The Maine Dish
Nosh’s Jason Loring: “I hate wraps. What’s wrong with sandwiches?”
Erin: So I hear you’ve got a beef with wraps. What’s up with that?
Jason: Yea! Our menu says “Wrap Free Since 2010.” I just hate wraps. Really tasteless flour tortillas. The fact that people think they are healthier than bread. Really it’s a purist thing.
Jason: What’s wrong with sandwiches? Bread doesn’t work? It’s too hard to lift a sandwich to your mouth? People are lazy. Sandwiches have so much history–royal history to boot. I know wraps are still around but to me they’re a fad. They are barely hanging on. They have now been replaced by the disgustingly fake flat breads of Dunkin’ Donuts etc.
Erin: So I’m assuming you’re a hard taco guy…or are tortillas okay when they’re wrapped around seasoned ground up animal and shredded cheese?
Jason: No. I understand that flour tortillas are a part of ethnic cuisines. And burritos are American as apple pie. I love soft tacos. It’s the replacement of the wrap for bread in the 90′s. Just don’t like ‘em.
Erin: So if I brought you a nice (dried out around the edges) sun-dried tomato wrap filled with deli-sliced turkey, finely shredded iceburg lettuce and Miracle Whip, how would you seek revenge on me?
Jason: I think you know what I’d do with it. Plus you just said “Miracle Whip” so there’s a chance I might never speak to you again.
Erin: Ah…I knew from the moment we met that we’d be friends. But I didn’t know we’d discover our condiment soul mate connection. Good to know.
