There’s a sub shop in Boulder, CO, called Half Fast Subs. The restaurant is in an old building with high, painted tin ceilings, and is long and narrow with wood floors. The menu is huge, and takes up multiple chalkboards. When you order you’re given a playing card, and the food shows up on your table a few minutes later. Try the Green Turkey; it’s amazing, especially on a toasted wheat sub roll.
Since moving from CO, Louisa hasn’t been able to find a sub like that. Sure, turkey and bacon are common together, but what about salsa and cream cheese, avocado, tomato, sprouts? Well, there’s this wonderful little shop in Mt. Pleasant called Mozzo Deli. Mozzo has a sub called Colorado Roots; it’s turkey, bacon, avocado, cream cheese and salsa, tomato and lettuce. If you have it on a sub roll, it’s almost the best sub this side of the Mississippi (at least if you’re craving the Green Turkey from Half Fast). Try it grilled, and the turkey turns smokey and warm from the grill, and the roll gets nice and toasty. Tony said the Balboa was quite tasty as well.
After our pre-Valentine’s Day date there, Louisa dubbed Mozzo Deli “Half Fast East.” And that’s not half bad.
