I love sandwiches. Sometimes when I don’t feel so awesome, eating a really yummy sandwich could cheer me up. This week we finally made it to the new Be ‘wiched Cafe in Surrey.
The cafe specializes in warm sandwiches. We were there for lunch, and it was a bit hard to hold ourselves back from ordering too much because there were a lot of really promising sounding sandwiches.
For my lunch I ordered the Cubano sandwich with a side of Tomato Soup. Everything was made to order. The Cubano sandwich had roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese and pickles with ciabatta bread. The sandwich was pressed to give the ciabatta bread a really nice crunch. The sandwich was really good. I loved every bite of it. I could taste the pork, the ham, and the pickles individually, and all together they made a great combination.
I don’t really know what authentic Cuban sandwiches taste like, but I have added this one to my favorite sandwiches list.
We also tried the Monte Cristo and Pulled Pork sandwich.
The Monte Cristo sandwich had turkey, ham, swiss cheese and raspberry dijon spread. You can definitely taste the sweetness from the raspberry dijon. It was also pretty good with the combination of sweet and salty, but I just found it to be a tad bit too sweet.
The Pulled Pork sandwich was a monster. It was a really big sandwich. While the pulled pork itself was good, the bread they used with the pork wasn’t the greatest combo.
We also tried their Beef Enchilada. It came with 2 rolls of beef filled tortillas. I might be really used to super saucy enchiladas, it looked a bit dry to be an enchilada with only melted cheese on top of the tortillas. The beef filling was really flavorful and moist. It was also spicy. It was not an enchilada I’m used to, but it was a good spin of their own version.
The owners were really nice. We were greeted right away. The owner explained that they do all everything in house except a couple hams.
They gave us some Pina Coconut Bars on the house. Pinapple and COCONUT Bars? It’s like they knew me! I love coconut. It was really really yummy, not too overly sweet. It tasted home-made and fresh. I loved it.
Finally, I get to have an amazing warm sandwich without having to travel to downtown Vancouver. It’s a great spot for Surrey peeps. Check out the Cubano, you won’t be disappointed.
