After months of testing, the Doctor Popular Sandwich has now officially gone live! The sandwich, a collaboration between myself and Ike from Ike’s Place, appeared on Ike’s menu yesterday and it’s absolutely divine. Only 500 Doctor Populars will be made and each sandwich will come with a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity (silkscreened by me).

Ike’s Place is located at 3506 16th St (@ Sanchez) in San Francisco. The DP has ham, fake bacon, swiss, wasabi, and a special garlic dutch crunch bread. All of Ike’s breads are made per order, so to get the best experience, I recommend you eat it there. A few lucky souls experienced the sandwich as a spontaneously organized SF tweetup yesterday. Be sure to get your limited edition Doctor Popular sandwich before supplies run out!

    ok, why the “fake” bacon?

  2. […] We imagine that being a sandwich collector is much like being a film critic; you don’t have a curio shelf to display your finest works of breaded art (ew), you simply consume the medium and savor — or decry — the merits of the work. Doctor Popular, nerdcore rapper, yo-yo genius and Laughing Squid Guest Blogger has taken the notion of sandwichery, art and cultural sophistication and joined forces with local cult sandwich shop Ike’s Place to create… The World’s Most Collectible Sandwich, “The Doctor Popular.” […]

    Because real bacon has jumped the shark.

    That's my guess.

    i have to say that “fake bacon” has such a cooler ring than “veggie bacon”, i say good on ya for that choice!

    hm. congrats on getting your own sandwich?

    a few things:

    – iirc they serve up morningstar farms fake bacon – not tempeh bacon (aka fakin' bacon).
    – it's not called 'Ike's Place Deli'.

    Thank you for creating a sandwich that tastes so good that I forgot it was Friday after eating one at work.
