    The tuna sandwich, seared and cooked rare is excellent! Everything at this restaurant is good though!

    Took a guest the last Sunday afternoon. He ordered the tenderloin sandwich. He barely could manage cutting the meat with a knife it was so overcooked. All other meals were satisfactory at best.

    South Union bread, great meat counter and coffee selections. Usually good produce, though some specials are not often so great. A good stop for many items, probably won't be your only grocery store.

    A word to the wise: Huy Fong foods is the original Sriracha, Sambal Oelek, and Chili Garlic Sauce company (one brilliant ex-pat Vietnamese). Note the green tops and the rooster - those are Huy Fong's!
