Tuckerbox (White River Junction, VT)

You know something’s going on when you get several recommendations for not just a place, but a particular menu item, all in a short period. It usually means something’s going pretty well indeed. In this case, in the last week, two different people both recommended Tuckerbox in White River Junction. And, more specifically, they recommended the BLT, since it was the “Best BLT Ever!” The Tuckerbox, for those that don’t know of it, inhabits one of those restaurant spaces that I consider mildly cursed, since, in my 7 years of living here, it’s the third restaurant that has inhabited the space (the first two were Karibu Tule, an oustanding African place; and Como Va, an Italian place).

It’s a truly exhaustive list of sandwiches, with over 200 different sandwiches…

During discussion with my parents, they mentioned that it’s one of their favorite lunch spots, so we decided to go there for lunch on my way to the airport…
