Corner Bakery Cafe (UTC)
I was shopping at UTC mall when Dennis called to ask about that night's dinner plans. Since there were multiple restaurants where I was, I decided we should try out Corner Bakery Cafe. It's part of a chain with about 170 locations nationwide including at least three in the San Diego area. Besides sandwiches and salads, they also have fresh baked bread for sale that you pass on the way to the register.
I really wanted a panini that day. The Chicken Pomodori had ingredients that I love so that's what I ordered. The flavor of the chicken with the tomatoes and spinach and creamy cheese was exceptional together. The sourdough was a little bit more on the crispy side but goes perfectly with the ingredients inside. It's no surprise to me that it's a customer favorite including me now!
On the side were house-made potato chips which were a little crunchy and lightly salted. I gave Dennis the pickle.
Dennis got the Roast Beef and Goat Cheese sandwich. Sometimes goat cheese doesn't work in a sandwich but it did here, adding a nice creamy taste to the deli meat. The bread was also nicely toasted and about the right thickness for the ingredients. It was another very delicious sandwich but I preferred mine while Dennis preferred this one.
I haven't been into sandwiches lately, especially when I feel like I could make something better at home but these left me very satisfied! I'm interested in trying a few more from their menu since we only got to try two of them. Any other recommendations?
