Hi Hello: great sandwiches in Bushwick

Blumie | Feb 15, 201610:38 AM

A few weeks ago, my SO and I were looking for a casual spot in Bushwick. After a little online research, we ended up at Hi Hello, at the corner of Starr and Wyckoff (two blocks away from the new House of Yes, which has been hosting blockbuster parties nearly every night of the week since they opened in December). In my research I had read about their burger, so on that first visit I ordered the burger and, in a small attempt to pretend to be healthy, I ordered it with a salad instead of fries. Both were great (it's so much easier to skip the fries when the salad option is really good), so on a subsequent visit I ordered the same thing and enjoyed it just as much.

Last night we want back for our third visit in three weeks. This time I decided to order their roast beef sandwich. I should tell you that I NEVER order roast beef. I just don't crave it sufficiently to order it over most other options. But for some reason I was inspired to give it a try. Maybe it was the description from the menu: Roasted Top Round, House Made Truffle Cheese Whiz, Grilled Onions, Ciabatta Hero. Or maybe it was something I read in my research. In any event, I ordered it, and again opted for the salad instead of the fries.

Now maybe I'm not the best judge given, as I admitted, that I don't usually order roast beef, but this was an extraordinary sandwich, one I absolutely will order again. And once again the salad was good enough that I didn't miss the fries. At $13 for a very generously proportioned sandwich (plus $9 for a 20 oz. Other Half IPA; a 10 oz pour is $6), it makes for a very reasonably priced meal.

Their current menu also features a fried chicken sandwich, a seared fish sandwich, and a "veggie joe" sandwich (which looked delicious at a neighboring table and, the waiter assured me, could easily be modified to accommodate my vegan daughter), all of which I'd like to try if I can resist the urge to keep ordering the roast beef and the burger.
