Why this is one of the best in the country
This sandwich doesn't even need bacon. And I say that not because I'm a Jew who has sworn off bacon and I need to feel better about my life decisions, but because it's truly satisfying on its own. Modmarket also serves up lunch and dinner, and they use this to their advantage -- their super-hot pizza oven toasts the bread. This gives it a crispy, crunchy toastiness that the bread at your average breakfast joint can't touch.
The Rocket's arugula has a "pepperiness", a term their chef might have made up, but it contrasts beautifully with the smooth, creamy aioli, the smoky cheese, and the hearty egg. It's filling and tasty, and it'll make you happy you got up before 11am.
