Great Grilled Cheese Off 2019 Competitor: Yapi Mediterranean Subs and Sandwiches
GGCO2019 Contender Yapi Mediterranean Subs and Sandwiches recently opened on Hampton Ave. and Loughborough Ave. Wedged between Princeton Heights and the St. Louis Hills neighborhoods, the family-run restaurant has already made a splash with their Bosnian and Mediterranean-inspired dishes. Especially their cevapi, a traditional Bosnian ground beef sausage dish served with sliced raw onions, sour cream and flatbread, and their "Yapi Burger,"; A huge patty of organic, grass-fed beef piled onto a fluffy roll with lettuce, tomato and thick-sliced onion.
They are entering into the competition this year with a very unique grilled-cheese sandwich: The Mediterranean. It starts with crispy thin slices of fresh baked bread from Europa Market, seared in lamb and beef tallow butter, filled with melty cheeses -- shredded provolone, mozzarella, and a sprinkle of feta -- topped with romaine tomato and house made Italian dressing.
You will be able to sample this and 7 other sandwiches with your pass to the GGCO. You will also get a free Schlafly beer and a cup of tomato soup to pair your sandwich with from Pickleman's Deli! Get your tickets ASAP, because they are limited and usually sell out by the day of the festival: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/56753544379
