For gas-station fare, it’s tough to beat the chivito at Fast Gourmet, the fancy sandwich shop at Lowest Best Price Gas on 14th Street NW. The cost of regular unleaded now exceeds $4 per gallon, but the South American-style grinder, which earned City Paper‘s pick for “Best Uruguayan Sandwich” in 2011, is still a flat $13 (plus tax). It’s worth the three-gallon-plus price tag. What makes it so tasty? Well, a lot of things.
For a diagrammed peek under the savory sammy’s bready hood, head over to WCP for the full breakdown.
