Sandwich-slinging food truck Now Make Me a Sandwich has announced an opening date for its Greenwood brick-and-mortar restaurant, Valhalla Sandwiches. The new spot, named for the place of honor in Norse mythology where warriors end up when they die in combat, will open September 12 in the building that formerly housed Kalbi Grill Express, a Korean barbecue joint; prior to that it was Kabab House.
Owner Ryan O'Toole says to expect the same sumptuous sandwich menu popularized by the food truck, with options fit for a god like the Valhalla Pork (pulled pork with chipotle barbecue sauce topped with apple jalapeño slaw on a Telera roll) and the Bad Lieutenant (the Valhalla Pork plus bacon, ham, and provolone). But O'Toole says he's also adding salads, fries, and more sides, plus beer and wine upon liquor license application approval.
Now Make Me a Sandwich is the latest in a recent wave of food trucks to go brick-and-mortar, including The Cheese Wizards' Interbay expansion, Sam Choy's Poké to the Max in Hillman City, and Seattle Cookie Counter in Phinney Ridge. The Falafel Salam truck is also searching for a permanent restaurant location.
Valhalla Sandwiches, 8202 Greenwood Ave N, website. Monday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
