A Fine BLT at Emma's Pizza

The BLT. A sandwich so simple yet so delicious. It would be easy to simply say "everything is better with bacon" and be done with it, giving the BLT the sandwich crown. I mean it's true, everything IS better with bacon but the truth is it is not just the bacon that makes a BLT so good. It's the fresh, crisp lettuce, the juicy, plump tomato, the sinful, rich mayonnaise, and finally, the crispy, smokey, salty bacon. Oh, the bacon!

The best BLT I have had in recent memory can be found at Emma's Pizza in Kendall, Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Emma's is known for its incredible thin-crust pizzas but also offers an assortment of salads and sandwiches worthy of their own recognition, including their BLT. Emma's BLT is constructed with extra-thick, double smoked bacon, house-roasted tomato, Boston Bibb lettuce and a smear of Ken's extra-thick mayonnaise on grilled Iggy's sourdough.

You should go to Emma's for the pizza, and stay for the BLT. Tell them One Food Guy sent you.
