Who doesn’t love a sandwich? Plenty of people would happily line up for a good one, but what happens when they’re made by one of the best chefs in the city and sold for a good cause? You get Crunchy Mister’s Sandwiches, which returns for its next edition on June 27 and 28 at The Prairie Emporium.
Created by Garrett Martin (formerly the culinary director with Concorde Entertainment Group for restaurants like Major Tom and Pigeonhole), Crunchy Mister’s is a charity pop-up restaurant serving sandwiches with a “French accent.” One of the things that makes Crunchy Mister’s special is Martin’s elevated take on the food, with sandwiches like the lobster roll au poivre with brown butter sauce rather than the typical melted butter, or the Normandy fried chicken sandwich with apples and melted brie on top of crispy fried chicken.
Crunchy Mister’s is popping up at Prairie Emporium on June 27 and 28 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and will be available for dine-in or takeout. All proceeds from the pop-up go to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
