A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Foumami is a new place I was introduced to recently. It’s an Asian sandwich bar located in downtown crossing. They have a variety of interesting salad and sandwich choices. If you go on a cold day, try one of their tasty soups!

The decor is sleek and minimal-it feels like an upscale cafeteria. You order at the counter and seat yourself.  Everything is made to order and super fresh. Check out their menu here.

I had the Sesame Noodle Salad: Buckwheat noodles, egg omelet, bean sprouts, kirby cucumber, carrots, scallions, cilantro, sesame peanut dressing, $7.55. It’s a pretty decent sized salad. The vegetables are crunchy and fresh. The noodles are tasty. I can’t finish the whole thing! All salads come with their signature scallion pancake, which weren’t my favorite. I was disappointed that they weren’t fresher, they were a little too crispy for my taste-and quite flavorless.

My dining companion had the Marinated Rib Eye steak sandwich, $7.95. Grilled soy garlic marinated ribeye steak, sautéed onions, romaine lettuce. All sandwiches are served on our freshly baked Shao Bing bread- crisp and flaky on the outside- chewy and soft on the inside. It’s a little like flat bread-really a delicious sandwich. I love bulgogi, so this was basically bulgogi in a sandwich! YUM!

The line moved quickly in the lunch rush and there was no problem getting a seat. Service was friendly and efficient. A definite go back and try everything else on the menu kind of place.
