Before we went to see Hot Tub Time Machine, we needed to eat. If you’re in the Annex, you’re going to be eating one of two things: Sushi or Sky Blue Sky. It’s kind of ridiculous how many sushi restaurants are in the Annex, but we opted for the Wilco-themed sandwich shop Sky Blue Sky. This was my third visit to the restaurant, the first had me ordering “Hoodoo Voodoo.” The second trip had me securing an order of “Via Chicago.” Of the three, my favourite is still “Hoodoo Voodoo” who’s drippy cheese love and crisp pear was incredible.
“Wishful Thinking,” my latest selection is a close second. The meaty portobello mushrooms were fantastic and beautifully paired with avocado and onion. They even added a checkered wrapping which just adds to the class.
So, to summarize…
Hoodoo Voodoo: 7/10
Wishful Thinking: 6.5/10
Via Chiago: 5/10
If I could go back in time, I’d probably up the rating of Hoodoo Voodoo up to an eight, but I cannot, so these are scaled to my initial reactions of Hoodoo Voodoo.
In addition, I should mention that this time, I paired the sandwich with a cucumber and mint salad, which was the best part of the meal, and that’s saying a lot.
