12 fantastic sandwiches in Boston
899 Main Street, Cambridge. 617-491-5877.
With the sole possible exception of the chicken-caesar wrap, the lowly breakfast sandwich is the last place youd expect to find transcendence. Variations in quality mostly come down to accessorizing a bacon strip here, an aioli blob there, a brioche roll baked to order while the cookery remains constant. Leave it to a scrappy ice cream shop, which tackles the morning meal only once a week (Saturday), to explode the genre. Wielding low heat and good old-fashioned patience, the chef coaxes scrambled eggs into a savory stovetop custard, gently maximizing their creamy heavenly potential. Oh yeah: The fluffy toasted ciabatta is pretty dreamy, too.
