This week, I found a sandwich shop that was so good I went to twice in a short period.
Karved, which is located at 3957 S. Maryland Parkway, takes eating sandwiches to a whole new level. Karved slow-cooks all of its rotisserie meats, and as the name implies, they carve those meats and make some of the best sandwiches in Las Vegas.
The meats that they slow cook are chicken, Black Angus beef Tri-Tip, porchetta, pork and turkey.
On my first visit, I went with the Tri-Tip Sandwich served with a garlic sauce, onion marmalade, arugula on a French baguette. The Tri-Tip basically melts in your mouth.
But as I have said numerous times, you can ruin a good sandwich with bad bread. The French Baguette rolls that they use are amazing. They made a good sandwich a great sandwich.
The Tri-Tip Sandwich is $12.50, but the sandwich is huge and so good making it worth the price.
My buddy had the porchetta sandwich which was slow cooked pork loin wrapped in a crispy pork belly served with a lemon sauce and arugula on a French Baguette. He couldn’t stop talking about how good it was.
Looking back, we should have just cut our sandwiches in half and swapped.
On my second visit I brought a different friend with me and he ordered the French Dip. They use the Tri-Tip roasted and served on the French Baguette with Au Jus. He was very pleased with his choice.
I went with the Southwestern Chicken that comes with fried jalapenos, fried onions and a tangy southwestern sauce. Full disclosure: I ordered it without the jalapenos.
This was a very flavorful sandwich with the mix of chicken, onion rings and the Southwest sauce. The Southwestern Chicken sandwich was $10.95 and again the portion is huge.
If you are not feeling like a sandwich, you can order a plate instead. All Plates come with a gourmet rotisserie meat served with two sides, rice, pita and Karved sauce. Prices on the plates range from $11 to $15.50 for a two-meat combo.
For those looking for a little healthier choice you can add any of the slow-cooked meats to a salad as well.
The meats that I had were excellent and I will be trying them all as I’m on the East Side of town once a week for business and this is definitely now one of my go-to spots for lunch. I give Karved a rating of 3.75 Forks.
