2go--New sandwich shop in Culver City
This little sandwich shop in a strip mall on Overland had a "COMING SOON" sign in the window for months, so hubby and I wondered if they were ever actually going to open. A few weeks or so ago, we saw with surprise that they had. Not seeing any posts about it on these boards, DH husband suggested I try it and "take one for the team."
I did. But I don't think I did anyone any favors.
Sharing the strip mall with a liquor store and a comic book shop, I didn't have high expectations, but I thought if it was decent, it would be a nice sandwich option addition to the neighborhood (we've tried Joyce's--and don't feel any need to return). At 12:30, I expected there to be at least someone else there in the middle of lunch time, but I was the sole customer. The proprietress was very sweet (maybe relieved to see someone walk in?), but as I looked over the menu (actually several paper signs taped to the front of the counter), nothing really appealed to me. Not wanting to just walk out, though, I ordered a "2go sandwich," consisting of ham, turkey and bacon. Other offerings were several generic sandwiches (tuna salad, turkey, etc.), fish and chips, chicken strips, hamburgers, hot dogs, salads and wings (they also serve a few breakfast items, mostly eggs). As I was waiting for my sandwich, I heard the distinct sound of the deep fryer. Oh, I thought, maybe she's making something for someone else at the same time, but unless the other person was invisible, I'm pretty sure that was the sound of bacon cooking for my sandwich, especially since the sandwich felt warm when she handed it to me.
I brought it home, and though it wasn't bad, it was very uninspired: slices of ham, turkey and cheese, mustard and mayo, italian dressing, romaine lettuce, and very anemic tomatoes. The bread was fine, fresh and chewy, but again, not exciting. I feel sort of bad because I wanted to like it, but with other sandwich chains and places like Famima around offering a wider variety of items, I don't know how this little shop is going to stick around.
So, in case anyone was wondering, now you know...
I went the other day too and I am on the fence about it. You are right the Decor has alot to be desired. but I had someting there I liked which was the Fish Sandwich. They took their breaded fish and put it into their sub roll with Lettuce tomato onion and Tartar. I haven't been back to try anything else yet But I might soon.
