I am not a fan of animal protein from a can, but I love this sandwich. It converts high-grade Italian tuna into a refreshing and vibrantly briny salad by combining it with pickles, capers, celery, red onion and a bit of chopped egg.

What and how much: Open Faced "Zoe" Tuna Salad ($8)

Where: Tasi Cafe, Rigsby's inexpensive Euro-boutiquey little sister and one of the better breakfast and sandwich outlets in town

Why: Canned tuna fish sandwich so delish it can vanquish nightmarish images of cat-foody losers

Eat it: I am not a fan of animal protein from a can, but I love this sandwich. It converts high-grade Italian tuna into a refreshing and vibrantly briny salad by combining it with pickles, capers, celery, red onion and a bit of chopped egg.

The mix gets generously mounded, open-face-style, onto crispy, excellent sourdough rounds. As another plus, its mayo-free and clean-tasting ingredients won't leave your tongue fatigued or have purring tabbies chasing you down alleys.

Sidekicks: Comes with made-here, thin potato chips, but for a few dollars more, try the inspired green beans brilliantly enlivened by feta cheese, stewed tomatoes and onions.
