Seems like Sandwich Shops are popping up all over Honolulu.  Out of three that we have visited during the past month (Earl, Kaimuki Superette and Sprout), Earl was by far the best.  Located in Kaimuki near Big City Diner and in the location that used to serve BBQ, Earl delivers some pretty good sandwiches at reasonable prices.  We arrived to find a family in front of us looking at the menu board.  They had questions about everything.  The bread, the toppings, the sauces, the tastes, the sides and on an on.  I was getting impatient because they had not even ordered but were holding up the line.  The gal at the counter to her credit calmly answered each and every question without interrupting or rushing the family.  She was friendly and professional.  The other guys in the kitchen saw what was happening and that there were more people waiting and came to the window to help.  I placed my order with the guy and another gentlemen welcomed me and said he appreciated our patience.  I ordered the French Dip ($9) and thought it was delicious.  The Beef, Gruyere Cheese, Dijon and Fennel Onion Marmalade all worked together to deliver flavor and great taste.  The Au Jus was not really needed.  It was a bit bland anyway.  The Jamestown ($8.50) included Turkey, Mayo, Dijon, Curried Yams, Lettuce, Tomato and Cranberry Sauce.  Both me and my daughter thought that it was a bit too sweet with too much Cranberry Sauce.  The CB Sauce made the bread soggy and took away from the great taste of the turkey and bacon that we added for an additional $2.  What was really good here was the Spicy Caprese ($6).  Spicy buttered Ciabatta, Vine Ripened  Tomato, Mozzarella, Fresh Basil, Crushed Red Pepper, EVOO and a Balsamic Reduction.  This was great!  Incredible flavor that just popped in my mouth.  Loved the Balsamic and Fresh Basil.
