The French Dip sandwich is a hot roast beef sandwich on a French Roll baguette topped with onions and cheese. When served the entire sandwich is usually dipped in au jus and or with a side dipping container of au jus for dipping.
The sandwich was created in Los Angeles, California in the early 1900’s and like all big sports cities- 2 restaurants lay claim to being the creator – Philippe’s or Cole’s.
I believe that Phillippe’s The Original is the true originator and also the sandwich I enjoyed when I visited California. I did not ask for my French Dip sandwich to be dipped because it becomes a bit of a mess and the sandwich becomes very soggy- so in order to enjoy it and taste the flavors I ask the au jus (the juice) on the side.
I have had this design for a few years now and have been waiting for the right time to release it. I thought the time was right once a certain iconic team was as good as Los Angeles’ most iconic dish- the French Dip!
