Olive Nut Sandwich at Olympia Candy Kitchen

When I’m home to visit my parents, I always try to stop in at Olympia Candy Kitchen, a classic downtown dinner and homemade candy kitchen since 1912. Their hand-dipped chocolates, especially their chocolate turtles, are legendary! They have been using the same giant mercury Christmas ball and pine garland holiday decorations since I was a kid (and probably before that) and Olympia is one of two places in town where you can still get a green river phosphate. You can also get an olive nut sandwich. I know I’ve posted about this sandwich before, but I’ve got a much better photo this time. Chopped green olives and cashews on toast with a mayo and a leaf of iceberg lettuce for under $5. Still weird, still unique, still delicious.
