Toasties EATen

Sourdough Toasties at EAT - Reuben, Ultimate Four Cheese and Firecracker Chicken.
My taster spy commented: "Very enjoyable toasted cheese sandwich. Sourdough bread really nice.  
Slight criticisms: Some of the cheese squashed out of sandwich and in wrapping; One side of the bread crispy, the other side a bit wet and damp next to silver foil wrapping. Would have preferred crispy both sides."  Thank-you Bob.
