I recently met up with my good friend and one half of Barely Regal Records’ Matt Fidler. He had previously expressed an interest in the sandwich club so it was only right to invite him for a sandwich outing. On this particular day we went with Matt’s Wow Deli suggestion.
Although Wow was reviewed some time ago, many trips have since been made and it’s good to acknowledge its progression or lack of.
As the cold weather conditions the last few weeks have been severely noticeable the intense heat oozing beyond the delis entrance was much welcomed. For me, the hot meat option consisting of turkey, cranberry and stuffing was the simplest decision. Matt ordered the chicken and chorizo wedge sandwich and depending on your server can consist of half a bread loaf sliced in two.
The deli’s seating option is limited to only a few tables and chairs outside the front of the shop. In the summer this is a welcomed option to indulge in some sandwich eating but in minus temperatures we take the short walk back to my house. This resulted in my hot meat option becoming a frustratingly cold one.
The progression of Wow since last year has been fairly minimal. But is this a bad thing? The sandwiches are still some of the most stands out in Cardiff but perhaps my many visits now leave me uninspired by the selection of fillings. In the case of Wow, I guess the idiom “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” certainly applies.
*Note: I will promise to improve on the phone camera pictures. Hopefully santa drops off an SLR.
Christmas Day, and after the customary lunch time feast the evening inevitably brings the potential for a nice sandwich.
This Clubbers Sister came up with a cracker (arf, arf!) so I thought it should be shared with the sandwich world. Here it is:
3 Meat, 2 Cheese, 1 Veg
Bacon, Turkey, Salami (peppered & plain), Philadelphia (full fat), Stilton, lettuce on white bread. Apologies for the quality of the photo.
The verdict: 08:04 am Boxing Day – still full!
Leave your comments of your favourite Christmas leftover sarnies, we’d love to know what your own creations have been.
Happy Christmas – tSC.
