“Three words: Monte. Cristo. Sandwich,” exclaimed one yelp.com reviewer, “I am in love with this sandwich. I loved Monte Cristo sandwiches before, but this one [from Le Chateau] is fantastic.” This is just one of the many rave reviews from Le Chateau’s that essentially claim the sandwich is edible ecstasy.
Although the Monte Cristo sandwich varies from restaurant to restaurant, traditionally it is a double-decker sandwich with two slices of white bread containing ham, turkey, or chicken and a slice of cheese. But best of all, the sandwich is dipped in beaten egg and fried in butter — giving the bread the texture of french toast. Sweet and savory fuse together in this sandwich to provide an unforgettable sensory experience.
At Le Chateau, the Monte Cristo is nothing short of excellent. The smoky black forest ham and turkey combined with the swiss cheese are enough to delight your taste buds. But the bread is also soaked in a yolky egg batter and then deep fried, giving it the consistency of French toast. Once it comes out of the deep frier, the bread is dusted with powdered sugar, making the sandwich the perfect combination of savory and sweet. To enhance the flavor of the Monte Cristo, a ramekin of raspberry chambord jelly is provided, which will leave you dreaming about this flavor combination for days. Furthermore, when you order the Monte Cristo at Le Chateau, you are offered one of three amazing side dishes to compliment your sandwich: truffle fries, fresh fruit, or Asian coleslaw. As Le Chateau always opts for excellence, you cannot go wrong with any of these three options.
If you want to try a Monte Cristo, Le Chateau is unrivaled when it comes to this unique and flavorful sandwich.
