I apologize for being so city-specific in the following post, but I must.
All right. There aren’t words in my vocabulary to describe how delicious this sandwich is. During the first twenty years of my life, I never cared to order anything curry-related on any menu ever. Let that be known. No real reason for that either, just didn’t seem like my sort of deal. And long ago, on a dewey summer’s day, during the lunch break of a long-forgotten and insignificant internship in the city, someone gave me a bite of this sandwich. That moment altered my curry outlook from there on in. And I hope you understand how monumental that statement is to make.
If the above photo does not make it look divine, that is due to my inexperience photographing my food. I’m not sure I would be proud to have such a skill, but alas I do not.
I first ate this baby in 2004 and it’s still in my top ten list of foods I crave in this city.
What: The Coronation Chicken Sandwich on white bread (this is the only white bread I still allow myself, because it just works better with the sandwich) and it’s $7.95
Where: Tea & Sympathy - 108 Greenwich Avenue, there’s also a British shop next door (it’s owned by the same management) where you can get it to-go.
When: It’s only available before 5pm.
Why: Because I said so, dummy.
