AQ Kafe's Sandwich

If you’re an avid reader of the food blog Midtown Lunch, you would’ve known that AQ Kafe has given out sandwiches for free today. I wouldn’t mind schlepping crosstown for a free lunch.

30 AM
It’s not a secret…

Arriving there around 11:25, there was a line out the door but it moves quite briskly (about seven minutes from standing on line ’til receiving my sandwich.) There’s a sign at the registers listing the free sandwiches: Black Forest Ham, Roast Beef, Vine-ripened tomato, and Wild Tuna Salad.

I opted for the ham just because it’s supposedly filled with red cabbage, apple, sauerkraut, herb mustard, and it’s encased with onion rye bread. When I actually bite into it, it’s missing apples and it’s on the smallish side. But I’m not complaining for something that tastes good and it’s free. Normally, this baby would cost me $8.95 (about $9.70, including tax), which I wouldn’t pay for unless I know it’s earth shatteringly awesome. At least I know… Probably I’ll drop in another day for their pastries and cakes, which did look enticing.

    Danny: Yeah, after looking at the crazy ass line that’s posted on ML, I’m thankful I’ve hauled my butt earlier. As for the sandwich, it’s relatively “meh” in my book.
