lol, Ok folks... i dont know whats wrong with you people, but as is, that is clearly not a sandwich... Sandwich lovers across GaG need to unite and successfully declare this "not a sandwich"
well, clearly you people have no idea what a sandwich is @Ephemera1 got it right with the definition and all, @TheLuckyPizzaDog properly defined it as a pizza, flat base of bread with toppings

By imperial decree, i declare the poll invalid because the fucking russians were messing with it. An open faced sandwich is in fact a pizza and not a sandwich.

  • Yes it can be a sandwich, but only if you fold the bread and make the meat fall between the bread. Because if the meat isn't between two pieces of bread, then it's not a sandwich. Just like if a pizza were closed, it's no longer a pizza, it's a Stromboli instead, or something like that.

    • i didn't ask what it could be... you fold it in half and its still not a sandwich, its half a sandwich

    • Lol, a half sandwich is till a sandwich. If you cut a spider in half, is it no longer a spider? It's still a spider, it's just been cut in half

    • they didn't serve it to you that way... you had to modify a non sandwich into a sandwich... had they served it to you with bread on top and bottom folded in half then id agree,,,, but it didn't come that way so... its not a sandwich

  • It's a halfwich

  • It's like an Oreo cookie without 2 cookie biscuit parts. I don't see how you could call it an Oreo "sandwich cookie" with only half. So while the food item in your pic may well be tasty, it can't be a sandwich!

  • I'm not sure about the actual definition of a sandwich, but if it's not two pieces together with stuff within, it's not a sandwich to me.

  • Bread is used, so I consider it a sandwich.

    A bastardization of a sandwich (like a virgin that sucks dick and gets her pussy eaten), but is still a sandwich by definition.

  • No. A restaurant wouldn't be able to successfully get away with a sandwich named food and it only have 1 piece of bread, instead of two. However, even though not a sandwich, would it be weird to eat like that, maybe. But not a bad idea to do so either. Its not unheard of. Especially when curly up the food, with 1 bread, like a taco

    • @Keifer A sandwich needs two pieces of bread. Would you say that spreading peanut butter on a piece of bread is a sandwich? No. If you put another piece of bread, it becomes a peanut butter sandwich. Other than that, its just bread with spread on it.

  • Definition of sandwich requires it between two things of bread. It's not a sandwich.

  • It's stuff on top of bread, so I'd consider it a sandwich. I'm not sure what else to call it. As far as it being a marketing ploy, as long as it is advertised as an open faced sandwich we can't really complain.

    • It bears no resemblance to pizza in terms of how it is prepared or how the ingredients are set up in relation to each other. I think it's actually much closer to a sandwich than it is to pizza or flatbread. I guess I'm a radical!

    • You're a crazy person... the dark side is strong with this one.

  • I would consider it so because theoretically, I could fold that one piece over.
    Never purchased an open face sandwich before though.

  • No . that's why they call it open faced .
    bc it's not closed or topped with another slice of bread .
    another name for it is Tartine a french word meaning open faced sandwich .

    Tartine is a bakery in San Francisco in the Mission District
    that specializes in this type of culinary incomplete sandwich assemblage,
    that etiquette dictates one has to eat with a knife and fork.

    • @ Izumiblu Re Update . You are absolutely right . Calling it open faced sandwich is dumb .
      i mean how do we know the chef didn't flip it over and then removed the slice of bread .
      Would it be called an open ass sandwich? . Either way no sense . This is an injustice .
      We need a call to Action . Unite . A National Movement that makes sense for America .
      Call your Representatives . Demonstrate . March on Washington . We demand our rights .
      Rename the open faced sandwich NOW .

    • omg... never thought of it that way, i may have just eaten and open assed sandwich. Never Again!!!

  • No, a sandwich is two pieces of bread with a filling in between, and the bread is so that your fingers don't get messy from the filling. So no that isn't a true sandwich 👎🏼
