The Ultimate Eggplant Parmesan

Who doesn’t love a killer egg parm? Assholes, that’s who. So this post is for all of you egg-parm-loviin’-non-assholes out there.

Lincoln – New York, NY

It’s hard not to get distracted when you’re at Lincoln. By the décor. The tempting menu. The gorgeous presentations. But do yourself a solid and don’t miss this epic side. Sure, you might not be that hungry, but trust me, you need this.

Shaved ultra thin like a carpaccio, this eggplant manages to be everything you could ever wish for. It’s crispy and gooey. Savory and sweet. With just the perfect hint of acidity. A true work of art, and rightly so, considering the location.

Alcaravea – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Yes, Mexico. And I’ve been all over Italy, but this egg parm is better. And I am not alone on this one. I have back up. Everyone at the table was blown away. And for good reason. It was mind blowing. Sure, it might take them an hour to get it to your table, but at least it’s worth the wait.

Served rolled over on itself like pastry, this thing compounds the eggplants texture, making it much more substantial per bite. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that all of the ingredients from the tomatoes and herbs to the cheese and eggplant are so fresh, they literally pop in your mouth like a two year old begging for attention.
