Possibilities are endless ...
We’re back at Graubunden. But their sandwiches are that good! And with so many filling combinations and 4 types of bread’s to choose from the possibilities are endless…
Today Kim has a mushroom omlette on soft baguette. It’s a thick omlette filled with a range of delicious Japanese mushrooms, nicely seasoned and still a little soft in the centre. There’s a thin smear of tomato ketchup and melted cheese all incased in a gorgeous soft baguette.
I have a toasted bagel with bacon, tomato and cream cheese. The bagel is lightly toasted and slathered with butter. Then there’s the generous slices of grilled bacon, a big dollop of cream cheese and a few slices of tomato. It’s seasoned nicely with cracked pepper and the crisp fresh vegetables, kewpie mayonnaise and potato salad to the side are spot on.
To accompany our sandwiches we both can’t resist a maple au lait. A cold shaken milk sweetened just so with Canadian maple. Mmmm.
It’s always daunting … with each visit we take turns in tackling the enormous task of choosing just one sweet to share from the display cabinet. This time I choose a chocolate, cream & banana dome. The triumphant slice arrives, there are layers of soft sponge, chocolate, fresh cream and banana. It’s delicious!
Of course we both have a delicious hot cocoa. It’s Van Houten cocoa with hot milk. Then there’s a big spoon of fresh whipped cream and freshly grated cinnamon to top it off. I even pose for a very-Japanese photo moment, with my hot chocolate.
