Benugo Sandwich Café @ Great Portland Street

オックスフォード・サーカスの近くにある、ロンドンのサンドイッチ・チェーンBenugoGreat Portland Street店。今の家に引っ越してきた頃は、近所にあるClerkenwell店やCity Road店に度々行っていたが、最近はお気に入りのランチ場所も増え、系列レストランのRiverfront Café & BarSerpentine Bar & Kitchenには行ったりしたけれど、Benugo自体はご無沙汰していた。先日、Great Portland Streetを通りかかったとき、フランスの田舎街の古い食堂を思わせる店のインテリアがなかなか素敵だったので、久しぶりに立ち寄ってみた。

注文してから作ってくれるフレッシュなサンドイッチは、なかなか美味しかったと記憶していたのだけれど、今回かなり失望。パニーノのパンはちゃんとトーストされていないのか、食べてるうちにボロボロと崩れてくる。味も何だか締まりがない。この店の味が今イチなのか、作ってくれた店員の腕が悪いのか、Benugo全店味が落ちてしまったのか??

I had lunch at London based sandwich chain, Benugo on Great Portland Street near Oxford Circus. Just after we moved in our current apartment, we often went to nearby Benugo in Clerkenwell and on City Road, but now the list of our favorite lunch places is getting longer and we haven’t been to Benugo for a long time, though we went to the Riverfront Café & Bar and Serpentine Bar & Kitchen owned by Benugo. We passed by Great Portland Street the other day and decided to stop by as its rusty old French country canteen-like interior was quite nice.

I remember their freshly made sandwich on order was pretty good, but I had a huge disappointment this time. Panino was not properly toasted, and fell apart with every bite. The taste was kind of blunt and was not as tasty as before. Was the problem just the worker who made it, or all Benugo shops have been deteriorated??
