Best Thing We Ate Today: Olive & Thyme's Turkey Panini
Joan's on Third copycats around Los Angeles, one that really gets it right is Olive & Thyme. It's not every day that we get jazzed about a turkey sandwich, but the panini from the bustling Toluca Lake-Burbank spot is downright delicious. The bread is perfect, the roast turkey is sliced just right, and the avocodo, sundried tomatoes and pesto aioli add just enough flavor. It absolutely killed for lunch today. Like Joan's (no affiliation, of course), O&T has plenty of salads, sandwiches, cheeses and great desserts, all to eat there or grab to go. Service is always top-notch, even when it's crazy busy, which is often. There's a lot to choose from, but we can see returning just for this panini when the craving for something simple and classic strikes.
