Mason Dixon - American Sandwich Bar

Recently, while listening to a podcast they mentioned the Mason-Dixon line and I was curious about what this was as this was also the name of the sandwich I love to visit while in Melbourne. After doing some research, I discovered that the Mason-Dixon Line is the line which divides Pennsylvania and Maryland in the USA. When Pennsylvania abolished slavery, it became the rough dividing line between Southern slave states and Northern free states.

After discovering the history behind the name, it made perfect sense why the owner who was born in Boston, Massachusetts (north of the Mason Dixon Line) and grew up in Georgia (in the Deep South) would call his sandwich shop Mason Dixon. Located at 600 Bourke in the Market Hall Food Court, this sandwich shop serves up American favourites like the MD Reuben and Carolina Pulled Pork using the best Australian and American produce. These classic sandwiches showcase the best flavours from both the north and south of the Mason Dixon border, or you can make your own sandwich masterpiece!

Along with sandwiches, Mason Dixon also offers a number of different flavour bagels, as well as Hoagies, salads, and a number of sides, including onion rings and pretzels. With so many options, there is something delicious on the menu for everybody, but I think I'll stick to my favourite sandwich the Reuben Supreme!
