Last weekend I was doing some shopping in Bethesda and wanted to grab a quick sandwich for lunch to bring home. I heard the new Taylor Gourmet was really good and I have seen the place look packed before so I thought I'd give it a shot.
The menu definitely has a lot to offer with over 20 signature hoagies as well as chicken cutlet and vegetarian sandwiches. I decided to get the Race Street hoagie which has turkey, prosciutto, pesto and mozzarella. It was a great combination of ingredients but there was one major, MAJOR flaw...I couldn't get through the bread. The hoagie was so thick and hard it was like gnawing on a hockey puck. I actually had to use all of the strenth in my jaws as well as my biceps to rip through this bread. If I wanted to feel barbaric, I would have gotten a damn turkey leg at the Renaissance Festival or go to Medieval Times. This was obnoxious. It was so bad that I actually got slices of my own bread and transferred the toppings- which were just ok.
I'm sorry Taylor Gourmet, but epic FAIL. I give you 1 fork out of 5. Thumbs down.
