I guess you could call this a sardine salad sandwich. Chopped with red onion, tomato, lemon juice and dijon and topped with spinach, on toasted sourdough.

I had couple other sandwich pics but they didn't come out well so here's a good breakfast I made.

PS. Went back to Mile End since July and tasted two more tasty sandwiches.

Review: Mile End

Back when I made the mistake of going to Katz's what I was really craving was a smoked meat sandwich, Montreal style. Not only does Mile End have smoked meat sandwiches, they also serve poutine and sell Montreal bagels straight from St-Viateur. These are things I've been missing for years and now I can enjoy them without having to go all the way to Montreal. They also have great/expensive pickles and Stumptown coffee. I recommend this place.

Shredded Chicken Tacos

I had never made shredded chicken before but it was really easy; just cut up some chicken breast in tomato sauce, taco seasoning and whatever else you want and then pull apart with two forks while it's cooking.

Also made some guacamole with lime juice, tomato, cilantro, salt and pepper.

And some black beans cooked with a green bell pepper and an onion.

Coq au vin sandwich

For Patrick's birthday I made coq au vin, which I had never cooked or had before. It takes a long time to prepare (following Julia Child's recipe exactly) but is well worth the time and effort. I chopped up the leftovers and piled them on a toasted sandwich thin with a little manchego. I wish I could eat this sandwich everyday.

I also made this cake, which isn't really a sandwich but it does have a cheesecake "sandwiched" between two layers of red velvet.

REVIEW: Katz's

DON'T GO HERE. The sandwiches are average, the environment is stress-inducing and unfriendly, it's crowded and way overpriced.

Masala burger + Tzatziki in a Baked Tortilla

I made this sandwich more than any other while living in Portland. It requires those Trader Joe's Masala burgers that are no longer within close reach for me. After heating one of those up, mash it onto a flour tortilla, top it with cheese, and put it in the oven until the tortilla is crispy/the cheese has melted. In the meantime, thinly chop some cucumber, raw garlic, and onion and add to yogurt (I used Greek yogurt). Then add some lemon juice, olive oil, and a bit of salt and you've got tzatziki. Not sure how authentic that is... Apply a thick layer to tortilla and then add whatever else you want like some mixed greens.

Tempeh + Kimchi

Tempeh marinated in some kind of sesame sauce, homemade kimchi (really spicy), cuke, mayo on fancy white bread. So good, makes me miss Portland.
