This is another sandwich recommended long ago by Halifax ReTales on his 101 Best Things to Put in Your Mouth in HRM (2013).
This tiny café is affiliated with next-door neighbour, Chives Canadian Bistro.
Meatball Panini with Aged Cheddar and Tomato – Bacon Relish ($8, Combo $11).
Bread from Boulangerie La Vendéenne is grilled to a perfect crispness. The sandwich is stuffed with sharp gooey cheddar and a moist slab of meatloaf. I didn’t really taste the bacon element.
The first thing I noticed was a ketchupy aroma. Indeed, this meatloaf was very classic; it had that ketchup-onion-breadcrumb combination. So 1980’s.
Problem is: I don’t like ketchup. I also like my meatloaf to be more meaty, less breadcumby. Like my Mom’s
If you are a lover of old school meatloaf you’ll probably enjoy this sandwich. It just wasn’t for me.
I think I’ll opt for the grilled cheese or roast beef next time.
