The household has been frequently ordering these delicious looking sandwiches but never giving me a bite. Finally I dropped in to discover these were called Korean sandwiches.

What is a Korean sandwich?

Called Gilgeori Toast, meaning street toast, is a popular grab-and-go egg sandwich typically filled with cabbage and various sliced vegetables for a crunchy texture that’s both sweet and savory. Check out this recipe if you want to make it yourself. 

A take on the Korean Style Sandwhich

I visited Tealicious Blend in St Albert and was immediately welcomed by a bright and warm environment. Appropriate for the season, they had a festive Halloween wall and some decorations adorning the recently moved restaurant. They had moved a few months ago from their previous and smaller location further up North in the town.

Since this move they’ve introduced and expanded the menu from just drinks to a variety of finger foods and sandwhiches. Standing in line I could see several customers chatting joyfully with the staff whom I later found out was the owner. There is quite the established and supportive community here.

For my haul I ordered the Teriyaki Beef sandwich and the Bacon Avocado version for Vicky.

Each sandwich comes wrapped in a wax paper for easy hand holding and slotted in a cute paper sleeve branded with the Tealicious Blend brand and a cute image wishing you a nice day. 

Each sandwich was absolutely tasty, both sweet and savory. I quickly devoured mine and gladly assisted Vicky in finishing her leftover portion.

I will definitely be looking to work through the menu of sandwiches this store has!
