We had breakfast at Miss Maud Pastry House at Carousel Shopping Centre a few weeks ago. I’ve mentioned previously how Miss Maud provides a welcome temporary escape from the shopping trolleys and food court crowd. It’s usually pretty busy at Miss Maud too, especially at morning tea time, with lots of people dropping in for coffee and cake.
Jac ordered the omelette with mushroom and spinach (AU$14.95), served with a light garden salad (more of a garnish than a salad, but enough) and toasted triangles of Turkish bread. The omelette was filled with lots of chunky mushrooms, lush green spinach and a little cheese. If you prefer, the omelette is also available with ham and cheese for the same price.
I ordered the Lund club sandwich (AU$12.95), a double decker lightly toasted multigrain sandwich with ham, mustard mayonnaise, Swiss cheese, avocado, tomato and lettuce. I’ve loved flag toothpicks ever since I was a child. When I was a kid, I thought a dish with a flag stuck into it was the epitome of fancy food – OK, you can laugh if you like! Obviously, I don’t think that now, but a toothpick such as this Swedish flag always brings back that feeling of childhood delight, which makes me smile and feel happy.
It was a delicious sandwich. The best part was that magnificent mustard mayo. I loved the layers of ham smothered in lashings of that gorgeous mustard mayo. Every bite and smear was a pleasure. Although she enjoyed her omelette, I reckon Jac was filled with food envy as soon as she saw my wonderful sandwich. I did share it with her, and she shared her omelette with me. :)
I love a good club sandwich. Jac reckons her ideal club sandwich would be made with light rye bread and:
- Swiss and Tasty cheeses
- Miss Maud’s mustard mayo
- very thinly sliced red onion
- salt and pepper
I’d go for white or multigrain bread with:
- Swiss cheese
- Miss Maud’s mustard mayo
- pepper (on the tomato)
What would you have in your ideal club sandwich?
To drink, Jac ordered the Olde Worlde Lemon Soda (AU$4.90) and I ordered a Sunrise (AU$4.95). The Sunrise has become my standard drink order whenever I go to Miss Maud. It’s made from orange juice, pineapple juice and lemonade with “a touch of magic sunrise”, which I presume is grenadine or raspberry cordial. Jac enjoyed her lemon soda, which was very refreshing.
The Lund club sandwich put me in a better mood than I am usually in when I’m about to tackle the grocery shopping. That’s the power of a really good sandwich.
