandwiches and pho. The Infatuation says that the Beef Curry Banh Mi is "truly special and completely different than any other banh mi you’ve had. It has the just right amount of spice to it and when dipped into the pho, it’s heaven." According to the same reviewer, it is only available at the Playa location.
