In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Miura Waffle Milk Bar in Vancouver is doing some very interesting things to waffles. The shop sells a variety of savory and sweet waffle "sandos" derived from "sandoitchi," a Japanese word for sandwich.
Fresh waffles are made from scratch, then topped with everything from soy-cured salmon to housemade pastry cream (but not together, obviously).
The Garlic Chicken Waffle Sando ($7.49) is stuffed with juicy garlic-spiked chicken, red miso, cabbage slaw, and a drizzle of mayo. But the meat isn't sandwiched between the two waffles as you might expect; it's cooked directly into the batter. The waffles are crisp and fluffy, but not too heavy. Who knew waffles could be so versatile?
The first sando was such a success that I made a second trip to the counter for a Tiramisu Sando ($4.49), half of which is pictured above. The sweet (and messy) sando is made with cream cheese custard cream, chocolate sauce, and housemade coffee jelly. If tiramisu and a Boston creme doughnut had a lovechild, this would be it.
