FowlBread: Chicken, Resurrected.

When the selling point of a new restaurant is chicken sandwich, it’s understandable to have a mix of curiosity and low expectations. Because while chicken in fried form is salivating, people rarely get giddy about the prospect of chicken sandwich.

FowlBread has just managed to prove that chicken can be as exciting – and for everyone’s benefit. The newly opened restaurant in BGC owned by Dwight Co, the same guy behind Wrong Ramen and Hole in the Wall, has taken the safe chicken and turned it into something mindblowing.

The restaurant –with your house in the 90’s vibe to it – has a one-page menu with more drinks and booze than food. That, we think, just really makes it faster to get food on the table.

Besides, the only thing to order first and immediately is the chicken sandwich, which, as it turns out, is damn good.

The sandwich has a lot of excellent elements in terms of taste and texture – you get a tender slab of chicken slathered with creamy tangy mayo, topped with thin slices of radish and pickle, and jammed between a glorious bun that holds firm with every bite. The pickles, which typically are a sad, overlooked afterthought to sandwiches, get to shine here. Sliced into thin rectangles and slipped on top of the chicken, it adds a tang that balances out the richness of the sandwich.

The crowning glory of FowlBread’s masterpiece, though, is this thick layer of chicken skin that cracks easily upon bites, emanating a loud crunch that can be easily heard even with the music playing. It’s radical and smart to put a hunk of crispy skin, but ultimately, it’s what makes this dish worth going back for.

                    If the chicken sandwich isn’t enough, try their Garlic Noodles, which are pretty tasty. Just make to share with someone and pop in some mints after.   

Quick tip: The place has only less than 20 seats inside, so best come at off hours.
Hooray for: Attentive service. Gorgeous copper containers. Good playlist (Chet Baker, ftw!).
