Happy Chinese New Year!!!!
It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I finally have time to blog! Yesterday we had to head down to Abbotsford for work related purposes and we were so happy that the weather was so gorgeous. After finishing up with business in Abbotsford, we decided to choose a local restaurant to try out. When we went through Urbanspoon, the ratings for O’Neills Home Cooking was very good, so we decided to give that place a try!
O’Neill’s Home Cooking is located in Gosling Way. This place is really close to Duft & Co Bakehouse. At first glance, interior is rather dull and doesn’t have much character but when we first stepped in, the host greeted us and knew right away we were first timers (I guess it’s because I wasn’t sure what to do when I first entered and looked rather confused??)! We were fully introduced to the menu by her and she was extremely friendly and helpful! Her service made me feel very comfortable in this place and definitely gave me a home vibe. Everyday they have different type of specials, yesterdays special was Potato leek & garlic soup & Shepherds pie.
At first me & Phil wanted to order two separate sandwiches so we can try different things but the host advised us that the sandwiches are HUGE! At first we weren’t sure how big it’ll be so we were pretty indecisive. After a few seconds of hesitation, a big man came over (aka. one of the customers) he came over and had to wrap up most of his meal and he was already sharing his with his buddy! After seeing that occurring, we finalized on our decision and just ordered one sandwich plus combo (additional $4.00, which came with soup & drink).
We decided to order “The Classic” which consists of Toasted golden sweet potato bun, black forest ham, cooked egg, cheese & mayo ($6.00)
The sandwich and soup was split between me and Phil so we both got a half sandwiched with a bowl of soup.
First off, we got the Potato, Leek & Garlic Soup. The picture you see below is the half bowl of soup. There was actually a lot of soup in the bowl for each of us and was pretty shocked at the amount considering it was already been split. The soup was very comforting.
Here’s the sandwich! The black forest ham used here is the thick ham and I love it! It was so perfectly cut and the overall sandwich tasted amazing! Phil and I were down to our last few bites and we were both SO FULL. Half a sandwich was definitely enough for each of us! Overall it was a fantastic sandwich and I will definitely come back here again.
