With both of us being to France and trying the Croque Monsieur in it’s native land, Nora and I figured it would be best to give a highly-rated Chicago version a whirl.
We did takeout from Troquet close to Ravenswood and Montrose. It looks like a nice place to have a meal and a drink, but I was clearly interested in only the sandwich.
The only difference with this one is that they include Dijon Mustard. Thankfully, it’s not overpowering.
We both agreed the sandwich was very, very good. The main difference with this and the French Croque Monsieur (besides the Dijon) was the crispiness of the cheese on the outside. It wasn’t as crispy.
But comparing it to French sandwiches is not the point…..comparing it to the Choriqueso is. Hopefully, it puts a smile on my face like this one.
