Chachi’s – Pulled Pork with Mac Sandwich
I don’t spend much time at Metrotown anymore… it’s just so busy and crowded! On a rare occasion that we found ourselves in Metrotown in April, we noticed a new sandwich joint had opened up in the food court called Chachi’s.
Now, I like a good sandwich when I find one. The one thing that I can’t stand, however, is a hyped up sandwich (like Meat & Bread).
Chachi’s was quite busy when we visited. The menu choices probably had something to do with that since they had some interesting options. We got the Pork w/ Mac ($11) with pulled pork, sweet chili bbq sauce, and topped with mac ‘n cheese on top of a ciabatta bun. We also added a Big Pickle ($1.50) and a Chachi Palmer ($3.50) to round out our meal.
$11 is a bit steep for a sandwich but the pulled pork was pretty good. I think they relied a bit too much on the tangy bbq sauce for my liking. The pork had a bit of a smoky taste to it and was topped with mac ‘n cheese. Unfortunately, I found the mac ‘n cheese to be just okay and nothing really spectacular. I feel like if you’re going to put mac ‘n cheese in your sandwich, it better be a damn good mac ‘n cheese. This one lacked the creaminess that would have made this a really great ‘wich.
I was a bit disappointed with the big pickle. Yes, it was crunchy but the delivery really needs to be worked on. It came sliced up in a brown paper bag. You guessed it… pickle juice was everywhere with no real thought of how someone is supposed to eat this without getting pickle juice everywhere.
I did really enjoy the Chachi Palmer (their version of an Arnold Palmer) which was a mix of lemonade and iced tea.
Overall, the sandwich here was a bit overpriced for the quality but I’d probably try them again to see if any of their other sandwiches are better. If you’re looking for a really good sandwich, try Big Star Sandwich Company in New West.
