Meat & Bread. Just two simple words, but so great together don’t you think?
This place was at the top of my list to try for quite awhile but their location was just a bit too far to make it there and back during my lunch hour. So down the list it went.
But a few weeks ago I was out and about and noticed a sign up in an empty storefront around the corner from my office. It read, “Opening Soon – Meat & Bread“. Oh yeah baby! Back at the top of my list.
So finally the other week I was able to head over for my lunch hour to finally see what the buzz was about. I timed it right and even though there was a line when we got there it moved quickly and efficiently.
They have a very simple menu. Four sandwiches only, two sides and a few beverages. That’s it. All sandwiches are $8, except the veggie which is $7. Choices include; porchetta, corned beef, the daily special and a weekly changing vegetarian special.
Wait what? Vegetarian Special? Isn’t that an oxymoron in a place that is called Meat & Bread? But hey I guess they want to be inclusive.
Me, I went straight for the porchetta. Go big or go home, right?
While overall it was a great lunch, unfortunately, the sandwich is really really salty! I knew it would be salty, however I wasn’t expecting that big of a punch. It overwhelmed my mouth and distracted me from the the other great things about the sandwich. I was pounding back the water for the rest of the afternoon.
Verdict? The sandwich was good, but not stellar. And the price point of $8 is a little high. However, I will go back and try some of their other sandwiches and hopefully I will find something to write home about.
