Frankie’s on 4th – Opening Soon

Brisbane’s sandwich obsession is spreading ever further outward, with a brand-new sambo concept set to officially open in Sandgate in mid-April. Frankie’s on 4th is the name of the cosy pit stop, which will be replacing Salad Days – a long-running carvery and salad spot – on Fourth Avenue. Operated by the crew behind beloved bar Mr Henderson (which is located just next door), Frankie’s is not only giving the team the opportunity to fill the gap left by Salad Days, but also improve Mr Henderson’s own offering. Last month the bar launched a taqueria-style menu out of the Frankie’s kitchen, serving the likes of pork and charred-pineapple tacos, prawn tostadas and churros. Now, the kitchen will also be put to use crafting a small and simple menu of sandwiches done well. If you were lucky enough to catch the sandwich bar doing a trial run last week, you’d have been able to sink your teeth into the likes of the chicken schnitzel sandwich (panko-crumbed chicken breast, iceberg lettuce and herb mayo on fresh white bread), the brisket cheesesteak (slow-cooked beef brisket birria with queso and sauteed capsicum on a hoagie-style roll), the Cubano (thinly sliced mojo pork with Swiss cheese, mustard and pickles), the classic deli-style sandwich (packed with ham, salami, fresh tomato, Italian-style aioli and gem lettuce with balsamic). Once open, the team estimates that the Frankie’s menu could expand to include up to eight sandwiches, including vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options, with salads and fresh juices also potentially on the cards further down the line.
