If you check out this post, this post or this one, you'll see that I really, really love a good sandwich. I truly believe that a good sandwich is a much more difficult than slapping a bunch of stuff on some bread. I asked one of my friends where was the best place to get a deli sandwich in Chicago, and she told me Z&H Market Cafe was the way to go. Z&H, which stands for Zaleski and Horvath, features breakfast and lunch and offers diners the ability to shop for specialty goods, produce and groceries.
I to take the bus and the train, but my trek to Z&H was well worth the trip. With over 20 sandwiches to choose from, my decision was tough, but I finally settled on the Jamon, Jamon.
This sandwich was just an amazing combination of flavors - serrano ham, manchego cheese, quince paste, dijon mustard, mixed greens and roasted tomato. It was absolutely delicious and I enjoyed every bite.
Z&H carries items like maldon salt, gourmet baking chocolate, and San Marzano tomatoes. They also carry several culinary items made by Chicagoan artisans.
Zaleski and Horvath Market Cafe is a great place to grab a quick bite to eat for breakfast or lunch. However, the shop closes fairly early in the evening and it's off-the-beaten path location may make it difficult for diners to get there.
