We wanted to take a picnic lunch to Marblehead last week and my brain finally remembered Scratch Kitchen , which has had a number of positive CH posts over the last few years. As their name conveys, they 'make everything in-house'. The salads and their dressings are unusual and well thought-out. The clam chowder was simple and tasty but the broth needed thickness and some heavy cream and thyme would have helped. They do a nice sourdough , which they lightly toast, and the turkey ,lettuce and jack cheese were all high quality (they smoke the turkey in-house, but we really couldn't taste the smoke, though the turkey itself was a very nice product- pure turkey flavor [no loaf, no gelatin] and very moist.) Tomatoes were freight car- disappointing but we figured that, and brought along our own Verrill Farm Black Princes (yep, we are wicked spoiled by these and eat as many as we can for the ~4 wks that they last.) But here's the kooky thing- Scratch Kitchen puts potato chips ON the turkey in the sandwich. I had seen this listed in the turkey sandwich ingredients but figured it was a typo. But no, it is an intentional addition to their turkey sandwich.
Now, if I try hard, I can understand doing that if you are making a sandwich at home and you're going to eat it forthwith. But for TAKE-OUT?? What could possibly be appealing about soggy potato chips? Sure, it was no big deal; I just removed them after I realized. But does anyone else find this element weird on a take-out sandwich?
