The good gourmet: The Gourmet Store



It was the small crowd of people gathered outside The Gourmet Store that first caught my eye. It was lunchtime and the queue was right back to the door; in fact, you could barely get in the door. But the girl ahead of me convinced me to hang on, as she said that they served the best sandwiches in Kilkenny.

I listened as people ordered to see if I could get the low-down on what was best, but all the requests were different, from a chicken tikka masala wrap (chicken, lettuce, tomato and a tikka masala sauce) to Greek feta cheese (feta, peppers, olives and basil pesto) or a French Brie roll with red onion and Ballymaloe relish. All sandwiches are €3.40.
