eat all the smith & deli sandwiches – #3, truffle shuffle

Day 3.

The truffle shuffle is a ham and cheese toastie made extra special by the addition of truffle oil.

The bread was a beautiful sourdough multigrain, the house made mozzarella cheese was delicious and pleasingly melty, but I wasn’t so keen on the seitan based ham. That’s me, I am not thrilled by the taste of gluten flour in seitan. It needs to be well spiced and flavoured and there just wasn’t quite enough hammy vibe there to overpower the flavour of the flour. This is a minor quibble.  I am being picky, but given the fabulousness of some of the other mock meats at Smith & Deli, the ham didn’t quite measure up for me.

It was still a damn good sandwich. Each bite packed a burst of truffle flavour which really made the sandwich special. But to be honest, I’d probably enjoy this more without the ham.

I ate it as I walked along Moor St in the winter sunshine to see an exhibition at the museum.

  • Very important question… How many sandwiches could one person fit in for lunch and then still have room for dinner later?
    Asking for a friend… 😉

      • Hmm… I think this is a challenge that needs to be explored further in October. By my friend…
        Fine, there is no friend, it is me. I am going to eat until I cry. 😉

        • I totally agree with Rosalie, a sandwich for lunch will likely mean you don’t eat dinner! I want to try this sandwich but have my heart set on the meatball Maury sandwich next. My sister wants to go one day so I’ll have to insist she gets another sandwich I haven’t tried, that way we go halvies and I get to try two new sandwiches 😉
