Except for burgers, I have never been fascinated with a sandwich. I have always accepted the notion that I am not a sandwich person. I’d rather be the one who prepare my own sandwich and not get from a store or order it from some fancy restaurant. Because of this, I have always considered that for me to be fascinated on a sandwich served in a diner or a cafe, such must really be very good.
The supposition of me not being a non-burger sandwich person has however been changed. There has been one sandwich that has finally mesmerized my sense of taste. It is the Steak & Cheese Panini Sandwich served in Café Adriatico Express.
If my restless cravings and squirmish budget permits, I would at times order a Steak Sandwich in Café Adriatico at their Malate branch. But the one they served in their new outlet located at the ground level of The Block in SM North Edsa, Quezon City were further improved. They added loads of mozzarella cheese and used a tasty kind of Panini bread instead of the usual white bread. Moreover the new sandwich version is served with potato fries and pickled red onions, the latter is actually a genius add-on because it is great palate equalizer for the very savory flavor of the sandwich filling.
The appetizing presentation, the perfect portioning and the toothsome taste were right on target. My taste buds were not jumping for joy, they were instead doing two and a half back-somersaults with two and a half twist on a ten meter platform dive! This sandwich is definitely very delicious!
