REVIEW: The Coronation on Onion Bloomer by EAT

£3.75 – Onion Seed Bloomer, Spiced Cauliflower, Mango Chutney, Flaked Almonds, Sultanas, Spinach, Vegan Mayonnaise

Hey, how are you? Good weekend? Yeah not bad, didn’t get up to much. How about you? Yeah pretty quiet one myself. Okay, now that’s out of the way let’s crack on. Sorry, there was no post on Friday, but that was because I don’t have to explain myself you, that’s why.

Today I went to EAT. They have put out quite the festive range – including some sort of roast beef dinner in a Yorkshire pudding wrap! Maybe one for another time, because we’re here for sandwiches goddammit and EAT have a few to chose from. But I had to overlook 2016’s winner – The Full Festive Works Bloomer – because of the stupid no meat hierarchy I’m enforcing on myself. I saw the brie and cranberry veggie Christmas option and quite fancied that but no – there was a vegan option so I must eat it. And it’s that most Christmassy flavour of all…curried cauliflower?

Once again I have forgotten to take a photo of the sandwich and this time I only realised after I had eaten it! This was all so much easier when I worked from home and had time to dick about on a sandwich blog. So please look at this image from EAT’s website, imagine it looking a bit more squashed and with more spinach hanging out the sides. Are you imagining it? Good.


So what is it like? Very good actually – pretty much like a coronation chicken sandwich. I’ve never really thought of swapping out cauliflower for meat, but it works. And I’m a broccoli guy in the great broccoli vs cauliflower war that has claimed so many lives. What a senseless war. But as much as I Iike this sandwich, there is one issue – how is coronation anything Christmassy? Boxing day? Maybe. The rest of the whole year? Of course. But Christmas? No. I’m not sure how was responsible for this decision at EAT, but they have got it all wrong. And what’s with the mysterious name? What didn’t they mention the cauliflower? Everything about this is strange. Great sandwich though.

Okay, byeeeeeeeeeeeee.
