Cover Story

The Place: The Sal 118 Frederica Street West 577-8635 The Price: $17, including choice of side The Basics: Turkey, ham, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, tomato, lettuce, and mayo on rye bread The Lowdown: The clubhouse sandwich has long been a staple of The Sal, so when owner Aaron Gillingham took over in 2017, he knew that few changes were needed to keep it at the top of the Westfort diner's bestseller list. The hearty, piled-high sandwich tests the limits of jaw capacity, and yet each bite has a light, fresh taste. As The Sal originally had Greek origins, the Greek side salad remains a favourite to pair with it, although extra-thick cut fries with gravy (they go through 175 pounds of gravy a week!) are another tempting way to embrace the full diner experience. -Review and photo by Nik Fiorito
