First Try: Brass Tacks Sandwiches

by Sherri Koehler on July 1, 2011

There’s a new sandwich shop in Stumptown and I popped in today to try out one of their sandwiches. Brass Tacks isn’t too far from our house and since I was working from home today, and hungry, it seemed like the perfect time.

This is an omni shop, so if you’re ordering vegan be sure to use the right side of the order form. There is an option to have smoked cashew cheese that is vegan. Also you get the fantastic choices of housemade seitan salami, herb roasted turkey, agave smoked ham, or beanballs. There’s even a gluten-free bread option. All the sauces are vegan as is the bread. The tomato jam is $1 extra; but it is deliciously worth it!

There’s a list of topping choices that invites you to pick as many as you want. It includes: red onions, lettuce, tomato, cucumber slices, pickles, pepperoncinis, mushrooms, black olives, shredded carrots, salt & pepper, jalepenos, or caramelized onions! You can also add avocado for a buck more.

Whew! All that and some crunchy potato chips. Although there’s four really tasty vegan sandwiches on the menu, I decided to do the made-to-order and got a sandwich on a cibatta that had garlic aioli, deli mustard, tomato jam, ham, turkey, cashew cheese, lettuce, red onion, shredded carrots, and pepperoncinis!

And wow, was it fantastic. So fantastic that I made sure to take a picture of it in the middle.

Check out the full menu over on Get Sconed’s blog. Her review and the coincidence of working from home today lead me down to try this out!

We’ll very certainly be back!

Ooh that all sounds tasty! I’m so glad that so many places are having intentionally vegan options now.

Hey! The redesign looks awesome!! Love that font! And tomato jam? Yes, please. I’d pay an extra $1 for that.

It has me thinking I should find some tomato jam recipes. Last year I put up 7 quarts of sauce and 3 cups of dried tomatoes, but some jam sounds like a really good idea. I don’t think I’d run into it before.

Damn… now I want a sandwich…
