A Sandwich a Day: Chowpatty Chicken at Juhu Beach Club in San Francisco
In this great nation of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
Preeti Mistry is known in the Bay Area for being the former executive chef at Google, and for representing us in season six of Top Chef. She's currently serving lunch at a pop-up in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, which features a short, interesting menu of Indian fusion sandwiches and other dishes. The Chowpatty Chicken sandwich is spicy from green chutney, and contains a delicious tumeric slaw, a nice contrast to the charred chicken.
Altogether, this is $7 well spent, though I'm also curious about Mistry's vegetarian sloppy joe and cardamom short rib sandwich. You'll find Mistry herself behind the counter, chatting with customers while toasting buns and assembling sandwiches.
Juhu Beach Club is operating on a month-to-month basis at the moment. The best way to keep up with their offerings and hours is to check @juhubeachclub.
