If you happen to be traveling in San Diego anytime soon, you can stop by one of the two Bite of Boston Submarines locations run by former area residents Bob and Hope (Aschenbrand) Major. Bob is a Burlington native while Hope formerly lived on Hart Road with her family in Lynnfield and attended school in town before moving to Stoneham in the 10th grade.
While this eatery is on the other side of the continent, its local influences are all over the menu. The Lynnfield sandwich is roast beef, bacon, melted cheddar, onions, and bbq sauce. The Burlington’s Best sandwich is smoked turkey, bacon, melted cheddar cheese and bbq sauce.
There are also “Northender,” “Boston Big-Timer,” “Cambridge Wrap,” and “Big Dig” sandwiches on the menu, and even Fenway Franks, Ipswich fried clams, Boston baked beans, a “Boston Garden Salad” and “Wicked Awesome Chowda.” According to the website, all of the sandwich bread is even shipped across the country from Piantedosi Bakery in Malden.
For a further taste of home, the eatery’s website even features a “Bawstin Knowledge” section featuring tips on pronouncing local places and terms.
