Another day came, and my stomach sang a song for daily bread. Under this kind of circumstances, I crave for a big bowl of spring green salad together with something spicy. well……Sip came into my mind. This deli/coffee shop always take my attention due to their coffee mug shape signage with sip on it. Deep relationship has been built up with my morning habit and this onomatopoetic word. That to say, this place has been unfortunate for this past years bumping into me in wrong time.
I stared up to a ceiling mounted menu board for a minute (my goddess gracious..my neck hurt). Hot & Spicy, Hot & Spicy, hot and spicy….damnit. but tah-dah~~~ They had Shiracha sauce! free on a side (1000 x +point!) Their eleven different mixed meat and veggie panini sandwiches were already made and displayed waiting to get some pretty grill mark (hmmm..let me think about that situation = ‘₪’). I ordred lunch special by listing turkey, artichoke parmesan and baby spinach where I could have just by saying #2! -_-;;; The FOOD prepared in prompt manner of within 3 minutes (₪ helped).
First of all, I would like to inform you that they claim “featuring Boar’s Head Premium Meats and Cheeses, served on house bread, grilled to order”
I guess many deli stores in the downtown in love with Boar’s Head brand. They are good, and I have deep history with the brand since living in GA. Artichoke mixed with parmesan cheese tastes like what it is supposed to be. As an whole, there is nothing to say bad actually; however, it sin’t flattering when the taste is compatible to Subway’s -a bit of exaggeration here..Subway’s has some sort of fridge-burn taste sometime. Because it costs $ 8.63 which includes a half foot sandwich, a cup of side salad and drink. Hoagie “wana-be” panini is a bit dried and dense for my preference. Turkey and artichoke combo is well-balance of taste if I had a package of pepper which they didn’t have. Mostly roman, a bit of spring green and shredded carrot is A SALAD. I stuffed that in my sandwich to get some extra moisture (is this happening because of ₪ ?). Or am I just a ciabatta (The Station) woman? I love their very minimal packaging-everything in a box, but there is feeling of things running around inside..maybe a layer of paper around sandwich would be pleasant. Another minuscular disappointment comes from not getting a fork and napkin……..(….silence). The experience leaves me something there is un-fresh about it (probably because of ₪ … who knows the scene behind the counter). I can go back and don’t really mind. They definitely receive a huge point having Shiracha sauce (nya nya nya nya). I still love the station – shiracha, ciabatta, house sauces and salad for same price.
