What makes the perfect hangover food? I’d say a big portion, a little bit of spice, a lot’a bit of grease. I suppose that’s why I find myself going to Bui’s so much on weekend mornings. But no, I do not get the famed “Hangover Special”. Instead I order something that can only be gotten at Bui’s. “Pepperoni, Egg, and Cheese with Onions, Salt, Pepper, and Bui’s Sauce (Sriracha Mayo) on a Long Roll”. I literally dream about this sandwich… it is so filling and delicious. Did I mention it’s $3!
I wandered over to Bui’s on this sleepy Sunday morning at just after noon. As usual there is a crowd of generally hungover looking guys in groups of 2 or 3 or 4 waiting for their salvation. Bui’s is a Sunday morning hub where you are bound to see someone you know who is there for the same reason as you, I know I did. After a bit more than 5 minutes my order was ready (somehow before my friend’s order even though he had ordered before me).
I brought my sandwich back to my house so I could dig in. It was fresh off the grill and I could feel the heat of the freshly cooked eggs in my hand. I open it up to be greeted by a flood of fantastic smells… from the eggs to the onions to BUI’S SAUCE! Putting onions on the sandwich is a new addition for me. On my walk over the the truck I ran into a friend returning from Bui’s who’s order inspired me to add onions to my old-time favorite. This turned out to be a very wise decision. The onions were hot from being grilled and added a sweet onion-y crunch to the sandwich.
I think most people would be a little hesitant to order pepperoni on their breakfast sandwich, but honestly widen your horizons and give it a try… grilled pepperoni slices combined with melty cheese and the sweet and spicy Bui’s sauce makes for an unbelievable combination. Take my word for it.
The breakfast sandwiches are only the tip of the iceberg at Bui’s. Don’t forget to try their cheesesteak, or chicken cheesesteak, or meatballs hoagie, or bacon-egg salad hoagie, or any of the other offerings. See you there Sunday morning.
Bottom Line: Fast service, delicious food, good prices.
