Urban Think Deli

in All Posts

I met my dear Meghann for lunch today at Urban Think Deli, a small cafe that is attached to a local bookstore in downtown Orlando.

I was so happy to see Meghann! Our schedules have been conflicting lately.

I ordered the Tempting Eve:

My sammie contained sliced Granny Smith Apples, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion, carrots, and sprouts on soft, squishy bread.

It came with really delicious honey cup mustard on the side:

Plus, chips:

And I couldn’t resist getting a Dogfish Head Punkin beer:

After our lunch date, I went to the UPS Store to return all my old work equipment.  I’m officially done.

You don’t even want to know how much it cost to ship my computer stuff back (I’m not paying for it, thank goodness!).

 

What are your favorite fun sammie toppings?  I like:

 

  • Apples with Melted Cheese
  • Sprouts
  • Cucumber
  • Kidney Beans
  • Sweet Potato and Black Beans

This made me smile.  πŸ™‚

    I love apples in sandwiches. Apples, brie cheese, and turkey sandwiches are the absolute best!

    • Caitlin October 16, 2009, 3:03 pm

      nom nom nom apples and brie cheese sound delish!!

  • Julia October 16, 2009, 3:03 pm

    I like almond slivers. I like the actual crunch of the nuts. Nut butter is great too, of course, but when you just want a wee bit of the healthy fats and ya want some crunch, I like adding a few nuts just straight up to a lunchmeat or hummus sandwich. Actually, my favorite combo is to mix a scoop of protein powder with just a tablespoon or two of water so it makes a thick paste, use that as my sandwich filler, and then add some nut slivers to that.

    Caitlin, I’m so excited for you. You are truly living my dream. I have appointments with agents for my book at the end of January. Hopefully, I’ll be writing about some good news like you soon. πŸ˜‰

    I second and third the apples/brie combo.

    How much fun! I’ve been to that place but hadn’t checked out their menu. Good to see you two got together!

  • Kat (kats daily plate) October 16, 2009, 3:08 pm

    I’ve been told to try that Punkin Ale. Is it good?
    My favorite sandwich combinations are:
    -Banana peppers, cheese, lots of veggies, and oil and vinegar
    -Applegate Farms turkey bologna (sorry- non-veggie) and honey mustard with cheddar cheese
    – humus + olive tapenade and veggies. SUUUCh a good combo!

    • Caitlin October 16, 2009, 3:11 pm

      it is delicious!!

  • Kristin October 16, 2009, 3:12 pm

    I bought dogfish punkin beer just because you reccomended it! Soooo good! Expensive and hard to find where I live but totally worth it once in awhile!

  • Paige @ Running Around Normal October 16, 2009, 3:33 pm

    Love the Granny Smith Apple slices in there! That’s a good one to recreate! I love portabello mushrooms, sprouts, mustard, and tomatoes in mine.

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite October 16, 2009, 3:33 pm

    I too like the apple/brie combo! One of my all time favorites is fresh buffalo moz, basil, tomato, and balsamic on ciabatta bread πŸ™‚

  • Julie October 16, 2009, 3:36 pm

    Sprouts! I put sprouts on every.single.sandwich I make. I also like tomato, spinach, and cheese.

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) October 16, 2009, 3:54 pm

    I like adding asparagus, or other roasted veggies that are leftover in the fridge. Plus mustard- mustard goes with everything (except nutbutter haha). πŸ™‚

  • Kristen October 16, 2009, 4:12 pm

    Love that sandwich combo! Very fall appropriate with the apples and cheese. I must find that beer! The boyfriend loves Dogfish and I love pumpkin – perfect!

    My friend has a dog (a mutt but looks like a husky) who sings happy birthday. He would call each of us on our birthdays in college πŸ™‚

  • Julie @savvyeats October 16, 2009, 4:12 pm

    I pretty much like hummus and avocados on everything.

    I want my dog to tell me he loves me.

  • Jenna October 16, 2009, 4:52 pm

    Your lunch looks so good! What a cute restaurant. Hopefully that honey mustard was good. I LOVE honey mustard, but it can either be hit or miss. No in betweens πŸ™‚

  • Andee (Runtolive) October 16, 2009, 4:53 pm

    I love putting sweet and savory combos together in my sandwich, like a fried egg sandwich with peanut butter and maple syrup. Sounds gross, but it’s so good!!

  • Olga @ Healthing It October 16, 2009, 5:00 pm

    That’s the best pumpkin beer EVER

  • Lindsay October 16, 2009, 5:09 pm

  • Runningwriter October 16, 2009, 6:20 pm

    What a relief to send your work stuff back!!
    I love grilled veggie and hummus sandwiches. And sundried tomatoes make any savoury sandwich good.
    The dog video is awesome!!

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) October 16, 2009, 7:51 pm

    Oh my gosh – what a dog!!! Cute!!!

  • Emily October 16, 2009, 8:09 pm

    I’ve never tried the whole apple cheese combo on a sammie, but this isnt the first time I’ve seen it! I need to try it soon! πŸ˜€

    Goat cheese is always a favorite sandwich fixing. It makes all sandwiches better!

  • Stacey October 16, 2009, 9:33 pm

  • emily October 16, 2009, 10:11 pm

    That sandwich looks tasty, apples and cheese are a good combo anywhere! Dogfish makes my most favorite pumpkin beer; although Southern Tier is a close second.

  • Whole Body Love October 17, 2009, 12:42 am

    Aw! That takes me back! We had Huskies and Malamutes when I was little. They have the coolest “voices”.

  • BroccoliHut October 17, 2009, 1:56 am

    What a fab sandwich! My fave toppings=hummus, guac, and salsa, all together:)

  • Ellen October 17, 2009, 4:16 am

    i love sandwiches! my current obsession was featured on my blog it is so good! really good provolone (not the tasteless waxy kind), sliced pear, and arugula.

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Eat October 17, 2009, 8:56 am

    I just discovered sweet potato and black beans make a good burrito filling and so I’m sure they would rock on a sandwich as well! I’m so glad you got all that work stuff sent back, I bet that was a huge weight lifted.

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) October 17, 2009, 1:37 pm

    I like fruit and cheese combos.

    I also love hummus and eggs.
