It’s been awhile since I’ve wandered around the law court area. But there’s been a great addition to the area for a delicious sandwich — the kind on a nice crusty baguette instead of the sliced loaf bread, score!
The place is comfortable and cute, with white walls, dimmed lighting, colourful chairs, and a large photo print of Lego men on canvas. The kind of place where you won’t make a fool of yourself trying to pronounce ridiculous item names and could probably impress your friends by knowing that such a place exists downtown.
The menu is small and straightforward. Couple of different types of sandwiches, handful of sides to pick from, and drinks, including beer and wine on tap!
Each of their sandwiches comes with the same toppings which include pickled jalapenos, garlic sauce, romaine, cilantro, and caramelized onions. On that particular day, we tried both the pork and the turkey sausage, with a side of potato chips.
The pork sandwich came in a shredded form and a lot of it too. It was tender, juicy, and quite spicy from both the pork and pickled jalapenos, so be sure that you order a drink or you won’t enjoy the sandwich much. It’s spicy enough to make you want to keep eating it, but not spicy enough to make everything taste like nothing. The caramelized onions definitely helped by adding some sweetness. A great bite, both in taste and texture.
Look, I’m a big turkey fan…but I was extremely skeptical to get the turkey sausage sandwich because I was worried it was going to be dry (one of the biggest crimes in sandwiches and burgers really). I was pretty wrong, because there was a mix of chorizo in there to help make it a bit more juicy. The sausage came pre-sliced and the taste wasn’t as dominant as the pork, but at a ratio where you could taste the garlic sauce and onions. Yumm.
We had chips too, but they just tasted like some unsalted kettle chips — pretty good side seeing as those sandwiches were very filling.
All in all, great little trip. I’ll definitely recommend them and be back for their other sandwiches.
