The South End has a little lamb
Scrawled cheerfully in blue and pink chalk across the blackboard wall is Flour Bakery + Café’s motto, which reminds customers to “make life sweeter ... eat dessert first!” Good advice, but I’d add “savor the moment ... leave room for lunch!”
Joanne Chang’s South End bakery has won numerous accolades, among them praise for her gourmet sandwiches. If I had to guess, I’d wager that the tasters were won over by the roasted-lamb sandwich ($6.95) — although the applewood-smoked bacon from Flour’s BLT sends an intoxicating, head-turning aroma wafting through the café. Beyond earning merit points for simply being a creative blend of foods, the combination of rare roasted lamb, tangy goat cheese, and sweet and vinegary homemade tomato chutney (studded with onions, golden raisins, and currants) leaves us with one question: dessert, or a second sandwich? Wise patrons will order both.
