Savoring the Mudd Honey sandwich
Seattle’s great Delicatus honors a great band
One of the best sandwich spots in Seattle is Delicatus.
Located in the touristic hotspot of Pioneer Square, this attractive joint uses top notch ingredients to make a host of upscale grinders.
It’s a creative place, with quotes chalked on lofty blackboards, a la “Enjoy every sandwich. — Warren Zevon.”
They keep things cheeky with a sandwich honoring the awesome Seattle band, and a favorite of mine, Mudhoney.
The Mudd Honey is described in-house as “Underrated, but arguably the best.”
The sandwich, however, is a gift of flavor. The construction holds sliced roast beef, Zoe’s bacon, white cheddar, horseradish aioli and barbeque sauce on a toasted Italian roll.
I like to side my Mudd Honey with a snappy Dry soda (also made in Seattle), with flavors like rhubarb, and a cup of their house oyster chowder.
