Ever since I Liked Marie’s on facebook, the updates with the daily specials have been driving me crazy. Everything sounds so good, and it is good & sells out if you’re not fast enough. The other day we tried to go to Little Africa for lunch, but they were closed. It was 2pm so we figured the lunchtime rush at Marie’s must surely be over…nope. As usual, there was a line at the door.
Anyway, back to this wonderful sandwich of BBQ portabellas, grilled onions, spinach, ginger slaw, vegan ranch and vegan cheese on Italian bread. There’s not much else to say, except that I loved it. It’s definitely a knife & fork sandwich, just the way I like it.
That night I couldn’t sleep. Lots of things go through my mind late at night, and yes, some nights I really do sit up thinking about food. This can lead to very late night snacks or googling recipe ideas, but in this case I googled one of my favorite chefs. I found this slide show of Marie Catrib Through the Years. I also found this lovely article from a few years ago. Have a look and get to know Marie, if you didn’t have the chance before. Maybe get a box of Kleenex ready. Then, really, you have to visit the restaurant!
