WHAT BLT on marble rye
WHERE MBCo (Montreal Bread Company), 100 Bloor St. W., Unit 7, 416-961-6226, mbco.ca
WHY Light, refreshing and not the least bit greasy
Everyone should have a BLT before they die, the question is which one? I’m sure many bacon and grease lovers/people who are hungover will disagree with my selection, but MBCo gets my vote for their minimalist sandwich.
Boston lettuce, cherry tomatoes and appropriately thinly sliced, not too fatty bacon, with fresh made aioli.
I had takeaway and asked them to grill it. The care they took in doing that … well, I’ve never seen it before. The top piece of bread was removed from the sandwich so that the fillings were warmed but not smushed, AND they gave me a little tub of aioli instead of smearing it on themselves thereby ensuring the toast wouldn’t get soggy on my way home (the worst!) and that the sandwich would be to my taste.
Once I finished lunch, I had a strange feeling — the feeling of not feeling like I’d just eaten a grease sandwich. I felt good, healthy even!
