I had my first Turkey Roll in 1960 while I was working with National Cash Register, it was a weekly trip for one of our service technicians to pick up a dozen turkey rolls while on a call, to feed the the hungry at the office.
My grand daughter picked up two for me, last week,and the taste is exactly the same....delightful. Great job. The first ones were 15 cents each. Well worth it.
This little gem in the city center is a go-to for a quick bite. Quite possibly the best Turkey&Dressing Sandwiches that I have had, and the onion rings are drool worthy.
Personally someone who prefers to support local, this is a great alternative to chain fast food options and they really do not put much of a dent in the wallet.
If you're looking for a traditional Newfoundland chip shop, this is it. Fish and chips, FDG, chicken and chips, classic baked goods, this place has it all. My personal favourite: the Hot Turkey Deluxe - fresh turkey between two slices of bread with a side of fries, green peas and the best dressing in town, all smothered in gravy...my mouth's watering now just thinking about it. They also have a variety of home made pies, cookies, flakies and more, along with the best cold plate fixings going.
Serious, go try this place, you really won't be disappointed.
Go there now and order the cold plate. Best cold plate in the city. Try and finish it! Ham, actual roast turkey, salads, a bun, the requisite leaf of lettuce and slice of tomato...it's all there.
