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: Tomato and Mozzarella at Dean and Deluca
The bread was soft and chewy, and salting the mozzarella was a smart touch. Overall though, not a whole lot of flavor even from the pesto.
New York City: Caramelized Figs, Raspberry Compote, and Goat cheese at Little Muenster
A very different grilled cheese than the usual savory ones I find! Nice and delicious combination of sweet and tangy but ultimately not very filling.
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: Little Ham at Valley Shepherd Creamery
The ham was nice and smokey tasting which went well with the sweet pear. The rough ground mustard also added a nice little pop texture of all the seeds.
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: Black and Bleu at Clarke’s Standard
This burger joint outpost of Clarke’s just opened and had some serious lines to prove it. They brag about the fresh ground angus beef, which was definitely the strongest part of this sandwich. Otherwise the bacon was chewy, not enough blue cheese, and the bun suffered the steam driven sogginess that take out unfortunately causes.
I will definitely be back to try their basic burgers and eat inside next time though!
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: 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: Bacon Cheeseburger at Thistle Hill Tavern
Apologies for the dark picture. This burger was cooked with just the right amount of char which added really good flavor. Crispy bacon on top, and made to a perfect manageable pick up size!
