I hope this past week finds you sandwiching well. I've been taking quite a bit of time in working on my novel for National Novel Writing Month and haven't had as much time to do sandwiching on my own, but all is well.
Or is it?
The problem is that, even had I actually gotten out to have another sandwich, one recent stop left such a sour taste in my mouth that I thought I would give it a quick mention in regards of what most sandwich places should really try to avoid.
Frozen burger patties. Flat, lifeless burger patties. And even worse, the combination of both.
Having stopped between drinks at The Bruery, I was reminded again that the combination of the two is horrific. If you're going to be an established restaurant, and you're not trying to be McDonalds or other fast food chains, don't use this atrocity of meat (if it really is even meat). If you're trying to be a restaurant that is a local, family owned hot spot, please go the extra mile and make a standout burger. The change in the patty on my melt could have made a huge difference.
As you can see in the photo above, even one slice of the bread is thicker than the patty itself.
While this visit (which will remain nameless, unless you ask) might have disappointed and really only served to act as a buffer for more Bruery beer, it did have one positive outcome in that it reminded me of places to avoid.
Until next week, Readers!
