Heart shaped sandwich

Valentine’s Day holds a special crappy place in my heart as a day of the year where I don’t get to eat a lot of sandwiches. Bless the cooks at the Google cafeteria, though – they felt my pain and gave me a handmade pork cutlet breakfast biscuit sandwich. The heart not only commemorates the special day of the year, but also the love that the cooks put into this delicious treat. Also, my inevitable death from heart failure. Mmm.

 P.S – Happy birthday, Drew!

Scrambled eggs and ham

Got this at the municipal IHOP, because it was the most sandwichy thing on the menu. It’s quite breakfasty, mostly on account of the scrambled eggs, but it was perfectly fine for dinner as well. That said, my review of the sandwich is decidedly mixed. The combination of scrambled eggs and two kinds of melted cheese gave it a generally very goopy mouthfeel that the ham and bread did little to offset. Even worse, the bottom slice of toast was thoroughly soggy when it arrived, so it had clearly been sitting for a while before being brought out. Some of my complaints are directed towards the abstracted ideal of the sandwich, and some are directed towards the particular IHOP franchisee that served it to me, but it’s hard to tell exactly where to draw the line between them. The onion rings were fantastic, though.

A Contradiction in Terms

Bacon Veggie Burger

An odd paradox of food, I ordered this veggie burger with bacon. It was at a Jimmy Buffett-owned burger restaurant my sister took me to. It’s a fairly standard bacon cheeseburger, featuring lettuce, tomato, onions, cheddar cheese, and so on, except I requested to have a veggie burger patty. You can get any burger there as a veggie burger.

Really, most of the time, I could hardly tell that it wasn’t a real bacon cheeseburger. Sometimes, of course, a bite should’ve been meatier than it was, and I could tell it was a veggie patty. But really, I don’t see THAT big of a difference… I guess I’m not that picky when it comes to food. Oh, also, the sweet potato chips were really good. Mmm.

Funny story, actually, my sister ordered a BBQ veggie burger or something, but wound up getting a mushroom swiss veggie burger by mistake. They prepared her the correct burger, and I got a free bonus burger out of the deal. Plus the restaurant also covered one of her drinks. So a free mixed drink and a free burger! Now THAT’s service! We left a nice tip.
