What’s on it? Ground beef with onions, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mayo on a hero.
Blue Sky Deli in East Harlem is fondly believed to be the birthplace of this NYC sandwich staple. The creation’s long been attributed to Carlos Soto, who worked at the deli for over 20 years before passing away in 2014. Whether or not it’s the iconic item's official founding location, you’re still not going to find a better example of the delicious, melty masterpiece. A hero oozes melted cheese and ground beef in this classic that may just be the most comforting thing you can eat while on the go.—WG
