A while ago, I ordered a focaccia with chicken and avocado at our local cafe and was truly disappointed with the quality of the food as the avocado had turned black. It was a pre-made one that had probably been sitting in the display fridge for a couple of days. The so called CHEF just reheated it and handed it to the waitress. I wonder if it is that difficult to put fresh avocado onto the bread just after it is ordered? I would much prefer the quality of cafe food in our town a decade ago before the franchises invaded all the Mum & Pop's small businesses. That time, everything was freshly made on the premises including cakes and the menu was very simple. It would only be sandwiches, toasted fingers and a few light meals. I remember I ordered a serve of toasted fingers on a busy day. The waitress told me that I'd have to wait as it needed to be grilled. It's worth for the wait as I enjoyed the meal thoroughly. It's disappointed to see that my local cafe only emphasis on speed as everything was pre-made that could be served right away and had to forgone the freshness in quality.
Toasted fingers is not in the cafe menu anymore and it is replaced by other gourmet meals such as thick toasted sandwich and focaccia bread. Somehow, I really miss my good old favour of toasted fingers.
Chicken & Avocado Toasted Fingers
2 slices of bread
1 cup of cut up roasted chicken meat
1 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup low-fat grated cheddar cheese
- Butter the bread, top up the bread with chicken and avocado fillings. Seasoned with pepper. Sprinkle enough amount of cheese to cover the bread.
- Place the bread into a grill under high heat until the edge of the bread and the cheese turn golden brown. Cut each of the toast into 3 finger long pieces and serve it with green salad.
