Highly rated on Google Maps, my next breakfast was taking place at Sullivan St. located on 9th and 24th in New York City. I love this city especially on mornings... it has been a habit to do two breakfasts every single day while in the capital of business and opportunities. A bar, an open kitchen, beer draft nozzles, a coffee machine and a display where the bakeries are ready to be taken away. It should smell fresh bread but it doesn’t...
Too dimmed for a bakery, a bad smell, not too much action, not too many choices for breakfast... nothing feels too appetizing in here. I stood up in front of her display and ordered one of each:
- The pre-prepared egg sandwich would have tasted better hot. A light sweetness and a crumble of moist eggs inside two layers of fluffy bread. The spinach bread is something oval with a green heart. It is moist and juicy, the same sweet bread is used everywhere, an acceptable taste but again better if lightly heated.
- The doughnut is the best! I’ll come again for the doughnut. They call it “Bambaloni” like the street Donuts of Tunisia. I’ve been there in 2012 and remember eating this famous street food everybody recommends. A fluffy bun looking like Dunkin’s Boston cream filled with chocolate cream, enjoyably watery, lightly creamy, adequately sweet, fluffy, smooth and intensely flavorful! This creation rocks!
Since I personally didn’t like the place or at least didn’t understand the hype behind it, and because I didn’t want to leave deceived, I ordered two sandwiches, the salmon and the eggs with sausage.
Sandwiches on another hand are awesome! An amazing French baguette sandwich that’s smoothly crunchy without being hard and chewy, filled with scrambled eggs prepared to perfection alongside spicy grilled sausages. That’s a yummy sandwich I do recommend you try! The Salmon Tartine with thinly cut cucumbers and mascarpone cheese is a simple creation. Premium quality bread, fine soft salmon and cream cheese spread. Amazing sandwiches indeed.
Come here for the sandwiches and the Bambaloni! Nothing else matters. High ratings on the net aren’t justified.
