Matterhorn Sandwich at Swiss 2 Go

Swiss 2 Go is a popular sandwich shop that recently relocated from the east part of the city to the west end. It sells mostly sandwiches, soups, and salads.

The selection of sandwiches is as unique as the ingredients, which include dried roast beef, apple crisp, brie cheese, and many other savoury delights - and one sweet Nutella option! I went for a regular-sized Matterhorn, which has the dried beef, avocado, cilantro, and I held the jalapenos and butter.

First of all, the regular size is enormous. A large sandwich, served on a larger bun, would be nearly impossible. Oh, and the bun - it is a fresh pretzel baguette topped with lots of kosher salt. The roast beef almost had the texture of jerky without being quite as dry. The avocado was fresh and in chunky slices, while the cilatro was also coarse.

The beef was definitely an acquired taste, but the food here is very fresh, and service quite friendly. I would perhaps give another sandwich a go. Speaking of going, this is mostly a take-out place with a few tables and no apparent washrooms.
