Corned Beef Panini - Wildwood Bagel : Wildwood, NJ

Corned Beef  Panini - Wildwood Bagel : Wildwood, NJ
I went to Wildwood this weekend with my boyfriend and our first stop was Wildwood Bagel. Don't let the name fool you. This place has a great lunch menu. In fact, I reviewed a panini from Wildwood Bagel before. Check out this link to read my review of the Honey Mustard Chicken panini.

Does that sandwich sound familiar? It should. I recently posted a panini recipe that is very similar to this one. (A year ago I mentioned that this panini reminded me of Panera's chicken bacon Dijon, so really all three sandwiches are very similar.) 
I was really tempted to get the same panini I ordered last year, but I wanted to try something new. My boyfriend suggested we each pick one and share.
So I had...

  • 1/2 Honey Mustard Chicken Panini
  • 1/2 Corned Beef Panini

    Both sandwiches are served on ciabatta bread with a bag of chips and a pickle spear.
The Honey Mustard panini is described as grilled chicken breast, honey-Dijon mustard, apple sauce, bacon, and aged provolone cheese.

The panini I had last year was absolutely amazing, but the one I from this weekend was really dry. I could barely taste the applesauce and mustard last year but they were definitely there adding moisture to the sandwich. This time there was little to no spread and I don't think there was any applesauce at all. It was a bit of a let down. My boyfriend commented on how dry it was and that he preferred the one I made him at home. Maybe this place is inconsistent with their sandwiches...

Thankfully the corned beef panini made up for the dry chicken one.

The corned beef panini
is described as corned beef, Swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing. 

I wasn't sure that I would like this panini, but it was wonderful. The corned beef was salty, but moist, and it complimented the sweet dressing very nicely. Personally I could barely taste the Swiss, there was just so much beef, but that didn't take away from the overall panini-experience.

I really like Wildwood Bagel, and I loved the corned beef panini, but how will it taste the next time I order it?
