Sometimes, nothing is quite as satisfying as a sandwich. Or a sandwich disguised as a salad. When the urge hits you, head to Wally’s in West Olympia.
Wally’s Sandwich Bar has something for everyone including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free. You can probably put together something low-FODMAP. Sub breads, deli breads, wraps and pitas. All of their specialty sandwiches are available as a salad. And vegetarians rejoice! This is not your typical veggie sub option. Build your own with hummus, artichoke hearts, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, falafel, tzatziki, fresh mozzarella or feta cheese.
I ordered the Tempeh Reuben and the Cool Cucumber to split with my better half so we could each try two new sandwiches. Even before I was halfway through the Reuben, I knew I wanted another one in the future. I have never had anything like it, it was delicious. Also from past experience: Falafel sandwich=yum. An out-of-town guest with several decades of sandwich eating experience ordered the Gyro sandwich and proclaimed it the best he’d ever had. There are PB&J and grilled cheese options for the kids and a number of sides. Fast and friendly service and Dum Dum lollipops in the to-go bag.
Also check out the napkin art wall! This takes those napkin doodles to a whole new level! Maybe you will be inspired to learn to draw.
It was about $11 per person for a little piece of sandwich heaven.
