Z and I had an impromptu lunch date. We sorta had somewhere in mind but ended up strolling past Souper Sarnies and giving it a shot cos’ Z thought the place “looks cute”.
We shared 2 sandwiches, and topped up to add a salad/soup for $3. The sandwiches are all freshly prepared upon your order so there may a slight wait.
We both had the mushroom soup which came piping hot, just the way I like my food. It is different from the usual creamy mushroom soup – it was lighter, earthy and slightly herby (which also translates to: a blander, less creamy mix).
Eggplosion – toasted sourdough with truffle oil egg mayo ($8.90) Sorry for the bleah photo – I tried to separate the slices to feature the egg mayo but the gooey mixture wasn’t too co-operative. The truffle egg mayo was flavourful – pity that it was quite a stingy spread and you don’t taste much of it. Z actually lifted her bread at one point to check if she was missing something. I also found the bread too crisp for my liking and it was a little grating on the palette.
Chicken Avo – toasted panini with chicken mayo and avocado ($9.90)
Again, I found the bread overly toasted. There was more in this sandwich – lightly salted chicken chunks with mayo and avocado but I would definitely have preferred more avocado, much much more.
I somehow feel that this cafe has the potential to do better. It is a cool unpretentious little sandwich joint but I personally think they need to refine the bread toasting bit and be far more generous with their ingredients.
