The Earl of Sandwich conveniently located in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino offers great sandwiches, salads, and wraps including special breakfast items. Luckily, you can enjoy their food seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Their reasonably priced menu has recently been expanded to include eight new hand tossed salads, seven new handcrafted wraps, and new soups and hot sandwiches.
I accepted an invitation to check out the food at the Planet Hollywood location. My husband chowed down on several sandwiches, while I sampled some of their salads and a few wraps. The Original 1762 is their signature sandwich ($6.49). It is made from freshly roasted beef, sharp cheddar and creamy horse radish sauce. This combination along with the baking process produces a unique sandwich. The soft texture of the freshly baked bread is a plus.
The Earl of Sandwich claims that it sells "the world’s greatest hot sandwich". I was pleasantly surprised to learn that each sandwich is individually baked and made to order on unique artisan bread.
Sandwiches are made by hand. As the bread bakes, the sandwiches get piping hot. They are finished off with freshly prepared toppings and produce. The entire process takes only four minutes.
The Earl’s Club sandwich ($6.49) contains turkey, bacon, swiss cheese, sauce and lettuce and tomato. Quite a winning combination. I particularly enjoyed the chicken bacon avocado wrap ($6.99) which also includes tomato, cucumber and balsamic vinaigrette in a hand rolled wrap.
Nine different salads are on the menu. I sampled and enjoyed the Baja Chicken ($6.99) and the Berry, Chicken, Almond ($6.99) Salads. Baja chicken is based on Romaine and contains cheddar cheese, cilantro, avocado, tomato, roasted corn, black beans and tortilla chips. Berry, Chicken, and Almond is based on spinach and contains fresh strawberries,fresh blue berries, and almonds.
The menu includes a variety of Artisan Soups and desserts such as chocolate cookies. It contains a variety of healthy, meat-free, and gluten free items.
The location and hours of the shop are virtually perfect. Remember, it is open 24 hours and is located adjacent to Planet Hollywood’s Race and Sports Book and The Miracle Mile Shops. Food pricing is economical, especially given its high quality and the restaurant’s location. The most expensive item on the extensive menu is only $6.99.
Off the subject of the foot but interesting: The Earl of Sandwich was founded in 2003 by Robert Earl in partnership with John Edward Hollister Montagu. Montagu is actually the 11th Earl of Sandwich and is a direct descendant of John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich who is credited with inventing the sandwich in 1762.
The founder’s vision was to create a fast casual sandwich brand known for its high quality and value. Since opening at The Disney Marketplace in 2004, the company has grown to 26 locations including those under construction. They seem to have reached their goal.
If you are on The Strip and looking for freshly made sandwiches, wraps, or salads in a casual friendly atmosphere late night, early morning, or any time then visit Earl Of Sandwich at Planet Hollywood. They also have a location at The Palms Resort and Casino. For further information contact The Earl of Sandwich.
