Have you ever had a "Sigmund Freud Sandwich"

     Recently I was driving by the Three Brothers Italian Restaurant on Snowden River Parkway and it brought back memories of the original tenant in this space--Roy's Place Two.  This restaurant was the second one opened by Roy Passin after his successful restaurant in Gaithersburg.   The menu at this place had over 200 different sandwiches with some of the most unusual ingredients and names.  Names like "the Raunchy Raymond," "Lassie's Revenge" and "The Song of Love."   Ingredients combined meats, cheeses, toppings and sauces in some of the most original ways.  It often took 15 to 20 minutes to finally make a decision.  Unfortunately the restaurant only lasted for a few years and we lost one of the most original restaurant in Columbia.  I was wondering if the restaurant was still open in Gaithersburg and was disappointed to see that it also closed last year.  Trust me Potbelly's and Jimmy John's are nothing compared to Roy's Place.

    My favorite sandwich at Roy's Place Two was the Sigmund Freud.  I combined fried oysters, swiss cheese, ham and coleslaw on a bun.  With no other option I decided to try to make one of these sandwiches myself.  The picture above isn't that good but it tasted great!

I have great memories of going to Roy's with my dad. Too bad about the closing.
