Flaming Funky Chicken - $9
Oh My God! I should have known better from my previous experience with Soul Cat's Hot Mess. This Sandwich is hot, I mean lava hot, I mean Man vs. Food hot. I feel sweat running down my face as I write this. Ok I'll stop my moaning and groaning now. The mesquite grilled chicken breast was tender and moist, perfect for a sandwich. The sandwich is topped with melted Swiss cheese, delicious caramelized onions, and sweet grilled red pepper. Served on a nice french loaf. There is a lot to like about this sandwich, for me I just need a little less heat. Synopsis: If you can't take the heat, you need to get something else from this kitchen.
Basic food service fries topped with Swiss cheese, more of those great caramelized grilled onions and red peppers, chopped grilled chicken and very good sweet and spicy sauce. I'm glad a took a few bites of the fries before the Flaming Funky Chicken. The sauce is spicy, but after the other sauce it seemed mild. This sauce is great and I may ask for it on the Funky Chicken sometime. I was amazed the fries never got really soggy like food service fries are apt to. Synopsis: Sweet, spicy, and savory.
Something very nice, Soul Cat has a $5 and under menu, check it out.
