Keeping it simple, doing a few classic sandwiches perfectly
If you're in the mood for something hearty for lunch or dinner, Bread and Meat Co in the TCB Building off the Fortitude Valley Mall should definitely be on your 'must go' list. Their philosophy is to keep the menu simple and do it amazingly well.
Good Bread, Good Meat, Good God Let's Eat!
With just three sandwich options, three sides and three salads, you're not spoiled for choice but they stay true to their North American roots and provide a top quality sandwich for a tiny price.
I went with a group of friends and between us we sampled all three sandwich options with a shared side of poutine and sweet potato chips. One of my friends is American and while she loved the meal, she said that the pulled pork wasn't technically how it would be served in the States. This is not something that held us back at all though as all the options were succulent and well stacked with the perfect amount of filling.
The Poutine was a swimming in gravy a little too much for my liking but again this did not detract from the taste of the delicious potato fries with a topping of cheese curd. The sweet potato fries were definitely the best I've tasted and were caramelised, crispy and topped with parmesan and chopped spinach. I would go back just for a bowl of these if I wasn't in the mood for a sandwich.
The consensus from the group was that the beef brisket with Swiss Cheese and horseradish aioli was the clear sandwich winner and will definitely be my choice for a my second visit.
Highly recommend for a meal any time of the week but as a Friday night venue, it was a great place to fill up before going for a drink at one of the many bars in the Valley. It shuts at 8pm so make sure you get in early to avoid missing out.
