New York City: Italian Bacon and Provolone Breakfast Panini
This sandwich was pretty dry and not very flavorful, and then the second half soaked up all the balsamic from the salad garnish and made it very mushy.
New York City: Red Velvet Ice Cream Sandwich at Melt Bakery
Cream cheese ice cream between fluffy red velvet “meltcakes”? Enough said. Go eat it, you won’t be sorry.
New York City: The Cadillac at PJ Clarkes
This classic NY spot and burger are great in their simplicity. A simple well cooked burger with melt in your mouth bacon on a fluffy white bread bun. Only complaint is American cheese which is always iffy for me.
New York City: Vermont Cheddar Sandwich at Silver Moon Bakery
Good quality cheddar went very well with the rye and mustard. The cucumber and lettuce added a nice crunch but the sandwich was missing something overall. Also, being premade the bread was a bit soggy.
New York City: Wagyu Beef Bollito Panino
Really tender meat and wonderful spice element from the horseradish, sandwiched between two pieces of bread crisped up just right.
New York City: Little Oyster Sandwich at The Dutch
Though only about 2 bites tops, this little sandwich packed some seriously great flavor. The fried oyster gave it just the right amount of sea taste, and not too much of the fried taste. The textures were all perfect, and I’m not sure what the sauce was but it gave the sandwich great spice. Would love a full size version of this one!
New York City: Three Cheese Grilled Cheese from Milk Truck
This is rivaling Grahamwich in Chicago for the best grilled cheese I have ever had! The bread, which was rosemary pullman from Blue Ribbon Bakery, was crisped to buttery perfection and the rosemary was subtle but really nice. Then inside you have aged Gruyere, aged NY cheddar, Wisconsin blue, and caramelized granny smith apples. The nutty Gruyere and tangy blue were balanced well with the rich cheddar and sweet apple. A MUST try!
New York City: Grass Fed Burger at Back Forty
The bread was a weak point on this burger, but the patty was juicy and cooked well. The farmhouse cheddar has a nice nutty flavor to it, and the bacon was wonderfully thick and melt away in your mouth!
New York City: Steamed Pork Buns at Momofuku Noodle Bar
This is borderline not a sandwich to me but most people consider it to be, and since it tasted so good I decided I had to include it! Biting into this is like biting into a cloud. A delicious warm cloud stuff with roasted pork belly. This is a NYC must have!
New York City: Mallorquin at Despana
This sandwich had a chorizo spread, pressed and drizzled with warm honey. At first the sweet/savory combo was nice, but after a few bites the spice of the chorizo with it became a little odd.
New York City: Chorizo at Despana
Really tasty thick chorizo sausage, complimented very well by the nutty manchego cheese. Good crunchy bread also! A lot to try on the menu at this place.
New York City: Prosciutto Sandwich at The Little Sweet Cafe
Inside this little side street french cafe that is easy to miss, are some great sandwiches. What could have been a very basic thing, was made great by a unique choice of bread. This was a turkish bread I was told, that was just flaky and melt away perfect. The pesto was very good and the whole thing had just the right portions of mozzarella and prosciutto.
New York City: Secret Burger at Peels
So glad the waitress told me about this one! The very juicy burger was on a roll with an onion ring inside it, dripping with creamy pimento cheese, topped with bacon, and given a great spice from pickled jalapeño and red-onion slaw. Definitely ask for this when you’re there!
New York City: French Picnic at Barnyard
This is a sandwich type I order often from places like Bierkraft and BKLN Larder, so I was a bit disappointed when I had the Barnyard version here. The baguette was wonderfully crispy, but the the pickles were dry and they used butter instead of spicy mustard so it lacked that nice kick.
New York City: American Wagyu Beef Burger at Five Points
Great Vermont cheddar on this one but the patty itself was kind of dry, and lacked that good running onto the plate with each bite that I like.
