(14) Warm Egg Salad Sandwich @ Il Cane Rosso

For those of you that know me, know how much I despise mayonnaise, and therefore anything mayo-based - aioli, many dressings, tuna salad, white fish salad, chicken salad, etc. For those of you that know me, know how annoyingly particular about the way I do and do not eat eggs - never scrambled, never hard-boiled, no omelettes ever, quiche is borderline okay not-okay...however fried eggs & poaches eggs alright (but only is the yolk is runny/raw). I know, I knowwwww, there is no rhyme or reason to my madness. But I had to make an exception for this Warm Egg Salad Sandwich - a combination of my two arch nemesis = aioli + hard-boiled eggs. Sometimes a girls gotta go what a girls gotta do in order to eat all 100 things on this list. Despite by bizarre eggy eating habits, this was real good. The egg salad - buttery, garlicky, citrusy, chivy - was piled high onto a thick slab of crunchy bread, topped with a slice of tangy aged provolone and thrown under the broiler for a few minutes and garnished with some leafy greens. It was so rich and creamy. If you really dig egg salad then you will loooove this. If you can, cozy up at a table outside to admire the ferry boats and Bay Bridge while you chow down on this San Francisco comfort food.
