The Lady Cafe Special:
Fresh mozzarella, sweet plum
tomatoes and hearty basil, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar on
sandwich made me rethink my stance on Mitt Romney. Rich, soulless things can’t
all be evil; they can also be delicious. Oh snap, things just got political.
get back to sandwiches though.
starters, how about we take a minute and analyze the bread situation: A 10-inch
French roll with a crisp, crunchy crust and an ever so slightly chewy inside
fresh from the oven. Even if the sandwich stopped at this point, I’d consider
this a pretty successful lunch endeavor. Thankfully, it kept going.
mozzarella, tomatoes and basil were all definitely fresh ingredients, and the
employee making my sandwich did not skimp on the cheese. This makes him a
wonderful employee, person and soul. This also makes for a great sandwich and
gave me the opportunity to really taste the rich quality of cheese I was getting.
This was not the rubbery mozzarella some places try to pawn off on poor,

picks up from the deli owned by the neighborhood eccentric and tells her

For a 10 inch sub, a little bag of chips and a 591ml soda (Yeah, that’s right,
591ml. I don’t do ounces) it’ll run you about $7.50.The sandwich is definitely pretty filling, so
you can always eat half and easily save the rest for another meal or snack. I
eat the entire sandwich in one sitting because:
no qualms about putting myself into food coma for the rest of the day
wear materials with spandex in them
Bottom Line: Eat this sandwich. If you’re
looking to add something that used to have a face, word on the street is this
sandwich plus prosciutto leaves a meat-eater pretty satisfied.
