YIELD: 1 sandwich
About 800 of these snack-size sandwiches, priced at $4.99, are sold in the University of Richmond’s Passport Café, and the unique, locally made sauce takes the slider from simple to spectacular.
KimKim sauce, a Korean style hot sauce, is made by a local UR alum. The sweet, spicy flavor “pairs well with the shallot mayo and really elevates the sandwich,” says Karen Kourkoulis, chef/manager of Passport Café.
“It’s been selling like crazy,” she says. The sandwich’s fun size and the bold flavor are the main reasons for its popularity, Kourkoulis reckons. “It’s perfect for snacking between meals,
as our students love to do.”
