On our last trip to the Village Haus Restaurant, we tried the 1/3 Angus Pastrami Cheeseburger. That dish left us underwhelmed, but we got an up-close-and-personal view of the Village Haus menu. And there, I spotted an item that’s intrigued me ever since.
I’m talking about BLT Flatbread.
I mean … I know what a BLT is. I know what flatbread is. What I can’t quite figure out is what the execution looks like. Is this another hyper-lazy concoction, like the Mac & Cheese Dog? Or are they doing something more sophisticated, here?
So we order, collect our food, and find a table.
My first impression is positive. The ingredients look somewhat quality. It’s reasonably-sized. Perfect for two people. And it’s been (thoughtfully) pre-sliced for sharing.
The first bite is also very positive. The crust is thin and sturdy. It tastes like they’re using a biscuit dough. The slice doesn’t have a lot of sauce, but that’s OK. There’s bacon scattered about. A modest amount of cheese holds everything together. And for veg, there’s shaved fennel, arugula, and caramelized onion. Everything comes together, and does its job.
I liked this. It’s quite good, and pretty satisfying. Elaine was not as impressed than I was, but we agree that it’s recommended. There’s a lot of standard-issue pizza in the parks, but this is a cut above. Give it a shot.
UPDATE: As of July 2017, Village Haus Restaurant has been rebranded as “Red Rose Taverne.” This dish is no longer available.
