Smokehouse Sandwich Co


Last week I was pleasantly surprised to have a friend recommend a new eatery in Richmond that he said he found on my Facebook page?! I must have been looking around and liked a photo or something but this secret little gem must have fallen off my FoodDar but i honestly can report that WOW am I glad we tried it!
This perfect little eatery is tucked in on the quieter side of Westminster Hwy.
When you enter the restaurant the atmosphere is warm, welcoming and comfortable. The friendly faces are waiting to welcome you and recommended the days special or simply direct you to some of their fantastic tried and true favorites.



The Sandwich Board :


My friend was as interested as I was to try a few different flavors- we opted for the Samson:
A coffee covered and strawberry glazed slow cooked beef brisket- butter lettuce, red bell peppers and house aioli.
The brisket was melt in your mouth goodness and not chewy in any way.

And the Molly:
Hot smoked salmon – butter lettuce, pickled capers, fresh dill and house aioli.
The chef proudly but humbly proclaimed that One of our staff members caught this salmon yesterday from the Fraser river
Let me tell you, you could tell! Fresh, fresh, fresh!
We all know that the first key to a great sandwich is the bread ! The restaurant doesn’t even boast about the perfect bookends for the perfect ingredients but I assure you they have nailed it!

Another pleasant addition to your plate / pan has to be the house made chips in olive oil with a light sea salt.
It was also refreshing not to find any soda pop on the menu, the restaurant serves 2 house made fresh ingredient drinks – Honey, ginger and lemon (which I had and it was perfect) and Strawberry Mint both served hot or cold.
You could also get coffee and of course water.
The sandwiches were excellent. The ingredients were full of deep flavor, fresh ingredients and a perfect finish with the fresh bread.





All in all this is a big recommend in Richmond that I know once your visited you will be back for more.
The prices were reasonable and portions just right.
The owners and staff are friendly, humble and happy to receive you.

Caramelized Peach Tart

Yes please looks excellent!
Thanks Butter Basil & Breadcrumbs.

This has happened to me a couple of times now…when I’ve made a recipe that I really want to share with you.. but then I just cannot come up with a story to go with, or something fun to talk about. This delightful peach tart just happens to be one of those times. I think the last recipe that I could’t come up with anything was my peas and carrots recipe, in which Michael informed me that we don’t do anything fun… and that we suck.

So, I foolishly reached out to him last night once again.. asking him if we’ve done anything in our lives that might pertain to peaches. You know, anything fun, or funny. He informed me that we still suck, and nothing is funny. At the time, he was watching a football game, and I’m assuming it wasn’t going the way that he had hoped.
