'Wichcraft and Burrata

'Wichcraft and Burrata
I was working in the City yesterday, so I decided to give 'Wichcraft a go. At the suggestion of the staff (I have to stop asking these questions!) I ordered the tomato soup with parmesan and 1/2 sandwich. It was rainy and soup just seemed like the right thing to have.
Wrong! It was both the consistency and flavor of canned soup. The sandwich I ordered was tuna. You can't get 1/2 a hot sandwich with soup. I would swear this was preprepared, as it arrived immediately and the baguette and plate it was on were as icy cold as the tuna itself. It was visually very unappealing. The lemon in the sandwich was in thickish slices on the bread and if there was any aioli, as promised, it was in very short supply. Mostly just mashed tuna, capers, the lemon and a tiny slice of fennel. Very "tuna" and not much else. I left 3/4 of the food behind...
And moved on to Bristol Farms to see what LA is sending our way. I had an idea that they might sell the Gioia Burrata as it comes from S Cal, and I was right! The price is great- 9.99 for a container. It was all fresh and I have some for dinner tonight. An exciting find to offset my lunch.
