IKE'S LOVE AND SANDWICHES

IKE'S LOVE AND SANDWICHES

I was so happy when I found out that Ike's Sandwiches from San Francisco was opening in the Ala Moana Shopping Center.  We visit San Francisco and always try to make it to Ike's to stand in line for a great sandwich.  On one visit we ordered the $20 Kryptonite Sandwich in San Francisco which is $40 at Ala Moana. The giant sub lasted two days and we loved it.  Ike's is located in The Lanai which is across from Macy's.  The small shop had one gal on the register and two guys making sandwiches in back.  The gal was smiling and friendly and she made recommendations which was nice.  Our sandwiches came out in a few minutes and I was rushing to have my first bite.  I ordered the Alan Wong ($12) on Dutch Crunch Bread and with everything including Onion, JalapeƱo and Pickles. The sandwich is filled with Ham, Roast Beef, Turkey, Pastrami, Provolone and God Father Sauce.  My first bite was heaven.  Loved it and then after a few more bites I thought this was just an "ok" sandwich.  Good but not as I remember in San Francisco.  The bread seemed a little different to me.  I did not even finish half of one half of the sandwich.  I tried a bite of the Dirty Reuben ($12) with everything plus the Onions, JalapeƱos and Pickles. This sandwich included Roast Beef, Purple Slaw, Dirty Dressing and American Cheese. Not bad but I thought the Alan Wong was tastier.  My Wife polished off half of the Dirty Reuben and seemed to like it.  Our Onion Rings ($4.94) were a bit burnt but still tasted ok.  I got them with a side of BBQ Sauce but the BBQ Sauce is way too overpowering so I abandoned it.  Mixed feelings about Ike's Ala Moana.  I really need to go back on another day and eat here again before I make any conclusions or recommendations.  One thing is that I think the price is fair for size, quality and location.
