It might refer to a sandwich that has been cut into four pieces. A sandwich the size of a US quarter would not be much.
Student or Learner
Could anyone tell me how big is the quarter-sized salmon sandwich?
Here is the context:
"She took only a nibble of the quarter-sized salmon sandwich."
I have googled and learned that quarter in the phrase "quarter-sized" usually mean the size of the US$ twenty-five cents (am I correct?)
But in this context, it seems not correct. How can a sandwich be as small as a quarter coin?
So, how big is it in this context?
Thank you very much for your kind help.
Is it possible that the author is speaking metaphorically here to try and say that the sandwich is ridiculously tiny?
It could also mean that the slices of bread have been cut into quarters, but I assume it means small.
