Tang's Donuts and Sandwiches-Closed
4341 W. Sunset Blvd.
I have eaten at three; Vince's Market, Lanza Brothers Market, and Sandwich Island, of five sandwich shops that were profiled in the LA Weekly. I know they listed six places, but I will never go to that overpriced soda shop ever again.
Tang's Donuts is located a couple doors from Garage Pizza, which still serves up great pizza!! Unless you're a Cal State Long Beach graduate, you can tell that Tang's is a donut store that added sandwiches to the menu. They are open late on Friday and Saturday and draws in the after party crowds.
Turkey and swiss cheese, with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes on a grilled roll, $4.62. I liked the toasted roll., which was nice and chewy. The turkey is standard, nothing to write home about, the veggies are fresh. This sandwich won't overwhelm you or make you get into your car and drive out of your way to Tang's. But, if you're in the area, this is much better than any chain sandwich shop!
Service is good. The lady who took my order and made my sandwich was very nice and friendly.
Like I said before, Tang's is a good solid sandwich. I wouldn't have a problem going back, but I'm not making a special trip to get a sandwich.
