Cape Town’s signature sandwich, served up MK style. Say what now? Gatsbys are bread rolls split lengthways, filled with hot chips and meat, chicken or seafood, and covered with trimmings and sauce. The sandwich received its name because it’s as decadent as the wealthy characters in F Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel (besides pickled fish, you can cram it full of Viennas, polony, masala steak or just about anything else you fancy). But that’s where the similarities end. Greasy, satisfying and now an SA cultural icon, this meal in a roll certainly gets a green light from us.
