Fort Worth Food Bracket Play-in Game: King Tut vs. East Hampton Sandwich Company

The king of Egyptian food in Fort Worth goes up against a damn good sandwich.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

What better way to start a bracket about the best food venues in Fort Worth than with two less-known delicious eateries? King Tut and East Hampton Sandwich company are playing for the right to face off against No. 6 Brewed in the Deli/Diner/Misc. Region of the tournament.

Bottom Half DDM Food Bracket

King Tut

Style: Egyptian

Location: 1512 Magnolia Avenue

Price Range: ~$13-$22

King Tut offers a variety of Egyptian foods, including several meat Kabobs and Shawarma. Here's a positive review from Yelp:

Feeling adventurous? Haven't tried Egyptian cuisine before? Do yourself a favor then and give King Tut a try. As of yet, this place cooks up the best Middle Eastern food I've had so far in Fort Worth. Fairly priced, too. The atmosphere isn't exactly the most impressive I've ever seen (it's filled with some cheesy ancient Egyptian decorations), but that's part of it's hole-in-the-wall charm. Besides, who cares? The food makes up for it all, trust me.

East Hampton Sandwich Company

Style: Sandwiches

Location: 11065 S University Drive

Price Range: ~$11-$25

Some of the most unique sandwiches you'll ever find. I absolutely obliterated a Turkey, Bacon and Avocado sandwich last time I ate there. Here's a positive Yelp review:

I love this place!!! Everything about it is fantastic! The food, the service, and the atmosphere all deserve 5 stars! I ordered the Lobster Roll and the Fried Chicken Sandwich, two delicious sandwiches. If you're looking for something a little on the heavy side, I'd recommend the Fried Chicken one. The Lobster Roll is more for those light feeling seafood loving eaters out there. I'm looking forward to coming back and trying out other sandwiches!!!

Time to vote! Who deserves to move on?
