**WARNING** PORKAGRAPHY EXPLOSION **WARNING**
I must admit, that I’m probably the last foodie/blogger in Melbourne that has yet to blog/taste the astounding sandwiches at EARL Canteen…
Nor was the fact that I knew exactly where EARL Canteen was, I’d walked pass it countless of times to and fro my old work place…
Anyway, back to my sandwich… it was one of the most expensive sandwiches I’ve ever paid for $13.50… however, I was not disappointed at all… and there is an explanation as to why EARL charges the way it does.
Served with Apple, Cabbage and a Fennel coleslaw with wilted silverbeet in a freshly baked baguette…
Absolutely porked out at the end of my meal…
No wonder EARL has got the Melbourne Foodie community abuzz, amazed and excited…!
Would I return? I might… to try the other sandwiches on their menu…especially their Duck Confit ($16)…
Often? No, it’s a tad too expensive for a daily fare.
But it is a definite well worth splurge to have every now and then.
