The Crushery

February 1st, 2012

Ok, I know. It's been about a month since my last post. I apologize. Life gets a little hectic from time to time, and January was one of those times. Now that we have that out of the way, please pay close attention. As you probably already know, I love sandwiches. Subs, Tortas, Paninis, Arepas, and any other type of food incased in bread.

With all the different types of sandwiches out there, it stands to reason that there is going to be a lot of good spots, and a lot of bad spots. Well, the Crushery is definitely one of the good spots. After two stellar, hot-and-melty pressed sammies, I now feel completely comfortable in telling you this – eat at the Crushery.

Located on South Pearl street, it's one of a couple restaurants that has lasted through the bizarre closings as of late. And it's not hard to see why it's making it. Creatively composed sandwiches grill-pressed into perfection, a roll-up garage door on warm days, and liquid nitrogen ice cream. While I haven't had the ice cream just yet (trying to get into speedo shape) I have had the #1 and #2. Check 'em out below.

#1 – Shredded Pork, Bacon, Green Chilies, Queso Fresco, Chipotle Aioli. The bacon, green chiles, and Chipotle Aoili really made the tender pork-packed sandwich come to life. While this sandwich wasn't as "melty" as I normally like a grilled sandwich, it was still good down to the last bite.


#2 Pastrami, Sauerkraut, Swiss, Ancho 1000 Island – Out of the two sandwiches, this was my favorite. But I am a sucker for the combination of salty red meat and thousand island dressing. The cheese melted into every crevice, making a inseparable bond with the pastrami. Couple that with creamy 1000 Island – and you're in flavor country.


The Crushery is open Tuesday through Sunday, starting at 7am. Aside from sandwiches, they also do bagels, salads, and of course – liquid nitrogen ice cream. When you're done eating there – like 'em on Facebook and tell em how good it was.
