Today, I want to tell you about a little sandwich shop called East Hampton Sandwich Co. According to their website,
East Hampton Sandwich Co. is a restaurant specializing in handcrafted sandwiches, salads, and snacks, with proteins and sauces made in-house. The chef-driven, fast casual concept, provides a refined approach towards it’s menu, beer & wine bar, and catering services. Perfect for lunch or dinner, we promise to impress with our offerings.
And impress, they do! There are currently only two locations and they’re both in North Texas. Their hours of operation are from 11 AM to 9 PM daily.
6912 Snider Plaza – Dallas, TX 75205
7300 Lone Star Drive, Suite C128 – Plano, TX 75024
The original location is located near University Park and Southern Methodist University. If you’re from this area then you know that’s in the Uptown area. The second location is at the Shops of Legacy in Northern Plano. East Hampton is not your typical sandwich shop. Just by their location in affluent areas alone, you know you’re going to be paying more for your sandwich. However, with the ingredients that they are offering – you should be.
Their signature sandwich is the Lobster Roll. They use knuckle, claw meat and split lobster tail. Chives, micro greens and butter round out the rest of this sandwich. Their other sandwiches are no less impressive.
Sandwiches such as…
Fried Chicken and Jack
Meyer Lemon Chicken
Hot Cheese and Short Rib
The average sandwich is around $10. The breads that they use are amazing. I am not a bready kind of girl, but I love their breads. You don’t get a choice, I should tell you. They pair the breads for you. They do a really good job so you won’t be disappointed. Their ciabatta bread is my favorite. It’s so light and chewy.
East Hampton has a beverage selection that will make everyone happy. There’s draft beers, wine, cocktails, soda and the southern stable, tea. Since, I’ve only had lunch here during the work week, I haven’t ordered anything alcoholic. Thus, I can’t tell you anything about it. If you’ve had the pleasure, please let me know.
The yumminess that you are about to see is the result of multiple visits to this restaurant. I thought I should mentioned that little fact. I did not want you thinking I was a total porker. Although, if I could order more than one sandwich and eat it all – I would!
This is the Spiced Shrimp Roll. Chopped shrimp, roasted corn, greens, cracked pepper, red chili vinaigrette in a buttered roll. What is this type of roll/bun called? You know what I’m talking about. The buns that are used with the lobster rolls. Whatever it’s called it was delicious. The vinaigrette was very light. Not heavy and mayonnaisey at all. It was almost like eating a salad with a really large and soft crouton!
This is the turkey, bacon and avocado sandwich. Enough said. Look how thick the slices of turkey are. Can you see the thick cut bacon? There is nothing to not like about this one. That’s not ranch by the way. It’s garlic sage aioli. What? I know, right?! I slathered the ends of my sandwich with the sauce so that every time I took a bite, I got some of that garlic sage deliciousness. I even dipped my kettle chips in it. Oh my…
This beauty is what East Hampton calls the Cuban. Ciabatta bread, brown sugar ham, roast pork, swiss cheese, pickles and something they call mojo sauce. This sandwich was juicy and bursting with flavor. The poor ciabatta couldn’t handle all that meat and cheese. It kept trying to escape.
This is a beef tenderloin sandwich. Thick slices of tenderloin, cherry balsamic glaze, crispy onion strings, blue cheese and rosemary au jus. I didn’t get a chance to ask what the bread is, but it looks to be their version of the sesame side bun. I did not have the pleasure of enjoying this sandwich, because as you know, I am trying not to eat red meat if there are other options. However, according to my friends Krista and Charlotte, it was AMAZING!
This is the Goat Cheese and Avocado Sandwich. This is one of 2 vegetarian options at East Hampton. This sandwich has micro greens, local goat cheese, avocado, yellow tomatoes and red pepper aioli on a sesame seed bun. I am not a big goat cheese fan, but I’m told it was really good. The cheese was not over powering and as goatty as some can be. They’re really generous on their goat cheese, aren’t they?
This is the Roast Chicken and Ranch Sandwich. This sandwich consisted of pulled chicken breast, Italian parsley, roasted carrots, purple onion, spring mix, and ranch dressing on ciabatta bread. Doesn’t that look good?
This bad boy is the Hot Cheese and Short Rib Sandwich. This sandwich was amazing! It’s pretty much a steak sandwich. You’ve got your bread, hot melty white cheddar cheese, sliced short ribs, caramelized onions, micro greens and horseradish cream sauce. SO GOOD!
And here ladies and gentlemen is the pièce de résistance. This is the Lobster Roll. Isn’t it beautiful??? There is nothing puny about this sandwich. It’s full of claw, knuckle and split tail meat. Along with chives and micro-greens, it’s bursting out of the buttered brioche bun. Well, I’m not actually sure it’s a brioche bun, because the menu didn’t say. However, it has all the appearances of a brioche bun. Doesn’t it? No really. Tell me what you think.
I had a hard time getting into this sandwich. It was definitely bigger than my mouth. I wasn’t sure how I should start. I drizzled the clarified butter on top and just kind of squished the sandwich down to the appropriate size. It was so good! You can definitely taste the lobster meat. The dressing on it is so light that you don’t really notice that there’s anything but lobster.
I would definitely order this sandwich again. However, with my budget, it will probably be an every once in a while meal rather than a once a day one!
I hope you enjoyed this post. If you get a chance to visit East Hampton you should order everything!
