Restaurant Review for The Cajun Chicken Sandwich at NOLA

In Austria they call it “schnitzel”. In Italy, “cotoletta alla milanesa”. When more than a few shiploads of Italians decided to high-tail it for South America, they brought that breaded cutlet with them and decided to make it easy to order in a restaurant by shortening the name of the dish to just plain ole “milanesa”. In the Southern United States, breaded cutlets, likely brought primarily by German immigrants morphed into what is known as the “chicken fried steak”, which is prepared in a similar fashion, but omits the bread crumbs on the breaded cutlet.

As far as I’m concerned, those bread crumbs are just wasted carbohydrates. Just give me some chicken dipped in eggs and buttermilk and covered in wheat flour and flash-fry that cutlet or a big chicken breast in hot oil so that the breading gets extra crispy. Hey, I liked the eleven herbs and spices that Colonel Sanders put on his chicken, but truth be told, I was elated when the Colonel’s restaurant succumbed to demand and created the extra-crispy variety I had learned to love.

Add a little ground cayenne to that flour before you cover the chicken in it and the whole thing gets even better. That’s how they do it in Louisiana. And that’s how they do it at NOLA in Buenos Aires. I don’t even need to describe the sandwich. You can just look at it and see it’s a special creation. Give the patrons a big squeeze-bottle of some sweet, spicy sauce to pour over the top and you’ve got a winner. That’s the fried-chicken sandwich at NOLA.

And you can wash it down with a Broeder’s craft beer on tap, and for good measure order up a bowl of Louisiana gumbo.

Woooo-eeeeee. Now that’s a meal.
