4505 Meats' Chicken Yum Yum Sandwich

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Saturday's Ferry Plaza farmers' market was drizzly and humid, the kind of day that makes you seek shelter in the warm embrace of a hot meal. We wound our way around the market, until something on the menu at 4505 Meats decided it for us, with a name ― Chicken Yum Yum ― we found impossible to resist. If nothing else, we needed a little humor.

The name might have been playful, but the sandwich was seriously delicious: a spiced chicken filet dipped in a thin cornmeal batter and fried, wedged onto a toasted and buttered bun dressed with peppery aioli, and decorated with a tangy mixture of lightly pickled zucchini, peppers, jalapeños, and tomatoes that seemed to express summer better than the sky seemed capable of.
