New Nigerian Club Sandwich

by on June 3, 2015
 

The sandwich to my teenagehood, as open-face egg sandwiches were to my youth.

Imagine a BLT (Bacon-Lettuce-Tomato) but more. Double decker. Same elements. And more, for the New Nigerian Kitchen.

Toast. The virtues of well-toasted bread cannot be overstated. Crisp, golden, sturdy for receipt of vegetables and more.

I like the colours here. If this sarnie was human, it would be resplendent. That’s the right word, right?

This is an adult sarnie, grown up. Not in a kids-aren’t-supposed-to-have-this way,…More by way of a vibrant green scent leaf sauce and a berry-hot sauce of zobo. And suya chicken, beef and sturves :).

Still double decker.

But much yum, more so than I remember.
