True North has been on my mind for so long. Since April in fact, ever since Johanna from Green Gourmet Giraffe blogged about her Reuben sandwich. I’m often in the area, though never really with the opportunity to sit down somewhere and have a quiet meal. Well folks, let me tell you that after my sandwich today, I’m gonna be going back as often as I can.
I went at a non-busy time and gave the menu a quick glance. The veganisable meals do sound quite good (check out the menu here) but I was set on trying the vegan Reuben so I didn’t spend too much time with the menu. I’ve never had a Reuben sandwich before and this was a bit of a cautious experiment, because even as a non-vegan I hated Reuben ingredients like corned beef (blergh) and sauerkraut. But hey, I like mustard.
True North has a relaxed vibe and I was very happy with the friendly, prompt service. Music was playing at a decent volume, staff were welcoming and I was happy to just sit there taking a few pics:
My Reuben sandwich came out in good time. At a glance, I could tell I was going to enjoy this. The bread was perfect, with bits of mustard oozing through (I had to keep wiping my hands but who cares, this was one great sandwich). Honestly, before I ordered I was expecting to be kinda ho hum about it, given the vegan pastrami (I always hated pastrami) and the sauerkraut. But it was delicious. One of the nicest sandwiches I’ve ever eaten.
True North is located right at the intersection of Sydney Road and Munro Street (about one or two shops away):
I will definitely head back there as soon as I can to work my way through the vegan options. But I might get another Reuben before all that.
