I’m already a fan of Park Burger, Jean-Philippe Failyau’s eatery in Platt Park. And while I’m completely partial to the Croque burger (a one-third-pound patty of Harris Ranch beef, ham, fried egg, and Swiss cheese), I’ve also been known to put down an El Chilango, which comes topped with cheddar, jalapeños, and guacamole.

So, when Failyau e-mailed me that Park Burger is now serving breakfast sandwiches (8 to 11 a.m. daily), I checked out the menu and headed down. Aside from the classics—ham or bacon, fried egg, and American cheese—there’s also a breakfast version of El Chilango (the egg replaces the burger, and there’s ham) and the Royal, with two eggs, caramelized onions, bacon, and American cheese.

These are breakfast sandwiches made with care. They take a little time to arrive, but when they do, the egg is cooked to your liking, the cheese is perfectly melted, and the bun is soft enough to keep the whole mess glued together.
