Hi again!, It's Wednesday and my third installment of Sandwich week. I have been receiving Facebook comments about other sandwiches I haven't met yet, I am intrigued.. more about this at the end of the week.
As for today, I will tell you about a long time love affair I have with the B.L.A.T. It is a bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato sandwich that should only be purchased at Wild Mountain Cafe in Ballard it's actually right on 85th.. if you sneeze you will miss it so write this down (1408 NW 85th St. Seattle, WA 98117(206) 297-WILD)
Years ago , when the chicklets were little and the business was too, I would get a babysitter and take myself here for lunch. I would take a stupid magazine or a book and order my BLAT and a diet coke and feel like I was hiding away from my crazy world. It was bliss. This place has all those homemade things you wish for in your heart like, Fried Chicken, Mac and Cheese etc....
Everything you eat here is fresh, most likely organic and made with talent and love...
These lovely small business owners have been done wrong by YELP so let's all go and eat there and help to make up for it..
