Iâm sorry that everyone is freezing their a**es off in 90% of the country. Everyone keeps telling me how cold it is everywhere. And it feels like Iâm rubbing it in by posting pictures of sunny blue skies and beaches. I should be make more stews and hearty meals to keep you warm. Less salads and tacos and beach foods. Iâll whip up something warm and hearty tonight. I promise.
Last week on New Years Eve we took a stroll along the beach at Del Mar, trying to remember the name of place we were supposed to try for lunch.
I have yet to see this beach really crowded. This is the most people Iâve seen here, probably because it was a holiday. Maybe it gets more crowded during the summer months.
I donât know why, but I really liked this photo.
And this one.
After walking along Camino Del Mar we finally found the place. Board & Brew is a small sub/sandwich shop serving hungry surfers. And myself. We actually didnât remember the name of the shop until we walked by a big crowd of people waiting in line. That was when we knew it was the place we were looking for.
We ordered the Turkado sandwich: turkey, jack cheese, avocado, tomato, onions and lettuce slathered with mayo and served on a deliciously fresh sourdough bread. I donât know what it was, but something made this sandwich DELICIOUS. You would think sandwiches were just sandwichesâ¦.but some sandwiches are just better than others. Maybe it was the avocado and mayo combination. Or the sourdough bread. I donât know. Iâm never going to Subway again.
We also ordered the Turkey Club: turkey, bacon, Swiss, lettuce and tomato on a French baguette slathered with mayo. Pretty damn good. Iâm definitely never going to Subway again.
Some close-ups of the Turkey Club.
More close-ups of the definition of pure deliciousness.
If I had to choose between the two sandwiches itâd be a tough call. The turkey club has bacon, and bacon makes everything bacony good. But ultimatelyâ¦I would have to go with the Turkado. Something about the combination of flavors in between the soft and chewy sourdough bread had me craving it ever since.
The Board & Brew has two locations, one in Del Mar and one in Carlsbad. Here is their website:
