‘Gimme an Ovitt with everything’


Back in February I wrote a few lines in my column about the debut of the Ovitt Meatloaf Sandwich, served at the Page One Cafe adjoining Ontario’s Ovitt Family Community Library (215 E. C St). But I didn’t present a photo.

Let me rectify that oversight with this loving photo of the sandwich ($7.50), which consists of sliced meatloaf on a sourdough roll dressed with garlic butter, sliced provolone, shredded parmesan and horseradish mayo. It’s named for Gary Ovitt, the current county supervisor and former mayor for whom meatloaf was a childhood favorite.

Supporting your local library is rarely this delicious — or is this fattening.

    I like my Ovitt sandwich with all the fixings but hold the bad jokes, please.

    This glorious creation completely makes up for the previously featured sandwich with pineapple and (I can barely type it) mayo. I abhor pineapple on anything savory, but had no idea how it could be worse until I saw the Aussie sandwich with mayo.

    And I had always considered Autralians to be down-to-earth, “just here for a good time” blokes. Now I am suspicious of them. And it’s not just this sandwich — according to Wikipedia, more pizzas with pineapple are sold in Australia than anywhere else in the world.

    You should Yelp this! See link.

    Are you a Yelp-er, Dave?

    I’m a vegetarian and I thought that the reason the meatloaf sandwich was named after Gary Ovitt was because the ground meat in that meatloaf is full of fecal matter, just like most politicians are.

    I don’t care much for eating meatloaf in restaurants, because it is loaded with fillers that make it taste like cardboard. I abhor buffet restaurants more than any dish. I have been having to eat at Hometown Buffet every other month, for the R.P.E.A. lunch meetings–I had found that meatloaf is the best, main dish they have. When I eat there again in August, I think I might have a hard time, if I think back, and recall Dennis’s comment. Thanks a lot, Dennis.
