I was starvinating for lunch the other day after a hard workout, no doubt after doing upwards of 1000 pushups (including about 12 in real life and 9988 in my mind) and I was trying to figure out a new spot to eat. I had a major dilemma. I wanted to eat something quick, but I didn’t want something boring or that I’d had many times before. Luckily, I managed to find this place: The Big Front Door.
Now ok, I’ll give you that this place is “just” a sandwich place. But, it’s a really damn good one. That sesame slaw up there? Flavorrific. Everything else I ate? Mindblowingly tastetacular.
You ever eat something that is so good that you barely stop for air? That’s how I felt about this sandwich:
Yes. That is a sandwich made with ribs. Which, frankly, is the only way I want my sandwiches from now on. The sandwich was made with smoked baby back ribs taken off the bone with a house made bbq sauce that was sweet and a little bit tangy, oven roasted onions, shredded cabbage, oil and vinegar, all served on a torpedo roll. Everything together was just heaven. The ribs were succulent and flavorful, and the cabbage and onions gave it a great crunch. All in all, I breathed approximately three times while eating the entire sandwich. Sadly, its currently only a temporary item. However, I figure if all of the people who visit this website (yes, all twelve) write them an email it will undoubtedly be permanently on the menu as the CrapIEat special.
Ps if you don’t like bread (weirdo) or you can’t eat it, just get it as a salad. Rib salad! Now that’s a salad I can get behind.
Now of course a meal isn’t truly complete without chocolate. And yes, chocolate and ribs go together, don’t worry about it. If you go to The Big Front Door, you absolutely have to get their chocolate pistachio cookie. Best…cookie…ever:
This, much like the rib sandwich, should be rammed into your face as soon as you get it. I guess you should do some chewing too while you’re at it. It’s incredible. The chocolate is high quality and there isn’t too much sugar. The outside of the cookie has a nice crunch on the bottom but its still moist and soft and chewy. And the best part is the saltiness of the pistachio nicely compliments the chocolate. I’m not kidding, it is one of the best cookies I have ever had. Go eat twelve…thousand.
