Sandwich of the Week: The Body Builder at Market Bar Chicago

This week’s sandwich is from The Windy City

The Bodybuilder

Chicago is known for many great culinary works such as deep dish pizza, Italian beef, and hot dogs, but now the city has another fabulous sandwich to add to the mix.

The Body Builder at Market Bar Chicago is a smoked turkey breast sandwich layered with fresh mozzarella cheese, a broiled egg, sun-dried tomatoes, and baby spinach. It is then dressed with homemade basil mayo and wrapped-up in whole wheat flatbread.

This sandwich is a hearty, protein-rich dish that will satisfy your hunger pains and your taste buds. The smoked turkey and mozzarella cheese is highlighted by the robust flavor of the sun-dried tomatoes, while the broiled egg adds variant texture. The basil mayo complements the fillings with a cool freshness, and the whole wheat flatbread is subtle (not overpowering or grainy, like many whole wheat breads tend to be), which balances the whole sandwich.

If the Body Builder is not enough to fill you, it is served with a small arugula salad.

Market Bar Chicago has several dining spaces you choose to enjoy your meal in – at the sports bar you can watch game, indulge in a more intimate setting in the dining room, or dine alfresco on the rooftop patio space.

Market Bar Chicago is located 1113 W. Roosevelt in Chicago and is open Sunday- Wednesday 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Thursday- Friday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and on Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 a.m.
