The very first bout in the Wich Trials is a battle of heavyweights with different styles. In the red corner, representing a perfect lunch date and filled with bacon, turkey and ham on toasted bread with veggies and cheese is The Café Club from New Moon Café on Broad Street in the J.B. Whites building. The Café Club is a wonderful way to charge up halfway through your workday. The crispiness of the bacon coupled with ample portions of ham and turkey laid under lettuce and tomato between three slices of fresh bread makes this particular wich the epitome of what one looks for in a great midday meal.
And in the blue corner, just a stone’s throw down Broad Street is the hefty Black Eye Chicken of Knuckle Sandwiches. The Black Eye Chicken is loaded with enough grilled chicken, cheese and peppers to make two sandwiches. Cap off the experience with thai chili sauce and you have a sandwich that will hit you in the mouth and gut. Whereas one would enjoy a Café Club at one in the afternoon, the Black Eye Chicken is a gut busting good meal at 1 a.m. after an evening perusing the great bars in downtown Augusta. Nothing beats mulling over an evening of possibly questionable decisions with the comfort of the ultimate comfort sandwich.
Now it is time for me to ask you, our audience, to engage with us in discussion on the Creases Community Facebook page, and our threads on reddit.com/r/augusta to help us decide which of these dichotomous wiches will head to our four-way royal rumble in a few months.
