It’s always good to see a sandwich shop queued out of the door, particularly when the queue is being managed down in quick time.The interior is small and functional with a large sandwich counter showcasing a vast array of options. Sandwiches can be made to order, too, but most people are in to grab something quick and well-priced from their display range.
My eye was taken by a spicy salami (spianata) and cream cheese ciabatta. I added a small soup, which today was tomato. Some people were having their sandwich toasted, but I was happy with mine as it was, so was soon on my way.The soup proved to be simple and very tasty, with a very nicely judged texture and plenty of sweet flavour.
The sandwich was similarly very good. The spianata packed a good kick that was neatly offset by the cool cream cheese. I was very pleased with it.
So overall, I was impressed with Rudi’s. As a quick, tasty and reasonably priced lunch option, it was one of the better ones I’ve been to, of late. I’d be happy to visit again to try another from their impressive range of sandwiches.
