The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich from Eat Curbside starts with a chicken breast coated in breadcrumbs with Buffalo seasoning, which is then fried. It is nicely moist and satisfyingly crunchy, with bold peppery flavor throughout. The seasoning isn't overwhelmingly spicy, though, so it's safe for the heat-adverse. It's just a good peppery taste that stays with you with every bite of the sandwich.
Enclosing it all is a Mexican bolio (or bolillo) roll, which is sort of like a Mexican baguette. The crust has a nice loud crunch to it, but the interior is very soft. At times it feels like the ratio of chicken to bread is tilted a bit too much to the bread side, but the roll has such character that it's not a bad thing. Even though the chicken itself is very moist, taken as a whole with the bread and cheese a some bites can be drier than others.
Make no mistake, this sandwich is no fast food burger alternative, and the secret is in the selection of quality ingredients throughout. The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich isn't often featured on Eat Curbside's menu, but it would be a welcome sight if it were.
