Cobble Hill: Van Horn’s Fried Chicken Sandwich
Ok, so this is the second fried chicken sandwich on our list, but really, this sandwich is just that good (and also a totally different beast than the Kung Pao Chicken sandwich from Northeast Kingdom). The sesame seed bun is made especially for Van Horn by legendary Brooklyn bakery Caputo’s, and the unbelievably juicy and tender chicken breast comes from legendary Brooklyn butcher Paisano’s. The chicken itself is drenched in tangy buttermilk and achieves the perfect crust, the kind that doesn’t just break, it shatters under the pressure from your teeth in the best possible way. Topped with red cabbage slaw for a different kind of crunch, this is Southern food the Brooklyn way—super satisfying.
