The Toasted - The Rasta
Location: Houston Food Park, 1311 Leeland

This is not an intuitively delicious sandwich. A grilled sandwich with peanut butter, fried plantains, and bacon. An option is to add caramel sauce. Like I said this isn't intuitively delicious, but think about the ingredients. Bacon works great with sweet. Plantains are sweet and savory. Peanut butter is a switch hitter and has a place in both worlds. This combination just works. I could eat this any time of the day actually. The plantains are perfectly done. That's where this sandwich could fail, but both times I have had it they were spot on. This is also a case where bacon could be too much of a good thing. Here its used perfectly, just the right amount I think. Synopsis: You won't need herbal stimulants to crave this sandwich!
