(Original Food Cart Review - September 2011)
(Second Food Cart Review - May 2012)
Damn. Since my last official visit to this cart nearly FOUR years ago, The Big Egg has not only gone brick-and-mortar, but have been seemingly doing great in that spot. They took up the old Sugar Cube spot on NE Alberta, and I had to go in to check it out.
The menu remains quite simplistic: six or seven sandwich options. Their famous wrap -- which was pretty much always the first to sell out at the food cart -- is also still there. Awesome. The Big Egg continues to support local businesses. Local ingredients featured everywhere.
I got the Sausage and Peppers Sandwich ($9): Over-medium egg, Nicky Farms mild Italian pork sausage patty, fire-roasted bell peppers and onions, spicy cherry peppers, mild provolone, balsamic aioli, and organic arugula on a grilled ciabatta hearth roll.
As good as that Breakfast Wrap was when I last had it years ago, I think this Sausage and Peppers sandwich tops that. From the sausage, to the peppers/onions, and that melted provolone, it all worked so well. Can't beat that runny egg. Crunchy bread. I swear this stuff is like crack. Addicting and delicious.
Warning: This is probably at least a 10-12 napkin sandwich. But I am a messy panda. Still, I'm sure licking your fingers and the plate is allowed.
Depending on when you go, there may be a decent wait for your food.
Everything here is cooked to order, but trust me, it's worth it. 9.25/10
