Ratketeers, I'm back. I was away on vacation in Aulani for the past two weeks. Some of you might have thought that your Honorable One has abandoned you and left for greener pastures, but never fear, I am still alive and kicking. I will never do such a thing as to abandon you Ratketeers. It's not my style. In fact, I'm thinking about writing a blog post in the near future about all the yummy food that I devoured in Oahu. More information for all of you that will hopefully help you eat better when traveling to a Disney Resort. I'll get to that once I'm done with reviewing all the sandwiches that New York Deli has to offer. It's back to business for this rat and today's sandwich up for review is the Shrimp & Salmon Trout on Soft Bagel.
The Shrimp & Salmon Trout on Soft Bagel is the most affordable sandwich on offer at New York Deli. It goes for 640 yen. It comes with the sandwich itself and a few pieces of pickled capsicums on the side. I really have no idea what the pickled capsicums are there for. I'm gonna guess that they are there to add to the appearance of the dish. On paper, it is said that the sandwich contains smoked salmon trout, shrimp, avocado sauce, cream cheese, lettuce and red onions. What I saw was smoked salmon trout, very little pieces of shrimp, a few pieces of lettuce, a layer of cream cheese and a small dab of avocado sauce sandwiched in between a bagel. What I tasted was smoked salmon, cream cheese, the teeny weeny bit of crunchiness from the minimal pieces of shrimp and lettuce, and a lot of bagel.
The sandwich itself tasted good. The smoked salmon trout was fresh and the cream cheese added a rich, sour flavor to the sandwich. The dance between the cream cheese and the smoked salmon trout was beautiful, but the proportion of ingredients to the bagel made me feel like I've been swindled by false advertising. They should cut the word "Shrimp" from the name of this dish. Just Salmon Trout on Soft Bagel would suffice. Yes, the bagel was soft, but where's my shrimp?! Where's the avocado sauce?! Did the onions decide to take a day off?!
All in all, this sandwich tasted good. The bagel was soft and the ingredients, even though there were very few of them present in my bagel, were fresh, but don't you just hate it when you don't get what you paid for? Don't you just hate it when someone promises to take you to Disneyland, but ends up taking you to a rundown amusement park? Don't you just hate it when someone in a suit and a toupee gets on stage, talks talks talks, but almost everything he says is not feasible in the modern world? Well, this sandwich reminds me of all the scenarios mentioned above. This is definitely the weakest sandwich in New York Deli. Weakest, but still good enough for some to indulge in. Maybe, this would fly in New Hampshire, but for this rat, there are other sandwiches in New York Deli that I would rather spend my money on.
