I’ve written before about how I’m powerless to resist a line-up for food. Yes, some restaurants can be over-hyped, but generally speaking if a place is popular enough to generate a long line, the food is probably pretty good.
So I got pretty excited when I saw the line at the Green Bench Cafe, a takeout joint (or “takeaway,” as they call it here) that’s well known for its sandwiches. I mean, look at this crowd:
All those people can’t be wrong!
Or maybe they can. I got the beef brisket sandwich, and it wasn’t bad — there was actually a lot about it that I quite liked. But the beef (and you can’t really tell from the picture, but there was a lot of it) was super dry. It was somewhat jerky-esque. It kinda sucks all the moisture out of your mouth.
