Nanzaro wanted to try the burgers in Smokehouse Sandwich Co. on Westminster Highway but it was not so convenient to go by himself using public transport. So, I brought him there on a weekday while he was on a school break.
The parking lot is not big but there is plenty of street parking on the side road.
This is a self serving restaurant. The menu is written on a big black board and you order and pay at the counter. They will call your name when your order is ready. Cutleries and sauces are available at a small table near the counter.
Nanzaro ordered the Wilbur which is Cumin Spiced Pulled Pork with Coleslaw for $8.99. There is an option for double meat for $12.99. It was quite messy eating this as juices were dripping from it. Nanzaro likes his sandwich.
I asked the server for recommendation of the most popular sandwich and he recommended Samson. Samson is Coffee Crusted Strawberry Glazed Beef Brisket with butter Leaf Lettuce, Red Bell Peppers and Aioli. The size of the burger is big for me. It was good though.
We also ordered a serving of Crisp which is thin cut potatoes fried in Olive oil for $2.00 to share. This is good because it was not salted as we can’t detect any saltiness. They are light and crispy.
Nanzaro had the cold Honey, Ginger and Lemon Cooler for $2.99 while I had Organic Coffee for $1.99.
We find the Honey, Ginger and Lemon Cooler a bit too gritty as there are at least two tablespoons full of grated fresh ginger in it. I like the flavour but not the bits of ginger when I drink it. It will be perfect if they strain it before serving.
The bill came to $26.20 and credit card is accepted here.
