Looking for somewhere to have a drink and a snack after a sad farewell to a dear neighbor – we were wandering a little bit aimlessly – and we ended up at Mr Nelson’s Sandwich Bar in the Walk arcade off Rokeby Rd in Subiaco.
As I was still mopping up my face after the funeral service, my husband decided a drink was in instant order, and it was delivered promptly – so this is where Mr Nelson’s goes up very high in my estimation – sandwiches and wine!
We shared a smoked salmon bagel filled with creamy cheese, salty capers and lovely fresh smoked salmon.
I’m a kid from the country – and once a week we had corned beef (silverside) – the Reuben sandwich took me back to my childhood – but in retrospect, I think I would have liked to have Mr Nelson’s Reuben sandwich one week and my darling Mum’s silverside with white sauce, cabbage etc. ever other week!
