Crossroads Diner apparently has sticky buns that make the world a better place. Not only did I not know Crossroads Diner supposedly had the best sticky buns in the universe, I didn’t even know what a sticky bun was, which is really weird.
No one around here is embarrassed to admit not knowing every single food or baked item on the planet. The curriculum at Le Cordon Bleu obviously did not state chef teachers should teach anyone about the sticky bun. How am I supposed to know about the sticky bun if no one tells me?
This all brings back memories of my first job waiting tables in tenth grade when a customer asked, “What is the soup of the day?” I innocently told the customer that soup du jour was the soup of the day, of course. Yes, I got fired, which is totally fine. Spanish was the class I took in high school. Pardon me for dropping French on the second day because the teacher was as scary as Restaurant Rotation class at Le Cordon Bleu.
How is a teenager supposed to know soup du jour actually means soup of the day in French. This is all quite sad. The owner was not prepared to throw me a bone. It was over. You’re finished. Get out. Happy trails & don’t come back. You’ll never wait tables in this town again! Being a glass-is-half-full kind of girl, I decided to continue living anyway.
After Google explained all that is the sticky bun, yes, I can see how this excites people. Google also sent me to Wikipedia, which hurts the feelings of every teacher at Le Cordon Bleu. Teachers do not trust Wikipedia, so you shouldn’t either. Wikipedia promised me that the sticky bun also has a “Germanic origin and was originally known as Schnecken.” Remember, this could all be a lie because Wikipedia is sometimes shady.
Before ordering the sticky bun, there were three favorites on the menu that had to be ordered first: tuna salad sandwich, grits, and an egg salad sandwich. People who do not like grits need to calm down. Being from South Carolina means grits work out at all times. Some people are offended with the mention of the word—grits. They start saying grit instead of grits just to hurt my feelings. The grits at Crossroads Diner seem more like oatmeal. No thanks.
Both the tuna and egg salad sandwiches were as exciting as they could be since the toasted wheat bread was massively toasted. Having the sandwiches without the bread was the right thing to do, which also meant less carbs for the day. After having the tuna melt at Bread Winners, there’s no way the tuna salad sandwich at Crossroads makes the cut. Sorry. Even if they added gloriously melted cheese, which was denied, it would never add up to the joy that awaits all tuna melt lovers at Bread Winners. It’s kind of like having a lobster roll at TJ’s Seafood Market and then trying to justify other lobster rolls around Dallas.
On the up and up, the sticky buns rock! There’s no way anyone can say the sticky buns at Crossroads Diner do not make their toes tingle just a little.
