In brief: You can count on Pret for a fresh sandwich. Everyone has a favorite, ours is the roast beef, parmesan and arugula on a baguette.
08-12 Pret a Manger
I was really craving a bowl from Chipotle today. I would rather it be from Dos Toros but whatever. It was 1:30pm and the line was still really long! I'm sure it moves quickly, but I lost my waiting in line steam. So I crossed the street over to Pret a Manger, with a 10 second detour contemplating a new cheesesteak truck. But it said "New York style" cheesesteak, and I quickly lost interest. Not that a New York style cheesesteak couldn't be good, but all the sudden I got vision flashes of San Gennaro style sandwiches, and I just walked away. If there's anything to be said about Pret, it's that I really love their sandwich ingredient proportioning. Flavorful but not too much or little innards or bread. And that's not a simple task.

I have a super soft spot for Pret. I love their egg and roasted tomato sandwiches the most.
