Tried out this sandwich shop, daytime hours only, around the corner from its daddy restaurant, Kapnos. Sampled two sandwich from the wood-roasted section: suckling pig and goat.

The goat is a cynical sandwich. It's expensive and feels like eating scraps that might normally be thrown away - maybe from dinner the night before. It is served with a thick slather of lemon, oregano and potatoes that completely masks any meat flavor. A bite with or without meat tastes pretty much the same. So I pulled out a piece of meat (more like gristle) and even without the bread it tastes just of the sauce.

The suckling pig is pretty low on meat, but fares a little better. The meat is still overwhelmed by the sauce and was a touch dry.

At $13 a piece, these were modest sandwiches completely lacking the quality of Kapnos. Tried two house-flavored sodas ($4 each), and both were underwhelming. They need more sparkle and more spice.

Quite a depressing and expensive lunch.
