I stopped in here recently to proudly introduce a friend to a favorite sandwich, the Metro Firehouse – a warm sandwich of smoked turkey and mozz, chipotle aioli, roasted peppers and greens – and ended up with the Ultimate Firehouse, with bacon. Oooh, so good.
We also had a housemade toasted coconut marshmallow. Only $1. I believe all their desserts are made on site, and now there’s flourless chocolate cake and red velvet cupcakes available.
And that’s when I also learned that Friday lunch time serves up housemade gyros. They make their own gryo meat from scratch, which one of the owners decided was necessary when she saw that commercially produced gryo meat contained msg. We tried some of the gyro and it was juicy and delicious with just the right amount of spice. The sandwich costs just under $9 and is only served Fridays at lunch.
We returned there, quickly, on a Friday to try the whole sandwich and it is now my favorite in town. Being made from scratch goes a long ways in my book.
Metropulos also has the widest variety of Vosges chocolates in town, including Mo’s Bacon Bar, and Naga (milk chocolate with sweet curry).
Or if you’ve spent time in Italy or Spain, you can indulge in some of their delicacies with Metro’s imported foods, ranging from deli meats and cheeses, to sea salts, pastas, rice and sweets.
The drink and frozen case has wine, fabulous imported beers, meat pot pies and ice cream It’s Its.
And if you’re in the market for a good balsamic, this shop has a great range to choose from, for all types of budget.
