Tuna melts are another one of those classic sandwiches that I love. Yesterday, I went to Grand Central Bakery in Pioneer Square. I was excited to go to Grand Central Bakery because my friend Keeley works there and it would give me a chance to visit her. When I arrived at GCB, the line was out the door. I got in line and looked around for Keeley but I didn't spot her until I was already halfway through the line. She was bustling around the back room. I was torn between my desire to say hi to a good friend and my desire to order my sandwich. Luckily, I didn't have to choose. Keeley came out of the back room and I was able to give her a hug and get my sandwich. I ordered a Tuna Tosti sandwich, a cup of clam chowder, a triple chocolate cookie and a vanilla Italian soda. The total was around $16 - totally worth it.
Grand Central Bakery's Tuna Tosti was a delight. The bread had the perfect crunch and the cheese was at the point of meltiness where it kind of oozes out of your sandwich when you take a bite. The celery and capers added complexity to the tuna but it did not overwhelm the flavor of the sandwich. It was perfect. I am definitely going to return to Grand Central Bakery for some more.
I was not able to finish the whole sandwich and all of my delicious snacks in one sitting so I took the other half of my sandwich home. Unfortunately, the sandwich was not as awesome at home as it was at Grand Central Bakery. In conclusion, go to Grand Central Bakery get a Tuna Tosti and eat the whole thing there - even if you have to unbutton your pants.
