Sandwich of the week – Jan. 12, 2012


Sandwich: MTR-BLT (More-Than-Regular Bacon Lettuce Tomato)

Hungry student: Karleigh Paul, First-year arts student

What you should know Paul is an active person. She has played volleyball and basketball, and has been involved in track and field since high school. She’s also interested in journalism and is aspiring to enrol into the U of R’s School of Journalism in her second year.

Carillon: What’s on your sandwich?

Paul:  Bacon, lettuce, tomato, American cheese, sandwiched by two pieces of toast

Carillon: What’s so special about that?

Paul: Everything in it is fresh! The lettuce and tomato are freshly cut and prepared when you make the order. It also comes with homemade fries and a pickle.

Carillon: Where did you find such a meal?

Paul: The Regina Fieldhouse.

Carillon: What got into you to leave the university, drive all the way to the field house and back, for a sandwich?

Paul: It’s more than just a regular BLT sandwich. It’s full of flavour. Also, it’s only six bucks, fries and pickle included. To buy anything on campus will cost you $8.

Carillon: OK, besides the cost factor, what makes you crave this more than regular BLT?

Paul: Well, this is the kind of sandwich I’ll go for when I’m tired, hungry, don’t want to make my own sandwich, and when I’m looking for something amazing. It’s healthy and worth it.   

The wrap-up: At the end of the interview, Karleigh offered me the other half of her sandwich. I accepted. After I sank my jaws pass the lightly crisped toast, I then crunched into the BLT’s core. The crispy bacon strips, crunchy leaves of lettuce, juicy tomato slices, and the warm melted cheese felt like the big bang of the sandwich universe. Indeed, everything was fresh and saturated with flavour. My verdict is until I can find a sandwich on campus that is as good as this, anyone would be justified in going to the Regina Fieldhouse for a MTRBLT.
