And I tried the new fried chicken sandwich yesterday for lunch - it was super tasty!
ok this is good to hear because i've had two friends tell me that they hated this sandwich. it made me sad because i haven't tried it yet and now i'm a little afraid to! but i have to try it! and the new cheesesteak with whiz! i did have the smoked tofu/pineapple pizza the other day, which was bangin'.
id be curious to know what they didnt like about it. If you dont like large pieces of seitan than I could see not liking it. The bread itself i wasnt 100% on board with... but thats nitpicking
Okay, glad I wasn't the only person who wasn't into the new rolls. They are narrow and hard to get all the sandwich fixings in. What I specifically liked about the new fried chicken sandwich was the seitan itself. Each seitan piece is wrapped in tofu skin and has a nice fried coating. I think your friends maybe didn't like the flavor combination with the sundried tomato tapenade AND the horseradish cream AND the shallots AND the arugula. Honestly, they could do without the tapenade and it would be a damn fine sandwich.
I tried some more new things: the charred jalapeno pineapple wings are okay - not much flavor other than "spicy." The cheese fries were good, but since I got delivery the cheese sauce kind of disappeared into the fries, so it's probably better if you get them fresh. I also got the new kale salad, and that was just okay. The mushrooms were not seasoned at all and there wasn't much kale, so it didn't really quantify the $9 price tag (even though the mushrooms are expensive.)
Super stoked on trying that new Hawaii pizza and my beloved potato pizza, which I think is a little different than the OG Yukon Gold pie.
