Bacon orders are all in, curing and cooking this week. The first samples are tasting great!
Our winter menu sees the departure of the more warm-weathered Tom-Yum and the Feta, and heralds the return of the Baroness and the Julius. Respectively, they are a black bean and roasted vegetable burger and a chicken Caesar salad sandwich. Both items are back by popular demand, and even us non-vegetarians love this veggie burger. Winter sandwich selections can be tough to keep in season, but these ones are looking great.
We’ll be open on Saturday, December 23rd and then closed for the following week. We’ll be open again Saturday, December 30th and then re-opening on Wednesday, January 3rd.
Wishing you a great end to the year and an easy ramp into the Holiday season.
In addition to having busy Saturdays over the counter at the Kitchener Market, we’ve been expanding our weekday catering to offices in the region. To that effect, we’ve introduced a couple of better-travelling sandwiches to the menu this time around.
First off, the Reuben is taking a break until fall of 2017 to make room for our new roast beef sandwich – Medium-rare roasted Ontario eye of round is sliced thinly and piled between toasted rye with a crunchy cabbage slaw and a tangy horseradish mayonnaise we make in-house. We’re really happy with the results and think you’ll notice a difference in quality from your typical roast beef sandwich.
Our barbecue chicken sandwich was inspired by southern ingredients, and our green tomato harvest for the year. We made a bright relish from the unripe tomatoes, apples, and bell peppers – of which we have run out. Time for a change of the chicken guard! Popular demand has brought back the Tom-Yum chicken salad sandwich – inspired by the Thai soup of the same name, we make a savoury chicken salad from roasted whole chickens with lemongrass, galangal, chili, bell pepper, and celery.
We’re getting ready for a busy ramp into the holiday season this year. Some significant Saturdays over the holidays are causing us to be open for business on December 24th and December 31st. We will be taking a short break between Christmas and the New Year, closing for the week but coming in on Friday the 30th to prep up for Saturday.
Our December/January menu is up and running – we’re bringing back a staple in the Brown Butter Squash. We’re starting to feel like this one belongs on our menu every winter/spring. We do get told this when we happen to not have it on the menu! Also coming onto the menu is a Southern-style barbecue chicken sandwich garnished with fried peppers and onions and inspired by a larger than ever harvest of green tomatoes this year which feature here as a bright relish, tying it all together.
