Ewe Should Eat this Lamb Sandwich ASAP

Border Springs Farm opened their lamb only stand a few weeks ago in the center of Reading Terminal. Their unnamed sandwich has gotten some recent attention (they can’t call it a gyro because of the limit on gyro stands in RT).

I wasn’t all revved up at the idea of  an undercover gyro, instead I picked something else off the sandwich menu and it ended up being one of the best sandwiches I have had recently.

Although I am not a breakfast person, I was tempted by the lamb sausage,gravy, and biscuit from the breakfast menu, but ultimately chose the pulled lamb shoulder sandwich.

This sandwich comes with a spicy piri piri (hot pepper) sauce and crushed potato chips on a soft, toasted brioche. The lamb was moist, but with no extra fatty pieces. It wasn’t gamy; it tasted like this little lamb was killed at just the right age. And the copious amounts of crispy bits made me a bah-liever.

At $9.50 it is certainly far from the sheepest sandwich in Reading Terminal, but since it is one of the best, I won’t complain. Quite the opposite. Your next meal at Reading should be this sandwich.
