I’ve been meaning to try the Sammitch food truck in the Eugene area for, well, going on 2 years now. I’m nothing if not prompt! But hey, I finally did it, finally bit into the sammich… and here are my thoughts and some images:
There are two Sammitch trucks/carts in Eugene. One is usually located off of Chambers, and the other is usually downtown near the post office. Since I was downtown, that’s the one I landed at. With the husband and kiddo in tow we ordered a few things – which is always handy for the food blogger!
Let’s get right to the nitty gritty, shall we?
Now, Sammitch isn’t what I expected. I wasn’t expecting a majority of their sandwiches to be served on Dave’s Killer Bread (which I love) – sure, you could say it’s a somewhat uninventive move conceptually, but really, I like Dave’s bread (insert satisfied shoulder shrug). Sure, they don’t utilize local bakeries or make their own sandwich bread, but they still have something I enjoy and something I often crave. #thumbsup With the “saminis” you have the option of Dave’s or a ciabatta roll – I happened to chose a ciabatta roll for my sammitch as the husband ordered a sandwich which came on Dave’s.
Here are our sandwiches:
Would I go back? Absolutely. There at least a few sammitches I’d like to try.
Now, as the Sammitch truck parked on Willamette and 6th isn’t exactly equipped to eat at (no tables or area to comfortably chow down), I would recommend taking your sandwich to the nearest park area (we went to Skinner Butte Park on the Willamette River) – or, if you’re just popping over from work, taking it back to your workplace is a good option, too.
Side note: Sammitch has won The Eugene Weekly’s (a local publication) “Best of Eugene – Food Truck” 2 years in a row. #BraggingRights
