Cheap Eats: The Beet Down Sandwich

It’s been a hectic few days, guys.  I hate moving, and I’m going to have to do it twice this month (woe is me).  I just left my apartment in Fenway for a new place for the month of August in glorious Allston.  Good for me, as there are so many new restaurants in my area to try and a 24–hour supermarket right next door that puts the one near my old place to shame. The only downside is I will miss Tasty Burger, I was pretty obsessed with it.

Bye, Bye, midnight burger trips

With all the moving going on, there hasn’t been much time to cook, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been much time to eat.  There’s always time. A good friend of mine turned me onto The Beetdown sandwich at Pavement Coffee House, and, while it’s no burger, it’s refreshing and delicious and makes me feel healthy without being boring.


Roasted turkey, shredded beets in balsamic, goat cheese, sliced green apples, and arugula all sing on toasted wheat bread.  This sandwich is addicting, a revelation in sandwiches.  It’s filling without being overbearing, and has a bunch of different textures. It’s just awesome. It’s also under $10. So whether you’re moving or just looking for something for lunch one day, I’d swing by and try the sandwich.  Pavement also has great tea (I’m not a huge fan of their coffee, but that’s no surprise as I don’t enjoy coffee anyways), so try that. All three locations are in the Back Bay area, while my favorite is on Newbury. If you see me there in the morning, don’t be afraid to say hi!
