The Slow and Savory Review
It was a warm spring day in Chicago when Brandy was suddenly and abruptly reminded of that period in her life when she heard the sounds of a familiar song drifting through the air. "That's what those four young hairy blokes used to play outside my window," she mumbled to herself as she wandered towards the music. Eventually she found herself outside of a friendly looking cafe called Sandwich Me In, from which the music had been wafting through the open door.
Quite quickly, the smiling man brought over a tray of food to Brandy's table, including a piece of Bread Pudding. "It's our one year anniversary special," he explained, seeing the amazement on her face, "Every dine in order comes with a complimentary slice." What he didn't know was that Brandy had intended to order the bread pudding from the start, but had been too dazed by the myriad of delicious items on the menu, and had just resigned herself to going back up to order it once she had finished her sandwich.
First off there was the Vanilla Cola. Normally Brandy wouldn't find a soda remarkable (indeed, she usually doesn't even order the stuff) but the fact that this was made completely from scratch intrigued her. She found that the drink had a earthy, herbal taste to it, and not the syrupy sweetness she had expected. There were notes of licorice and rather than cola, she thought it reminded her a little more of root beer. Never the less, she found it very refreshing and the perfect accompaniment to the food.
As her side, she had chosen the Shoestring Chips with BBQ Sauce. She found the little pile of potato pieces in front of her to be an excellent compromise between more traditional potato chips and French fries, being crisp and eternally snackable. The BBQ sauce that accompanied them was also wonderful, with a great clean flavor that left just the littlest bit of sweetness lingering on the tongue.
At an unbelievable price of $12 and change for everything (as the dessert was free), Brandy decided to spend her leftover pocket money at one of the record shops down the street, buying up anything she spied with the words "Recorded at Abbey Road Studios" on the back.
