We tried: Artizen’s new nanban chicken sandwich
Well, chef Brandon Lee has moved on from his spicy chicken at Artisan by MW. Today, he unveiled his latest party fowl: the nanban chicken sandwich.
It’s a lot like the appetizer that Japanese restaurants often feature, very tender and moist fried chicken cutlets with an onion-y tartar sauce. But here, Lee has made his own tartar sauce, mixed with mentaiko and chunks of egg. He’s also topped the chicken with shredded cabbage, for a burst of freshness in each bite.
Will Chen and I got a first taste of this new sandwich! Check it out as soon as possible, though, because it’s only available until Lee gets bored and creates a new one.
