Earl Sandwich – Waialae, HI

So when I write my restaurant reviews, I struggle with putting Honolulu which basically almost everything is in or naming the neighborhood. I should stick to the neighborhood yeah? How is everyone doing? I hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend was so busy for me, had a lot to do! Sorry I didn’t have a post up for Sunday! This week is going to be a bit nuts too but luckily we get a day off on Wednesday (my apologies to those who do not get a day off). Have you folks been to Earl Sandwich yet? It’s a brand spanking new sandwich shop located in the same parking lot as Happy Days, Cafe Laufer, etc. They took over the spot of a BBQ joint and they are still very new! Great ratings on Yelp so far so I wanted to do a quick lunch order! Here are the results!

140324-01French Dip – Beef, Gruyere, Dijon, Fennel Onion Marmalade, and Au Jus – $8.00

140324-02Gotta get a look at the insides! Doesn’t that look amazing? For this particular visit, they forgot to pack the Au Jus. 🙁 Luckily, my coworker still liked the sandwich and said that it had so much flavor for him that he forgave the Au Ju mistake. Would definitely recommend, just check for the Au Jus before you leave!

140324-03Jamestown – Turkey, Mayo, Dijon, Lettuce, Tomato, Curried Yams, and Cranberry – $8.00

140324-04What a beautiful sandwich – I can see why the job title is sandwich artist. Well for this place anyway… 🙂

140324-05This sandwich was good. Not great but good. It’s an interesting combination – the curried yams, cranberry, turkey…it’s a whole lot of different flavors going on. Not too sold on the curried yams for this sandwich.

140324-06Goat Cheese – Herbed Goat Cheese, Sautéed Asparagus, Cherry Tomatoes, and Balsamic – $8.00

140324-07Look. At. That. Goat. Cheese. Oh sorry, herbed goat cheese. As a lover of goat cheese, this sandwich was calling me.

140324-08Oh yes…I don’t care if you can’t see the other ingredients. That’s just how much I love goat cheese.

140324-09How was the sandwich? Awesome. I didn’t even miss the meat – I just enjoyed the flavors and fresh vegetables in this sandwich! Highly recommended!

If you are ever in the Waialae area, I highly recommend this place. The sandwiches are great! The bread is fresh and very crusty. While I’m not usually a fan of hard bread, their sandwiches made it a-okay. They were pretty fast in making the sandwiches too! They are still starting up so help support them! We need to keep these quality places around.
