Feel for a ROAST BEEF SANDWICH? Well, there’s a fairly new food truck downtown called Our Heros. They have been around since late December, and we visited them once before, enjoying an Italian cold cut hero.
They have a selection of hot and cold heros, salads and soup, with the food made fresh every day. Nothing here is sitting in the walk-in overnight, like some delis.
The ROAST BEEF SANDWICH caught our eye, and it cost $9.
I know that $9 is not cheap for a hero, but you do get a lot of bang for the buck. On a base of fresh, rare roast beef were long blocks of cheddar cheese, sliced cherry tomatoes, arugula, red onions and horseradish aioli.
Even with all the fillings, the taste of the roast beef and cheddar came through nicely, as did the horseradish aioli. All the ingredients on this sandwich worked together beautifully, and the hero bread held everything together through the last bite.
This was a big, filling hero for lunch. As I said, $9 is not cheap, but it’s about what you would pay for a top-notch roast beef hero at a good deli, after tax.
You can find Our Heros on Wall St by Water St every weekday. They tried other neighborhoods at first, but kept getting chased by the police. The daily specials are still tweeted out, but they are very happy at Wall & Water, and have no plans to leave.
