Try out the Blue Shirt Cafe in Somerville for its roast beef sandwich

January 5, 2011


I’m not usually a fan of roast beef sandwiches. I find they are too heavy on the meat and too light on everything else (e.g. Billy’s Famous Roast Beef in Wakefield). But recently I discovered the wonder that is a Blue Shirt Cafe roast beef sandwich.  The item is specifically called the Highland Ave. (the cafe is located on Highland Avenue in Somerville); it consists of roasted beef, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, and horseradish spread. I think you can get the sandwich with rye, sourdough, or wheat bread (I choose rye).

It’s the perfect blend of delicious meat, veggies, cheese, and the spread. The spread is amazingly tasty, and so is the bread. I have a hard time not shoveling the meal into my mouth. Round out your meal with a cup of squash soup and a strawberry banana smoothie.
