Best McMuffin Knock-Off (Or Knock-Up)


The delectable best in beverages and bites, from breakfast spots and burgers to sandwiches and seafood.

In our experience, nothing cures a hangover quite as well as an Egg McMuffin. But since we’re no longer in college, we’re upping our breakfast game by ordering the classic egg sandwich at Downtown brunch haven Vovomeena: fried egg, crispy bacon and zingy pepper jack on an eggy, buttery bun slathered in chipotle aioli. This is hangover food for adults.

Banana Nut at Flapjacks

Fountain Hills diner Flapjacks makes several seasonal versions of its house specialty oven-baked flapjacks, but banana nut is the best. Part of the appeal is presentation. Puffed up like a pillow on the plate, it deflates as it cools. Made with lots of butter, topped with powered sugar and cinnamon, it’s scrumptious, even sans syrup.
