We’re changing up our menu for October and November. Gone are the TLC and the El Granjero, due to tomatoes and corn respectively rotating out of season. Our new offerings in their place are as follows. A fall-inspired bacon sandwich called ‘The Crandaddy’ garnished with an apple and cranberry chutney, spinach and cheddar cheese. For the vegetarians we’re going with a veggie burger called ‘The Baroness’ made from black beans and roasted vegetables – this cooks on our grill and sits on a toasted whole wheat kaiser with crisp lettuce, roasted garlic mayonnaise, and pickled red onions.
The Oktoberfest Festhalle this year will be at our home turf in the Kitchener Market as a substitute for the usual Frederick and King location. We’re leaving the O-Fest menu selections to the experts, but please do stop on by for lunch sometime while the the ceremonies are on – the building will be licensed for this occasion. Prost!
We had a blast this past weekend at Steel Rails 2016. The event was, for the first time, not on a train, but instead emulated the train feel with a series of rented shipping containers plonked down around a factory, which all contained art of all forms – a food/celebrity pun series of printed art, live performances both acrobatic and acoustic, and a tarot reader were among some of the attractions.
We pumped out 600 sandwiches, most of which contained a delicious batch of braised pork shoulder and a house made barbecue sauce. We’ll likely have these little babies on our menu soon. We’re looking forward to Steel Rails 2017, whether we provide delicious food or just attend the event ourselves.
We are proud to be participating in this year’s first ever Artilicious. We don’t know too much about the event, but it’s taking shape as sort of a food-meets-craft show featuring local food vendors and artisans. We’ll be manning a booth knocking out some bite-size versions of our brown butter squash sandwich. The event is at the Marketplace in the Kitchener Market, our home turf, and takes place on March 10th, world kidney day, which is no coincidence as ticket sales are in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada. Check out the event page here.
It’s been a whirlwind week coming back from the holiday break. Due to deliveries, prep, sign changes, and some unexpected equipment failure, it took us until Friday to complete our menu change for January!
We’re introducing the Tex-Hen, so far to a warm reception – a fajita-like chicken sandwich with black beans, peppers, chipotle and sour cream on toasted whole wheat.
Due to popular demand, and its wonderful appropriateness for the winter months, our Reuben has also found its way back to our menu. It’ll likely be for a while this time – this one is famous for causing an uproar when it leaves the menu. If you haven’t tried one of these, do so, it’s a little different from your traditional Reuben, but in a good way!
We came back from the holidays for Saturday the 2nd, and will be back in full operation this week coming. Our new menu for January – February will be posted and effective this week. We’re looking forward to meeting some customers new and old this year and working on expanding our growing lunchtime delivery business. Wishing you all the best in 2016!
