Oh Clementine, how I love thee. I had several “housekeeping” tasks to take care of today. I was super productive this morning finishing my tasks so I treated myself. It’s been so long since I’ve been to Clementine, the whole menu changed!
One thing stayed the same though, Moroccan Mint Tea.
I asked the server what her favorite was of, oh about 5 dishes. She recommended the BLT, which is called the “Best BLT”.
Let me tell you. It is called “best” for a reason. This was the best BLT that I have EVER had. Bar none.
Let’s break it down:
- The bread was delicious and had mayo on it. Actual mayo. Normally I don’t have mayo, so maybe I thought it was the best because I haven’t had mayo for so long. This was what was going though my mind while eating.
- The bacon. Crispy but not too crispy. The flavor was amazing. You know when bacon is too crispy and it tastes oddly burned? I hate that but this bacon was savory and the oil was flavorful.
- Lettuce was crisp and cool. Excellent contrast to the bacon.
- The tomato was better than normal tomato. I can’t really put my finger on what it was but it was amazing. The tomato was marinaded a little bit. It was fantastic.
And that was it. The perfect BLT. I think everyone should run out right now and try it.
