I feel like I get more excited about Down N’ Out’s chicken burger specials than the beef these days. I’m not sure what’s happening to me.
I really like the flavours in their weekly special. Spicy, salty, with some heat. I didn’t get the hotter variety on offer, nor added jalapeños. There was enough heat to keep me interested, though my preference with heat is that it’s a supporting component.
The chicken coating was delicious and crunchy. It did hold a complex array of spices. The chicken itself was moist, though thinner than previous chicken pieces I’ve had from DNO. This put a greater emphasis on the coating.
The mayo played its part by adding creaminess and moisture.
The balance between the protein and condiments was spot on. The chicken shone, the other components filling in the textures and flavours.
I added bacon, as, well, how could I not?
The mac & cheese topper was sensational too.
I really enjoyed this weekly special.
