Bread 4. Pretty god.
Meat 4. Burger good and plentiful and had a little char flavor to it that could have been an accident but added character and richness.
Non-Meat Toppings 4. Onions were good and cheese was fine.
Jus 4. Salty and good with a nice flavor.
Overall 5. I have to give this a 5 because I really did like everything about it and wouldn't really change much. Nice job, J Michael's.

SummaryBread 3. Too absorbent. Nicely toasted, buttered, okay size.
Meat 4. Pretty good meat. No real complaints. Was juicy, too. Plentiful.
Non-Meat Toppings 4. They added something. (Cheese, onions, peppers). Peppers made it look good and seem fancy.
Jus 4. Good smelling. Was initally hot, came in a large container. Additional richness and it could have made the whole sandwich a 5.
Overall 4. Was quite well done and fun to eat but I think the somewhat weak jus made it less then perfect. The sandwich alone was good but dry and I hoped the jus would save the day; it helped but didn't rescue it fully, in the end.
Setting the Stage
Was out golfing with my buddy Ryan. After our round we stopped at the club house for a bit to eat and a beer. They had a French dip so I was obliged.
Raw Notes3, 4 tops
Beef ok 3
Side 🥗 fine
Jus just salty, no real beef flavor
Bread 2. Non-standard FD bread.
Non-Meat Toppings 3. White cheese ok. Horseradish cream on side ok.
Jus 2. Overly salty with not the correct rich and beefy flavor.Overall 3. What a person might expect at a golf course.

Setting the StageI was on my way home from Seattle and chose to finally go to Cafe Flora to eat their Portabello French Dip. I had been here many times and really liked it but somehow had not had the French dip. I would not be disappointed.
Raw Tasting NotesJus great, special, very salty
Sandwich looks good, nice bread
Salad wilted, looks flat
Fresh cuke and radishes on 🥗 a nice touch.
Salad flavor and freshness great
++ For 🌻 seeds and julienned carrots
Jus smells awesome
Sandwich alone a five. Awesome flavor, crunchy but soft 🍞, seeds on bread fantastic. Anise?
Didn't want to dip it was so good but felt blessed to know I could when it was in need.
Bread like a six with the seeds
Overall perfect 5 soooooooo good
