You all know I’m not a big fan of sandwiches (or salads) because they make me hungry an hour or two later. In order to get satisfied, I’d have to eat a couple or have them as side items. If I were counting calories, that would be really bad. Anyways. I stopped by Victory one night after school. My class ends at 9:30 and finding a late night spot to eat a good meal has been a life long mission. Miso Izakaya, H+F, Steak&Shake (don’t hate), bars, have been favorite spots, as well as Chinese joints that are open past midnight on Cheshire Bridge and BuHi. I’m now adding Victory to that list.
These aren’t your normal, ho-hum deli sandwiches. They’re fancier. The bread is from Bakeshop. The fillings are from top-notch ingredients. They’re smallish so I usually have to eat 3. You’ll probably get full with two but one is definitely not enough. The $4 price tag might be steep on paper but definitely worth every penny once you see it live and in person. Like I said, the fillings and the bread are what make these sandwiches stand out.
Three of my favorites. The Castro with roast pork, ham, fontina cheese, & yellow mustard is a fun take on the Cuban sandwich. The pork is tender and very flavorful. Of course, love the pressed bread. Excellent.
Beast On Yeast. The pot roast with horseradish crème will remind you of roast beef. Very good.
Can’t remember what this is called. Ham and pimiento cheese. The pimiento cheese is pretty good.
There’s a huge wall where they project movies and my best friend/eating buddy swears by their Jack Daniel’s slush. I’m not a drinker so I’ll leave that all up to you. I just like that it’s cozy enough to whip up my laptop and hang out by the big glass walls.
