Mendocino Farms Sandwich Market Coming To Costa Mesa
I am so excited about this restaurant! There have been several new sandwich shops that have opened near my house this past year but “gourmet” is not something I would refer to them as.
But there IS a new gourmet sandwich shop coming to OC this summer summer and it is called Mendocino Farms. MF is the Los Angeles-based restaurant recognized for its commitment to the art of the sandwich and its use of seasonal ingredients from local Southern California farmers. The restaurant will open the doors to its first Orange County location at 450 E. 17th St. in Costa Mesa on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 11 a.m. The new eatery will bring the restaurant’s lauded menu of: farm-fresh sandwiches, salads, seasonal sides and soups.
A perk for kids is that there will be a signature Mendocino Farms kids’ corner with a communal table and interactive chalkboard walls.
Serving lunch and dinner seven days a week, the menu will include signature sandwich favorites like :
- The Pork Belly Banh Mi, a playful reinterpretation of the Vietnamese classic made with rich, caramelized Kurobuta Pork Belly
- The Not So Fried Chicken, a lighter version of a cold fried chicken sandwich with shaved free range chicken breast, Mendo’s krispies (which mimic a crunchy fried chicken buttermilk batter), herb aioli, juicy tomatoes, pickled red onions, and mustard pickle slaw served with a side of house made barbeque sauce.
- Salads include the Kale Caesar, a healthier version of a classic Caesar salad featuring Scarborough Farms butter lettuce and romaine, crispy wheatberries, and fresh local kale massaged with a light lemon parmesan vinaigrette.
- Younger Mendo fans can choose from kids’ menu items such as PB&J with housemade peanut butter and strawberry rhubarb jam from Coldwater Canyon Provisions, served with a side of fresh fruit and a drink.
Mendocino Farms Sanwich Market will be open for lunch and dinner starting Friday, May 30
Monday-Sunday 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. They are located at: 450 E. 17th St. Costa Mesa, CA 92627 949.548.2500
