There's something undeniably satisfying about a really good turkey sandwich, and the Turkey ($8.50) at Blue Barn Gourmet is exactly that. Simple and classic, the combination of juicy roasted turkey breast with goat cheese, pesto aioli, a pile of crisp watercress, and sun-dried tomatoes tastes fresh with a hint of richness.
Those tomatoes must be freshly dried—juice burst out in every bite—and the combination of aioli and goat cheese was straight-up addictive. All of these elements would have made for a good sandwich, but the ciabatta roll with its crackly, floury exterior made it excellent.
