Between Two Buns is another sandwich shop that has opened up in Yaletown. All their sandwiches have very provocative names. Just think very pervertedly and you’ll know what I mean. The interior of the restaurant is very open, but doesn’t have too many seats, but it’s good if you do takeout.
LazySusan, KevKev, LiLi and I went before a school event to check out the place and grab some lunch. It was around noon and most of the tables were taken up.
All their items are around the $10 range. Their menu is small but you should be able to find something that suits your taste buds.
Poutine Special ($9) has cajun fries topped with seared tuna, avocado sauce, whole runny egg, and green onions.
This is a pretty awesome poutine since it’s quite hearty and it adds a bit of kick due to the sauces and hot spices. It’s not too hot, but is bearable.
Half Maniac Sandwich with side of fries and gravy ($9 +$1)
The Maniac sandwich has double smoked bacon, baby arugula, spicy marinara, asiago cheese, roasted garlic parmesan aoli, and an oven roasted tomato. I thought the sandwich tasted ok, but I felt like flavours could have stood out a bit more.
The fries and gravy were ok as well. The gravy is made from scratch so it is not very salty, but it didn’t have very much flavour to it.
This is the maniac sandwich in it’s full size.
Overall, the sandwiches are ok, but definitely not the best. As there are more and more sandwich shops opening up in Downtown, there is definitely some competition. I am sure they will perfect their menu and try new flavour combinations.
