Best Bizarre Bread - 2002
Places like Sullivan Street Bakery (see Pizza Box, below) have long been pushing the envelope as far as bread is concerned, innovating with herbs, olives, sea salt, and other flavor sensations. Still, even the strongest sourdough can't compare with the innate weirdness of Sri Lankan egg appam, available Sundays at BOWNIE. As you peer into the delicious, bowl-shaped bread, you'll spy a wiggly egg glued to the bottom. How you go about eating it is up to you.
