Review: Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich from Dunkin’ Donuts
Steak and eggs for breakfast is going to be awesome, right? I’m a working girl, so I know how it is with going to work, running errands, being at the grocery store at the crack of dawn so it isn’t crowded. With so many of us on the go all day, there are many breakfast items being made to fuel us through the morning. They all claim to be fast and filling and even as far as adding a hardcore meat in the mix to keep you satisfied until the next meal. Bigger, better, meatier, and fresher are always the promises restaurants give us to draw us into buying their breakfast. After all the commercials for the new Dunkin’ Donuts Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich, I wanted to try it on my way to work one morning. I wanted some coffee anyway so might as well try something new. Bad idea.
Dunkin’ Donuts says, “Eat breakfast like a boss.” The sandwich is a toasted onion bagel with a piece of Angus steak, egg, and cheese.
It was completely disappointing, bland, and a bit creepy. The first thought I had when the sandwich entered the car was how much it smelled like wet cat food. I mean exactly like it. That was the first big turn off. The bagel was toasted and a bit rubbery, like it had been sitting there for a while just waiting for its next victim.
The Angus had a chopped texture and was falling apart as if it was originally poorly constructed and then put back together. You would think a steak full of flavor would be great, right? This has a very overwhelming taste of Angus, to the point where it seemed like an artificial flavor they put into the meat. The Angus steak was also very peppery and dry. Actually the whole sandwich was dry and other than the meat, very bland.
The egg was a crispy edged disk that was only there for texture and the cheese barely made appearance in flavor. The whole bagel was about 2 inches thick, which made eating in the car very difficult. The Angus Steak & Egg Sandwich needed something to pull it all together like maybe a flavored cream cheese or ranch dressing to add another flavor other than peppery beef. It was a terrible sandwich all together and would not even try to entice your cat with it. The smell was just awful.
Pros: Quick ordering. Something to eat if you’re in a hurry. Coffee was great
Cons: Lack of flavor other than the bad Angus meat. Very dry. Too big to handle on the go.
