Gram and Papa's grilled Chicken Salad Sandwich

Today’s PhotoBite is from a recent lunch at Gram and Papa’s in downtown L.A.

The food:

  • grilled chicken salad sandwich with heirloom tomatoes and iceberg lettuce on a fresh pretzel bun ($9, pictured above)
  • gram and papa’s chopped salad: kenter farm premium salad mix, house-roasted turkey breast, carrots, beets, goat cheese, dried sour cherries, candied walnuts, vinaigrette ($8 half, $10 full, pictured below)
  • new sandwich from Chef Ludo Lefebvre, Ludo’s Parisian Sandwich: imported Paris ham, emmenthal cheese, honey butter, cornichon and radish on a toasted baguette ($10.50, limited menu item, pictured below)
  • salty goodness side: house-made potato chips (pictured at bottom)

Some feedback:

  • everything is freshly made to order; salads can be customized
  • Gram & Papa’s philosophy is to use carefully-sourced and fresh ingredients — and it shows
  • huge portions (we split two sandwiches and a full salad, took half our sandwich home, and left stuffed, but ordered so much because of a 30% BlackboardEats discount — seriously, if you haven’t signed up for BBE yet, get on over there!)
  • worth-going-back rating: definitely.

I can't do it. $10 for a sandwich? We had $15 prix-fixe dinner at Little Dom's last night. Last Sunday, I had a $3.75 Vietnamese lunch including house-produced cha lua and on-site blended rau ma. Geebuz!
