What’s on the menu at Wicked Sammich, a lunch counter that stuffs sandwiches with fries
The Junction has a new sandwich shop with a Bay State–Portuguese bent. This atypical fusion reflects Wicked Sammich owner Diane Ferreira’s upbringing. “I loved growing up in Fall River, Massachusetts. It’s like 90 per cent Portuguese, so I grew up surrounded by my heritage,” says the ex-stylist, who sold her house to go all in on this venture. Her sandwiches have punny New Englander names, like the Salem Fish Hunt (a tuna melt) and the Thankful Pilgrim (turkey dinner on a bun). A few of the sandwiches are shout-outs to Portuguese favourites like the Bifana Nirvana, grilled pork topped with fries and piri-piri mayo.
