Sandwich Buddha has a handful of, frankly, DELICIOUS sandwich flavors. The ham and brie was particularly tempting (with fuji apple mustard. Does that NOT sound amazingly delicious?), but since it’s been so hot here a nice cool peppered chicken with asiago sounded like just the ticket.
Besides having peppered chicken and asiago (duh) the sandwich included sprouts and tomatoes. What truly made me want to try this sandwich, though, (besides it sounding nice and cool on a hot day) was the taragon mayonnaise. I love fancily flavored condiments; they’re an easy way to make a boring sandwich more interesting, and it seems to be something that Sandwich Buddha excels at. Taragon mayo? Fuji apple mustard? Sun dried tomato mayo? …Oh man, now my stomach is growling. >.>
The sandwich was great! At first I thought it might be a little small, but by the time I was partially through it, it was clearly going to be enough food (though for those of you with bigger appetites, you might want to snag a bag of chips to go with it). The chicken was “real” chicken – not deli-style – and was thickly cut, but not to the sandwich’s detriment. The asiago was potent and the vegetables fresh and crisp. The taragon mayo was light and distinctive; it was the perfect flavor to compliment the rest of the sandwich. Still, I think it could’ve used a little more taragon; with a heavy cheese flavor like asiago the mayo had to compete fairly hard to be recognized.
After I’d finished the sandwich up, I found that the Sandwich Buddha people had sneaked a treat into my basket – a cookie! A ginger cookie, in fact. And when I say “ginger cookie” I don’t mean it was merely flavored as ginger like a ginger snap. I mean there were honest-to-goodness little chunks of dried ginger in the cookie. There was no chocolate, but darned if it wasn’t still tasty! A nice little meal-ending palate cleanser.
Sandwich Buddha has a nice selection of basic-with-a-distinctive-flair sandwich flavors for a price that I will pay without hesitation. If you’re craving a solid sandwich with a little bit of flair, definitely go to SB. Especially because they love you.
Man, the next time I’m there I think it’s going to be tough deciding on the next sandwich to try…
