Sandwiches swell at Tap Union Freehouse


first_imgWhy: Tap Union Freehouse is a family-friendly establishment that provides local, nationally recognized and hard-to-find craft beers. There are 25 rotating taps and a menu with simple meal choices to enjoy with beverages.What I tried: My dining companions tried the Moroccan Garden sandwich, the Union Reuben sandwich and the grilled cheese sandwich. I settled on the Cubano sandwich.The Moroccan was a hot-pressed sandwich that combined butternut squash, zucchini, pickled red onion, mushroom and black olive tapenade, chevre and a house Moroccan seasoning. My dining companion loved the complexity of this sandwich and noted she couldn’t compare it to anything she had previously tried. All of the flavors imparted an exotic essence that was very appetizing.The Reuben was made on rye bread with house-smoked pastrami, swiss cheese, turmeric and caraway sauerkraut, and garlic Dijon mayonnaise sandwiched between grilled rye. Two notable differences between Tap Union’s Reuben and other Reubens is the absence of Thousand Island dressing and that the sauerkraut was chopped instead of shredded. Overall, my dining companion (who will always order a Reuben if it’s on the menu) liked the sandwich and said that the house-smoked meat was lean and flavorful.The grilled cheese sandwich also departed from a sandwich of the same variety. Instead of just cheese, it contained saut?ed mushrooms and garlic Dijon mustard. Two cheeses are used in Tap Union’s version — house-smoked cheddar and provolone. The combination on the grilled cheese was rich and tasty, and the mushrooms added texture as well as flavor.last_img
