Review - Knuckles Sandwich Bar



Alex Harmon gives you the lowdown on where to get a sanga in Alexandria...



It’s the inkblot test – whether you think of a knock to the face, or a succulent hock of pork. Although here, co-owner Diana Thompson assures us,  “Knuckles is just a fun and easy to remember name.



The sandwich bar lies amongst factories in the industrial fashion precinct of Alexandria, and it’s seriously the only decent place to get a sanga on McEvoy Street. With that in mind, you must try the Veal Schnitzel Ciabatta Roll ($12) made fresh to order with lemon aioli, rocket and Parmesan. Everything is made fresh here, Diana tells us, because there’s “nothing worse than a toasted sandwich with warm lettuce.” Agreed.



However don’t neglect the burgers! The Cheeseburger ($10) is popular (and cheap!) with a sesame milk bun. They have a golden crust that reminds me of the old school milk bars. Speaking of which, you must order a side of Hand Cut Chips ($3.50) and the Belgian Chocolate Milkshake ($6.50) to wash it all down.



If all this bread and milk is too much, simply opt for a salad, the Spanish-inspired Grilled Corn Salad ($10) is as healthy as it is colourful, what with quinoa, avocado, radish, toasted pepitas and a spicy lime dressing. Go on, knock yourself out.
