Chicago’s Best Sandwich Lives Up To The Hype

Chicago’s Best Sandwich Lives Up To The HypeLast year, Time Out Chicago published a list of Chicago’s 50 best sandwiches. It took me around eight months, but my wife and I finally made our way over to the Old Oak Tap for their BLT, the top sandwich on the list.

I don’t even know where to begin. This sandwich has a number of outstanding pieces that create a flavorful synergy – you need to try it! The applewood smoked bacon is piled high, topped with a delicious cornmeal fried green tomato. These are perched on a bed of arugula and bookended by probably the best bread I have ever had. Something about that grilled ciabatta really got me going. It was just really good, with a taste and texture that could only be described as “buttery” and featuring a thin pimento cheese spread that brought everything together.

If you have a few screws loose and don’t think that this BLT is for you, fear not. The Old Oak Tap has an array of items from their Santa Fe Skillet (chorizo, sautéed onions, jalapeno, cotija cheese, avocado, sour cream, on a bed of hash browns) and Southern Benny (crispy polenta cake, bbq pulled pork, roasted red pepper buerre blanc, poached eggs, cotija cheese) for brunch to their Chicken & Waffles, Bison Sliders, Tacos, and Fat Boy Pie (Pulled pork shoulder, sharp vermont cheddar, tomatoes, spring onions and black olives, green goddess dressing, french fries and mashed potatoes) for dinner.

With an unreal BLT that boasts the title of Chicago’s best sandwich and a host of other creative menu items, the Old Oak Tap is sure to give you something to delight in.

UPDATE: My wife read this post and chastized me for forgetting to mention the $3 mimosas and bellinis on Sundays. Too good to pass up!
