Turkey, Bacon and Avocado at Einstein Bros Bagels
Turkey. Bacon. Avocado. They're obviously friends, and it would take a bland-ass bagel sandwich chain to mess it up. But Einsteins doesn't exactly mess it up; this is actually one of the better sandwiches we've had at this place. The avo was surprisingly un-mushy, the bacon was crispy, and the lettuce, tomato and onion were perfectly decent. We built it on one of those bagel-thin things, to try to keep the proportions right, and it was an everything bagel-thin thing so it actually had some flavor. Everything was coasting above mediocrity until we got a mouthful of the mayonaissy, chipotle sauce nonsense, which is sweet and gross and oddly spicy. Ick. And of course it's spread on both sides of the bagel thing. Close ... not a full screwup, far from success.
