The Secret Sandwich Menu At Bon Fresco
Behold: The HowChow Special.
Bon Fresco has served some of Howard County's best sandwiches since it opened two years ago in Columbia, but they took it to the next level by offering to let me make my own. I was deciding between the roasted vegetables sandwich with tapanade or the turkey sandwich with Maple Lawn Turkey Farm meat. The turkey sounded good, but I wanted the salty tapanade more than whatever condiments were on the official turkey version.
That's when the cashier told me that I could mix and match. Turkey on ciabatta with a thin layer of the roasted vegetables and tapanade. That was absolutely delicious. Bon Fresco's menu items were already exceptional. It just gets better now that I realize that I can shuffle the ingredients myself. Turkey and roasted vegetables is the HowChow Special -- as long as you get the potato salad as your side.
On a similar note, 1ltkis left a comment on a prior post saying that he/she has called Bon Fresco and asked them to make rolls. Ciabatta or French bread rolls? That sounds terrific. Has anyone else ever done this? How far in advance do you call?
