Besides being a restaurant, this pace is a pretty fancy butcher shop. If you ever wondered where you could find different cuts of Wagyu beef, duck confit, smoked pork chops and duck breast, Mortadella and numerous hard, dry sausages, this is the place for you! In fact, while we were in there a lady behind the counter was sewing up what looked like a huge hog leg, which may have been deboned and stuffed (9th picture).
Maybe I’ll come back another day to take some meat home. Today we were here for lunch. We decided on:
And the food!
First, we had the Boudin Stuffed Egg Rolls. Fantastic! Crispy egg rolls filled with a really meaty boudin and melted pepper jack cheese. After tasting the boudin we did grab two links to take home.
The wedge salad was great. Nice crisp, cold wedge of iceberg lettuce covered with a really chunky blue cheese dressing and all the fixin’s, including some fried onions, which was a nice touch!
We loved the Hot Pastrami Sandwich. Toasty, buttery rye bread and hot tender Pastrami.
I saved the best for last. The Smoked Tri Tip Steak sandwich was one of the most delicious sandwiches I’ve ever had! The Wagyu beef was unbelievably tender, the roll was crusty but nice and soft, and everything else about this sandwich was just awesome! Even if I wasn’t hungry but happened to be back in that neighborhood, I’d probably stop in to eat another one!
Great place. I highly recommend it!
