Monte Cristo

I've hardly ever met a sandwich I didn't like. But have you ever had a Monte Cristo?

Last night Richard, Loaf and I went to the Melrose Diner for dinner. I couldn't make up my mind from the large sandwich selection, so feeling pressure to order I chose the Monte Cristo. I had never had one before, but the menu description read that it had ham, turkey and cheese - what's not to like about that?


Apparently I didn't read the description hard enough because That shit has french toast for bread. Huh? Tasting ham, cheese, turkey and sweet custard-like bread all in the same mouthful is kinda a gross turnoff. It came with a side of maple syrup, for chrissakes.

If I wanted a McGriddle sandwich (also gross), I would have gone to McDonald's and saved myself a few bucks.

Moral of the story: avoid the Monte Cristo.

* However, that did not stop me from eating half of it last night, then the other half for lunch today.

Oh, the Monte Cristo sandwich is a standard sandwich served almost everywhre I've been. It's usually served for brunch/luncheon type of events.

Oh, and it's full of calories and fat. And not very good for you or your digestiver tract.

I for one love a Monte Cristo. The Monte Carlos at Nookies are also quite delish.

Now you've made me hungry.

I had my first Monte Cristo on a date about 15 years ago. Both ended badly.

PS - how disturbing is it that my verification word is "raipeu". Sound that out . . .
