Chachi’s is one of the newest sandwich fare at Metropolis at Metrotown in Burnaby. Chachi was founded by Derek Brock and Jason Cunnigham – founders of Jugo Juice back in 1998. After selling it’s stakes to Quebec based MTY Food Group, the duo decided to focus all their attention on Chachi’s Sandwich Bar in 2007. Franchises opened across Calgary. Metrotown is their first location in BC.
Chachi’s offers a selection of sandwiches on ciabatta bread between $10 to $12, breakfast sandwiches, Mac n’ Cheese, salads and sides like chips, pickles and pepperoni.
Mac n’ Cheese: Comes in two different flavors (regular and spicy with Capicollo). The mac n’ cheese is very cheesy and smooth. I particularly enjoyed the subtle heat of the spicy mac n’ cheese with capicollo. This was one of my favorite items on the menu.
Hot Philly Sandwich: Rib steak with bell peppers, onions, jalapeno, garlic aioli, spicy mayo and provolone cheese. I like the rich, hearty flavors of the beef steak with the kick of jalapeno.
Breaky Sandwiches 4.50: Ham and Cheese on an English muffin much like McDonald’s but slightly less greasy.
Clubbin’ Sandwich: BTL sandwich with bacon, turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheddar, garlic aioli, and spicy mayo. It is a good simple sandwich if you are not looking for something fancy.
Banh Mi: Beef brisket, asian marinade, pickled carrots, cilantro, jalapeno and garlic aioli. I was not a fan of this sandwich since the beef brisket was too saucey and overly sweet. There is not enough pickled carrots to keep the sandwich light and fresh. Skip this and go to a real Vietnamese restaurant if you craving a real Banh Mi.
Pork with Mac: Tender pulled pork, sweet chili BBQ sauce topped with mac n’ cheese. This rich sandwich has a good mix of mac and pulled pork. If you are looking for comfort and a filling meal, this one’s a winner!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been hanging out around East Hastings because I grew up in a time where my mother was a seamstress and there were lots of factories around that area. On the corner of this old East Hastings stress is King’s Cafe. This particular Cafe wasn’t anything spectacular, but it was hearty food in a modest restaurant. I can’t believe Red Wagon Vancouver Sunrise neighborhood kept the exterior and interior of the old Cafe and added their own flavours into the mix.
The first thing we ordered was the Crisp Pork Belly Sandwich with pickled vegetable, jalapeño, cilantro, mayo, and all that in a baguette. So in other words, take out all the Vietnamese meat from the Bánh mì and replace it with a fatty pork belly. Coming from a Chinese background I would imagine the pork belly to resemble the Chinese version where the skin is extra crispy and the meat was dry. The Red Wagon version is more juicy. One bite will ensure the oil, fat, and flavours to ooze out.
Next up, Pulled Pork Pancakes. Jack Daniels Maple Syrup with Buttermilk Pancakes layered with pulled pork. WTF, maple syrup with pulled pork? Sweet and savory to me is like a man in women’s clothes. You’re confused as to see if she’s hot or not. I was already suspicious last time Nancy brought home Lindt chocolate with sea salt. This just surpass that on a experimental level food wise.
Fluffy buttery pancakes with pulled pork in between it. All of that sitting on the bed of maple syrup.
I sliced a piece of pancake, pushed the pulled pork on the fork, and slid the combo onto the river of maple syrup. The first taste was like the time I ever had red wine. I tried to savor the moment. I was dazed, and confused. How can these two things that I would never imagined pared up be so good together. The pancake itself was a vehicle for the syrup. The pulled pork was soft. The oil syrup and was just dripping out as I was devouring it. I felt so dirty eating this but I couldn’t stop. Nancy and I kept sliding our fork of pork and pancake across the plate to soak up the syrup and before we know it, the river of syrup dried up. We sat there looking at each other, and not proceeding to eat more. I politely asked the waitress to bring us some more syrup. We continue to wait and finally the syrup jar came. We refilled the plate with the goodness and continued to empty the plate until we couldn’t eat anymore.
From one perspective, I feel dirty for eating here. Everything is so deliciousness, but if it came with a Nutrition Facts Chart, I would have a heart attack just reading it. When I am slicing the pancake, gathering the pulled pork, or gripping the pork belly sandwich, I am in the zone. I don’t care about my health. I walk out satisfied and want to come back again, but then again, better hit the gym to make room for next time.
