Welcome to my ‘hood, Sloco!
I’m not a big sandwich fan, generally. To me, all that bread=impending food coma and afternoon nap. But I like how you roll, Sloco. Here’s why:
This new sandwich shop just opened in a cool little spot previously occupied by 2 successive sandwich joints that did not survive. There’s a danger of this slim space becoming cursed real estate.
Hopefully, Sloco will figure out a formula that works. Chef Jeremy Barlow and his creative team certainly have their food philosophy down cold: local, fresh, simple, fast, affordable. All that remains is this: do people like the sandwiches? I can’t judge, because I do not, as a rule, prefer the sandwich as a food delivery system.
But I’m rooting for you, Sloco. I like your style.
