BLT at Willow Rest

Some sandwiches I don’t think I have ever ordered, tuna fish sandwich, PB&J, or a BLT. Why? because I know I can make them better myself and they are so easy to make. I think I shied away from ordering a BLT because I figured they would just use the bacon left over from breakfast. Until Sue and Evvy split a BLT at Willow Rest. They let me have one bite. Wow.  It wasn’t until this week that I got back to order one for myself.

This bacon lettuce and tomato is better than I have ever made.

The bun: soft and chewy, buttered and toasted on the grill for a nice layer of crunch.

Bacon: thick, salty, smoked, I think you can get this in the Willow Rest refridgerator case.

Lettuce: fluffy pile for good texture to oppose the crunch of bacon and the grilled bun.

Tomato: still getting that homegrown taste in December.

The mayo: some kind of secret mixture with a nice tang to it.

The last five times I’ve stopped at the Willow Rest I can’t help ordering the Cuban. I might have found the lunch that will win the next five visits.

    That looks amazing!!!

  2. I had this parked for publishing at 3PM today but Joey must have seen the photo and I got upgraded to pre lunch post. It is the tastiest BLT I have ever had in my life and my mother could make a pretty good one where I learned to make my own. I toast Pepperidge Farm white with Hellmann’s on both sides but this Willow Rest bun makes that taste like cardboard.

    Melissa’s restaurant The Willows is one of the greatest finds in Gloucester, my
    daughter and I hit there every afternoon during the week.

  6. I stopped by today and they had a special, BLT with crab cake. What would be better than stick a crab cake in that BLT? Excessive? I will report with photos next week. Sue and Evvy split a hot pastrami which I got a bite. Holy crap that was good. The mushroom soup was also over the top rich and yummy.

  7. alL this because of Bacon, lettuce and tomato? your the man, Paul M!
