Lunch at The Jalopy

May 28, 2010

A couple of weekends ago, we had lunch at The Jalopy. I was excited to try it… it’s a Mack truck transformed into a kitchen, serving up rotisserie chicken sandwiches and freshly fried chips. I like the murals.

The menu is pretty interesting… every sandwich is the same bread, same rotisserie chicken, but with different toppings and sauces.

There’s a chute in the back where they’ll drop your sandwich for you. Cute!

Our chips came out first… I think these are just regular veggie chips, but they’re flash fried and sprinkled with your choice of seasonings. We chose salt and vinegar and dill. They were still warm, which was nice.

I chose the Folletto: pepperoncini brine, housemade pickled peppers, scallions and parsley salad. I liked the pickles… and there was an extra slice of bread in the middle to sop up all the juices.

Natalie chose The Original, with chicken demi-glace and red onion marmalade. Pretty solid.

Justin had the Son Hong, with sweet and savory chili sauce, pickled onions, cucumbers, and cilantro salad.

Overall, it was good. I think if you like this style of sandwich, this is the place for you. I didn’t like that the bread was so soft and soggy that it fell apart midway through. I wanted the chicken pieces to be bigger… it was in tiny chunks, and since it’s not dressed in anything, it has a tendency to just kind of fall out of the sandwich. It’s like there’s nothing in it to really hold it all together. Actually, I think I’d like it better as an open-faced sandwich. Still, the owner was super-friendly and laid-back, and the Mack trailer is pretty cool. :)

      The chute is really fun… It’s kind of exciting to see your sandwich slide down, though i wonder how many have fallen off the sides of the chute… :)
