Two recent sandwiches to report. First up is the fried chicken sandwich at Lunetta All Day. This looked great but tasted merely okay. The chicken itself was well fried with nice seasoning on the crust. But the flavor was completely overwhelmed by the sauces and veggies on the sandwich. Also, the meat was all white and thus a little dry.
The fries were a bit of a turnoff tbh. They were freshly cut and thus not as crisp as I would have liked. Also, there was a faint fishy smell, as if the oil was rancid or had been used to fry seafood right before. The smell lingered on my fingers even after lunch, which was kind of gross.
The space itself is gorgeous. Bright and airy. They did a great job on the renovation. My friend enjoyed his chicken salad more than I did my sandwich, so I’ll probably give that a try if I go there again.
I also recently tried the doner kebab from Berlins on 3rd. I’m a huge fan of Berlin-style doner kebab and this definitely scratched the itch. They had marinated cabbage and sauces (I got the original yogurt and the spicy) as well as actual pide bread. The meat itself was fine but did not seem freshly cut.
I’d probably go to Berlin’s more often if it were located better. That part of town is becoming undriveable with all the construction and traffic. And while they have a parking lot, it’s really cramped.
