Fisher Clark hams it up
Spanish Ham and Cheese
Serrano ham, chorizo, manchego cheese, arugula, pear and onion jam on focaccia bread
Yeah, nine bucks is a lot to spend on a sandwich, so Fisher Clark is a place I only go to occasionally. But the ingredients used here are so good and so fresh that I always find a stop is worth it. Particularly when I order a Spanish Ham and Cheese, whose flavors never disappoint. I'm not sure what I like better -- the incredible, tangy-sweet onion and pear jam, or the ham and chorizo, or the soft, fresh focaccia made Bluepoint Bakery-style.
Although the sandwich is called a ham and cheese, the manchego is subtle (and really good, though I had to pull it out to discern that). Fair warning: Try to take small bites, as the meat is piled high and somewhat tough (but in a good way).
Yes, just try to take small bite - if you can. - Jonathan Shikes
