A True Must Have. Today I had the Avocado, Tomato & Lettuce Sandwich with a Chocolate-Mocha, Peanut Butter & Banana Shake at Connals. Either the sandwich or the shake are worth a drive but to have both at the same time is a real opportunity that must not be passed up. A recent followup post under Onion Rings by ipse dixit identified the place that does this sandwich and shake. This combo of taste must have its own heading. With a choice of bread the sandwich has a pile of perfectly fresh melt-in-you-mouth avocado with fresh tomato and Lettuce. Keep the wrapping around this sandwich or else it may slide apart and you will have some serious finger licking to do (you will lick your fingers because you will not want to waste any of this one). Every bite is enjoyment. The thick shake is probably the best shake I have ever had. Every flavor is there Chocolate, Mocha, Peanut Butter & Banana. What a blend! I should say, What a Bliss! Remember that spoiled kid in the Willy Wonka movie that was identifying all the taste in that candy. That is how I felt as it came up the straw. I did not want to stop sipping it. These two menu items together deserve a special note on your must try list.
Thanks to Chowhound, ipse and all the others who posted about Connals.
