Best Sandwich Minneapolis 2014 - Bacon & Fried Egg Sandwich at Cheeky Monkey
525 Selby Ave.
St. Paul, MN 55102
The fried egg sandwich is a tricky beast. If the bread is too thick or crusty, the filling is dispensed out the other end at first bite. And since the egg is such a delicate, perfect food, improper handling or preparation can send the sandwich experience over the edge and down the chasm of disappointment. But a successful egg sandwich awaits at the Cheeky Monkey Deli. The English muffin provides plenty of nooks and crannies for when the yolk bursts and seeps into the bread. The interior becomes wonderfully gooshy while the exterior maintains a stiff outer crust. A swipe of Sriracha aioli lends a creamy, lush, heat-spiked blanket of flavors while the perfectly cooked bacon brings some needed smoke and pork to the party. Lest we forget to eat our vegetables, there is a handful of perfectly peppery arugula to balance out the decadence. After the last bite, you can look back and appreciate the delicate dance that just landed a solid 10 in your stomach.
