This is another post about sandwiches, more precisely about the sandwiches I have every Friday. I am turning this non event that is my Friday lunch into a food chronicle. But I discovered that I look forward to my Friday lunch almost as much as I look forward to the weekend since I discovered that sandwich shop.
So last week I couldn't enjoy my weekly sandwich. But this week I got there on time, early enough in the afternoon so the shop was still open but late enough so I could be hungry. On the menu: smoked salmon baguette, with horseradish sauce (something that has been recommended when I first ordered smoked salmon baguette), salad (lettuce, tomaties, cucumber, red onion), a bit of lemon juice, salt, pepper. On the side: salted cashew nuts. To drink: Coca Cola. So the lunch was a nice mix of predictable and unorthodox.
I will not do a critique, only make a few observations: horseradish sauce is actuallty delicious, who would have thought. After a decade in this country, I am always happily surprised to discover that the food can be so good here. I think a part of me keeps a prejudice against British food just to get it crushed by a new gastronomical discovery. The staff was friendly enough, although the guys I saw were not as outstandingly nice like the first time I went. And what a treat in the end! It has become a Friday necessity.
