eat all the smith & deli sandwiches – #3, truffle shuffle
The truffle shuffle is a ham and cheese toastie made extra special by the addition of truffle oil.
The bread was a beautiful sourdough multigrain, the house made mozzarella cheese was delicious and pleasingly melty, but I wasn’t so keen on the seitan based ham. That’s me, I am not thrilled by the taste of gluten flour in seitan. It needs to be well spiced and flavoured and there just wasn’t quite enough hammy vibe there to overpower the flavour of the flour. This is a minor quibble. I am being picky, but given the fabulousness of some of the other mock meats at Smith & Deli, the ham didn’t quite measure up for me.
It was still a damn good sandwich. Each bite packed a burst of truffle flavour which really made the sandwich special. But to be honest, I’d probably enjoy this more without the ham.
I ate it as I walked along Moor St in the winter sunshine to see an exhibition at the museum.
