La Brasserie Street food cart’s lone, titillating entrée item has sold out regularly since opening April 11.
To date, its ‘fresh out’ record time is 1 p.m. â€” a mere two hours after beginning lunch service.
Causing the kerfuffle is a gravy-laden, beer brined chicken sandwich, aptly named, Brass Chicken Sandwich ($6.25).
If its crispy fried onions were discarded, I’d run the risk of confusing the warm creation for a delicious, edible mini pillow.
But the skinny, deep-fried onions cannot be omitted. They are softly sweet and addictively crunchy â€” perhaps a sell-out kind of side dish of their own someday?
The floury buttermilk bun could’ve passed as a Portuguese and the juicy rotisserie chicken â€” treading in hot gravy â€” lacked any beer flavour.
Regardless, the assemblage was the kind of thing to warm bellies on drizzly Vancouver spring days.
