Also available through catering – at another club – was food from Potbelly Sandwich Works. The Mushroom Melt Sandwich was decent. I liked the melted cheese, which included Swiss, provolone, and cheddar, over the cooked mushrooms, making them quite savory. The lettuce and tomatoes also had that nice toasted taste. The roll was very chewy and slightly tough, like a nice and soft baguette without such a thick crust. Overall, it was simple but delicious for a hoagie, though I have never been much of a fan of subs or hoagies and sandwiches of this type.
The Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie was decent – not too sweet and with gooey chocolate chips. I actually liked the oatmeal texture to make it more interesting. It was a huge cookie and quite soft. I definitely could have used something sweeter but it was decent.
I liked the Sugar Cookie better though, with crystal sugar on top adding sweetness and a nice crunchy texture. The cookie dough itself was simply sweet with a nice buttery taste. It was also soft and moist, though I think it could have been thinker and even softer and moister.
Again, I would probably not go to Potbelly Sandwich Works on my own just because I do not like hoagies or sandwiches on rolls and generally stay away from sliced processed meat. However, I do think this is a better option – and pricier too, I guess – than chain restaurants like Subway and Quiznos, though with less choices.
