AWESOME THING WE ATE #879: Beef And Blue Sandwich With French Onion “Au Jus”
Roast Beef Sandwich with French Onion Soup | $9 | East of Main Cafe | 223 East Georgia
This might just be the best sandwich since the peameal bacon number landed at Big Lou’s in the summer. It was a nice-sized roast beefer with globs of blue cheese soaking up roasted shallot demi and horseradish aioli; all covered by arugula in a perfectly toasted, garlic butter-lathered bun from The Swiss Bakery (check the action shot on Instagram). It was sold as a sandwich with a cup of the soup of the day, which just happened to be French Onion. Once the cheese/bread cap was removed from the soup, the whole thing became a pretty decadent beef dip operation, and there was much rejoicing.
