Sandwiches and beer, two of my favourite things!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Publishing/writing/career stuff|Recipes and Food

I am fairly certain that sandwiches are The Perfect Food.

My latest piece for SavvyMom is about a neat little sandwich place in Centretown called Pressed. It was introduced to me by my friend Vicky, who hosted a tweet up there awhile back. I’m thankful for that yummy introduction, because I might not have otherwise made the trek out there. But now I realize that was just plain silly.

See the chips there? Oh man, were they ever good.

A surprise bonus for me: I like pickled green beans! Each sandwich plate was decorated with a healthy beany specimen that was tangy with a bit of a kick. Who knew?

I quite agree you cant beat a club sandwich! just think what it would have been called if someone else had the bright idea to stick 2 pieces of bread round their beef to stop getting grease on their fingers probably a Tomkins or cutts . Having said that I had some quite competitive buttered crumpets this week…………………

I love this place too! You don’t know how happy I was when it opened up right between my work and my home. Now that I’m on mat leave it’s the perfect little home-away-from-home, Saturday night family date, latte excursion, etc.

Hmmmm those are my favs too. Although I prefer coffee and mostly frappes at that with my sandwiches. My fav sandwiches are a corn & spinach with cheese & grilled tuna sandwich. Also a cafe here has really wonderful club sandwiches.
I’ve heard so much about Kichesippi beers.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (14) and Sarah (12). I am the Editor of the Kitchissippi Times as well as Capital Parent Newspaper. I'm also a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999 (which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which). The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
