There are two great things about this pop-up’s most recent location at the old Phở Bắc boat on Jackson. One, we love boats of all kinds, especially when they serve food. And two, they’ve just started selling a fried chicken sandwich. With pickled carrots, daikon, cucumbers, and buttermilk aioli, there’s already a ton of flavor. But that’s before picking one of their house seasonings or sauces to finish the chicken, which include a shake of lemon pepper, honey garlic teriyaki sauce, KFC (gochujang, honey, soy sauce, and garlic), or the Mangosteen (fish sauce, lime, garlic, and Thai chili). Order any of these with confidence, but the citrusy heat of the Mangosteen sauce complements all of the other components of this sandwich perfectly.
