Sandwiches from Mile End

This weekend we checked out Mile End Sandwich Shop, the Noho outpost of the Boerum Hill, Brooklyn favorite. Located on posh Bond Street between Lafayette and Bowery, this inventive and modern Jewish delicatessen is just what we needed in the neighborhood. The inside is sleek and minimalist, with a long communal table filling the room and dozens of hungry patrons lining up for take-out orders at all hours of the day and night. On the menu  full of enticing combinations of meats, cheeses, vegetables and bread, there is truly something for everyone. Playful names such as “The Ruth Wilensky” (fried beef salami, mustard) and the “Chopped Liver” (gribenes, pickled shallots), make the whole experience exciting and fun. 

First we tried the “Fried Eggplant,” which was a light and airy pita filled with thin, crispy slices of fried eggplant, sweet roasted peppers, and salty grilled halloumi cheese. If you haven’t tried grilled halloumi cheese, you are in for a real treat. This Mediterranean delight of a cheese, with its crispy, hard crust, works brilliantly in the sandwich.

Next up we tried the “Fried Green Tomato,” which was equally indulgent and delicious. The bun was soft and the toppings of blue cheese, radish and vegetables provided a refreshing contrast to the crispy fried green tomatoes.

    Would encourage readers to make this on their own (of course, after tasting the ME version). I think a follow up recipe post is in order…

      Next time we make them (which we will be doing!), I will do a step-by-step post! You will have to share your bread-making skills, because that is all you!
