eat all the smith and deli sandwiches – #7 egg mcmartinez
I have to confess that in my pre vegan days, a McMuffin at Maccas was an occasional guilty pleasure when I was in a hurry. Needless to say I haven’t eaten one for quite a while.
So I was delighted to find the playfully named Egg McMartinez on the menu at Smith & Deli. For those that don’t know, the chef and co-owner’s surname is Martinez.
I grabbed one of these and a coffee for breakfast on my way to one of my early morning volunteering days. I do some occasional driving for Fareshare to rescue otherwise wasted food that would go to landfill. I also do a regular shift cooking in the kitchen.
The Egg McMartinez consists of a tofu egg, complete with a slightly sulphurous eggy yolk, scarily real looking vegan bacon and Bio cheese on a toasted english muffin. The muffins are a perfect size for eating on the run in the car.
This is pretty good, but it isn’t my favourite, mostly because I am not a huge fan of Bio cheese. But the trip down memory lane was fun. Pretty much the same as Maccas really, but without feeling sordid. Oh and it tastes better!
All that’s missing is the drive through.
