La Place Tuna Salad

By far the best tuna (salad) sandwich you’ll ever sink your teeth into. There, I’ve said it. This is the tuna salad I paid good money for when I didn’t have the recipe yet; I thought it would be far more complex. They sell this beauty over at la Place—a lunchroom in the Netherlands that belongs to a chain of stores (V&D) that recently went bankrupt. Such a shame. Anyway,…

Kay’s Club Sandwich

Now this is a serious lunch. So serious in fact I have to split it with someone as I can barely eat half of this. I really wanted to share this recipe with you because I have a thing for club sandwiches—they make me all giddy and happy—probably because they’re kinda retro and I’m partial to old-school comfort food. But that aside; there’s something really satisfying about biting down on…

Chicken & Red Onion Sauce Sandwich

I have a love/hate relationship with the red onion sauce our grillrooms serve with the shoarma that’s often eaten after a night out. It’s one of the mellowest sauces ever, but also quite oily. It’s not exactly a low-fat recipe, but so chockfull of flavour and it goes with pretty much anything you can think of, and then some. That counts for something, right? Found only a small handful recipes…

This sandwich is so chockfull of flavour, texture and surprising…

Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato Jam Sandwich

Bacon sandwich. Technically speaking I shouldn’t even have to write anything else after these two words, right? But I will, like I always do. I just don’t know when to shut up. The story is short and sweet; saw this divine combination of bacon and tomato jam in a Triple D episode about a place named Cutty’s in Boston. I’m such a die-hard Triple D fan, it’s pathetic. But anyway,…

Jamaican-Style Chicken Burger

Burger binge! Not that I could ever tire of my comeback burger, but the last thing I need is to get stuck in a burger rut now that June’s around the corner. So I came up with this baby. Here’s what happens when you turn my Jamaican jerk chicken into a Jamaican-style chicken burger. It packs a delicious punch. I toned down the heat making it a bit more family…
