IT'S A SANDWICH SERIES >>>

Often considered - and awarded - one of the best bars in the South Sound, Top of Tacoma Bar and Café has extended its hours and added new menu items. Included in the menu expansion are 14 new sandwiches - most have been specials over the years and have earned a secured spot on the menu due to their popularity. I ordered a beer specifically to help me through the menu's 26 sandwiches. Twenty-six! Bee's Knees, Jive Turkey, The Old Country, Cuban, Po' Boys - maybe I should have just order its famous nachos and called it good.

Speaking of good, I chose wisely. The Top's grilled sourdough Beast of Burden with a pile of Angus roast beef, layered with sweet caramelized onions and cherry pepper relish, creamy melted havarti cheese had just the right kick of horseradish-herb mayonnaise. Dude.

I know I'm going to catch hell from Pappi Swarner for not spreading the wealth, but if the rest of the new sandwiches are this good, screw Bonney Lake.
