This new sandwich shop opened in Irvine called Phoney Baloney (awesome name, right?). It’s a little hard to find. You first have to find this gym, then go inside, and you’ll see the counter immediately on the right. They have a small seating area where you can feel guilty by watching people work out.
I got the Cali BBQ ($5,95): grilled Phoney’s beef slathered in cherry chipotle BBQ sauce and topped with slaw, pickles, and mustard on a sourdough sandwich roll. I love sandwiches in general, but I really loved this sandwich. The roll was a tad bit thick and hard to bite into, but other than that, the taste was wonderful.
And of course I had to try their Strawberry Cookie Monster – a spring sandwich special. If they are still offering this sandwich, you have to try it! It’s fresh strawberries, cookie butter, cream cheese, and agave drizzle that’s panini pressed between two slices of whole wheat sourdough. Genius combination.
Good luck trying to find this gem. It’s worth it!
