Nothing satisfies the hunger I feel in the middle of the day better than a nice lunch. Since I work in downtown Vancouver, there’s a lot of good choices for lunch.
This particular day, a work colleague and myself headed down to the Acme Cafe on Hastings Street as we had enjoyed their lunch before. They usually have a special deal of a featured sandwich and a small dessert. On this occasion neither tickled my fancy, so I browsed the menu – my eyes stopped when they saw the words “Meat Loaf Sandwich” - meat loaf, BBQ sauce, grainy dijon mayo, Swiss cheese, caramelized onions and arugula on an onion kaiser.
I thought this sounded tasty and it turned out to be even more delicious than I was anticipating. I barely said a word to my lunch companion as my taste buds were enthralled by this simple sandwich. Tender, juicy, flavourful.
