I was just going to come here to review the sandwiches. Heard some good things, was in the mood for a good ‘wich, was in the area anyway, figured “What the hell.” I could not predict what would happen next.
Let’s get the sandwich part of the review out of the way: They’re alright.
Ok, fine, a little more detail. Which Wich? Is a rapidly expanding national chain that offers endlessly customizable sandwiches. Seriously, way too many options and work involved. Paper bags numbered 1 through 10 await you, each representing a different sandwich base (Vegetarian, Turkey, Italian). Then you use one of the provided red markers to customize your ‘wich to suit you to a tee. You can even get it bowl form, which is weird (just call it a salad guys). Give your bag to the cashier, they’ll accurately punch in all your checked options (more or less) and then a few minutes later you pick up your ‘wich in the same paper bag you used to order. The sandwiches are fine blah blah blah nothing special blah blah blah exactly what you’d expect blah blah.
Now let’s talk about these fucking milkshakes.
Which Wich? makes they’re shakes in a variety of flavors using real ice cream (Vanilla, Chocolate, Banana, Strawberry, Pineapple, Oreo). Get a combination of strawberry and banana. Shut up, just do it. It’s like they put strawberries, bananas, and vanilla ice cream into the machine that turned Jeff Goldblum into The Fly and served what came out of the other side. Simply describing the milkshake will do no good, it’s too unique and separate from all the other’s I’ve tasted. So I’ll just paraphrase quotes from various movies and TV shows.
I want to take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant. I wish it was Winter so I could freeze it into ice blocks and skate on it, and then melt it in the Spring and drink it. I want to be inside of it. I want to be on it. I want it inside of me. It’s streets ahead, possibly even better than Batman.
Just get the damn shake.

*Rating takes into account the sandwiches. The shakes themselves are atmospheric.
