There’s a lot of sandwich talk going on around town lately. Meat and Bread, The Dirty Apron and newest on the scene Big Lou’s Butcher Shop. Ben has had Big Lou’s on the brain for the last few weeks, so it didn’t surprise me when I joined him for lunch that he would suggest sandwiches. Like the others, it’s on the fringe of the Downtown Eastside, although Lou’s is on the east side of the DES. The good thing about the location, is that street parking’s plentiful and cheap!
Inside it’s a full-on butcher shop, with locally sourced meats. I will definitely go back to visit the butcher.
But today it was all about the sandwiches. I was curious about the Turducken sandwich, but then something taped onto the wonderful old wooden cash register caught my eye.
