This sandwich is not from Henry VII's. Their sandwiches look better.
Henry VIII's is the new guy in town. Janice and I stopped in for a cold drink during a hot August stroll downtown. We found this delicatessen/restaurant to be spacious and "ultra clean." We decided we would return.
Well, we didn't get to Henry VIII's all summer but, at breakfast this morning, two of our guests, Jeff and Sherry, recommended that we try a hand-carved sandwich from Henry VIII's as soon as possible. They suggested that we didn't know what we were missing.
As it turned out, Jeff and Sherry surprised us and brought us back sandwiches. Janice and I each had half of a "Henry VIII"
and half of a "Squire"
sandwich. To top it off, Jeff and Sherry included a side order of Homemade Coleslaw
The Signature Henry VIII
sandwich is hand-carved roast beef topped with their homemade horseradish sauce. The sauce is mild and delicious, the roast beef is cooked medium and is very lean. All this is served warm on a toasted herb-buttered bun
The Squire sandwich
is hand-carved turkey served warm with turkey gravy and cranberry sauce, all on one of those great toasted herb-buttered buns. This warm sandwich was fantastic.Henry VIII's gets two thumbs up from this seasoned professional epicure.
"I wouldn't have a Willie or a Sam." (Does anyone know what that means?)
Thanks Jeff and Sherry for the sandwiches and for proving that at The Maine Stay Inn
, "we have the nicest guests!"
