If you've ever been curious what the world's smallest yet most bangin' sandwich shop looks like, enter Mike & Patty's in the charming section of the South End known as Bay Village. The idyllic brownstones are #goals (someday!) and it is a lovely neighborhood to walk your dog through or enjoy a stroll with a friend. The shop may be small but there sandwiches are anything but.
We recently visited this acclaimed sandwich shop which has been recognized by the likes of Alton Brown from Food Network, Thrillist and Boston Magazine.
Naturally I had to order something as absurd as the Breakfast Grilled Crack - this sandwich will bring you to a new kind of high. It was served on sourdough and was oozing with fried egg, bacon, american, cheddar and gruyere.
Bae ordered the Fancy - two fried eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese, avocado, red onions and house-mayo on toasted lggy's multigrain bread.
We managed to steal two stools at the counter. Space is tight - the kind of place where you get to know your neighbor, but very cozy.
These sandwiches were loaded: with flavor, with bacon, with cheese - with talent and passion.
Before leaving we got an Impossible Burger to go. Because we live in complete excess that's why. Now why is it impossible you may ask? It's a plant based burger - but you'd never know it. Think of it as a grown up Big Mac - with better quality everything. This one had a tomato spread smeared on the bun, was loaded with butter lettuce, onion, pickles and cheese.
Moral of the story: make it a point to stop in to Mike & Patty's - don't let the line outside deter you - it moves quickly and just means it's really that good.
