There’s just something about a sandwich.(Or sando as I annoyingly refer to them.)
Any kind really.
They’re just so good and scream lunchtime to me.
Since I’ve dropped the ball on bringing my lunches this week (I’ve already swore up and down to myself that next week will not be a repeat) I went over to my favorite lunchspot in in the Financial District.
I’m not joking when I say I used to eat there 5x/week alternating between the sandwich bar, the salad bar and the hot bar.
In an effort to save money (and after a freak-food poisoning attack from a restaurant in early February – not Focaccia, the place it happened from I will never, ever return to) I stopped spending upwards of $40 a week at Focaccia.
Today I just couldn’t stay away.
I was craving a hot, melted-cheese sandwich.
I navigated through the crowds (regardless of if you go at 11am, 2pm, or anytime in between it’s crowded. And it’s worth it), waiting behind 27 people in line and ordered one of my favorite sandwiches of all time.
- 1/2 Wheat Focaccia Roll
- Over Roasted Turkey
- Smoked Gouda Cheese (all cheeses should be smoked in my opinion!)
- Balsamic Vinegar on the bread
Grilled in the oven
- Mixed Greens
Everything is always so fresh, they have tons of sandwich (and salad!) toppings, and I have never not been completely satisfied with my meal there. They also have huge, gooey chocolate chip cookies and the best breakfast sandwich in the Financial District (and I stand by it).
Note: I’m still convinced the best breakfast sandwiches ever come from our kitchen, so notice the Financial District boundary there.
On the side my daily bag of BBQ Pop Chips was also consumed… but I’m sure you knew that already. 😉
If you ever need a quick, delicious sandwich, salad or hot meal, check this place out… it’s definitely a favorite of most people so be prepared for a wait… but I promise it’ll be worth it! 🙂
What’s YOUR favorite type of sandwich?
I love anyyy sandwich with pesto, and more recently balsamic! Prosciutto, mozzarella, pesto, red onion and balsamic cannot be beat in my opinion. But a PB&J or chicken/pesto/cheese panini comes pretty darn close!
