The sandwich dates back to the 18th century, during the times of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Legend has it that he spent hours playing cards at the gambling table and would ask for meat to be served between two slices of bread to keep his fingers clean. This snack was eventually called the sandwich in his honor. At first, it got very popular in Spain and England and eventually, in the 20th century, it became a staple food in the US.
If you’re taking it to work or a picnic, life certainly tastes better between two slices of bread, and putting el Rey del Pulpo octopus in the middle is an even surer bet!
