So last night I was seriously thinking about writing an exalting post about what I consider to be Richmond, VA’s best sandwich: 821 Cafe’s Smoked Turkey and Chedder Sub w/ Bacon. Typically, this sandwhich comes with succulent smoked turkey, sliced thin, yellow chedder melted over it, and the optional bacon, on really delicious bread. Served nice and hot with a pile of incendiary fries on the side, this sandwhich works on soooooooooooooo many levels.
Well last night, it didn’t. I’m not entirely certain (because I didn’t ask), but I think they ran out of smoked turkey and filled in the gap with their roast turkey…it was just enough difference in taste to be a bit dry and boring. Still mostly delicious, and the bacon really helped, but in general, disappointing.
