Down in Manhattan Beach is a reliable little bakery called Manhattan Bread & Bagel. It’s a great place to stop by for some lunch, and although the sandwiches don’t get incredibly creative, they can always be counted on.
Just as with almost every sandwich place, most of their choices came with a bunch of vegetables. Last time, I ordered the Grilled Pesto Chicken Breast, which comes with tomato, red onion, lettuce and pesto on a French baguette. As always, I ordered it without the tomato, red onion or lettuce, then I noticed that there was a total lack of cheese. To remedy the situation, I ordered some Havarti cheese on it.
When I went to pick it up, it was just as I had hoped, a real sandwich, with no veggies to distract from the pesto flavoring. The chicken was pretty good and the pesto had a great flavor. They also didn’t skimp on the cheese, and as I took each bite, the cheese seemed to goo forth from within.
All in all, I was pretty content with my sandwich. It wasn’t anything mind-blowing, but made for a comfortable lunching experience.
