The popular Sausagefest food truck’s new brick and mortar location links patrons to different regions of the United States. The Milwaukee Brat is a Wisconsin favorite, while the sausage and peppers will bring eaters to Lansdowne Street in Boston before a Red Sox game. But we also recommend getting out of the country.

The Longanisa Banh Mi ($8) melds tastes from the Philippines and Vietnam. The snappy, flavorful Filipino sausage is given a Vietnamese banh mi topping treatment—pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber, jalapeno and cilantro mixed with chili paste and mayo—cooling you down and heating you up at the same time. It’s all placed on a homemade hoagie roll for one of the more unique and crave-worthy sandwiches in the city—in a truck or restaurant. –Jason Harris
