Thankfully, the sandwich wasn't blah at all.
Plenty of pronounced peppercorn on the catfish fillet rendered the bites spicy, delicious.
A smattering of cilantro, vinegared carrots, creamy aioli, and flat thin cucumber piled on top.
Good bread - soft, doughy insides with a moderately crusty crust.
The fish only covered about half of the sandwich, but I'm known to make power veggie sandwiches at home, so I was OK with this.
The blood orange lemonade was tangy, different -- a few squirts of honey simple syrup and blood orange purée, topped with lemonade -- it had a salty kick going on that didn't thrill me.
Tasty overall, good prices ($7.25 sandwich, $2.50 drink) -- I'd definitely hit it up again when in USQ.
Oh, and service dude very friendly -- as I was leaving I heard him saying to his colleague, "Hey, now we're getting press on our personalities" as he googled on his iPhone.
