During the competition in The Best Sandwich In America, Richman went to 10 regions in the United States and picked his favorite sandwich in each region. Then, in the final episode, he did a special tournament similar to the NCAA Basketball Tournament to eliminate all but three sandwiches. The Top 3 were a pork sandwich from Philadelphia, a chicken sandwich from Savannah, Georgia and The Yardbird chicken sandwich from Slows BBQ in Detroit.
The pork sandwich from Philadelphia ended up winning. Even though The Yardbird didn't win, it looked so amazing on TV and I really wanted to try it.
|The Yardbird right before I ate it|
Last night, my family ate dinner at Slows BBQ. I ordered The Yardbird exactly like Adam Richman got it. When our food came to the table, I first tried the mac and cheese, which Richman has said is his favorite anywhere, and I liked it a lot. Then, I took my first bite of The Yardbird.
|Love at first bite|
It tasted so good and everything was so flavorful and delicious. My favorite parts were the chicken and the bacon. After I had taken a couple of wonderful bites, I decided to use Richman's signature BITE scale to describe how good the sandwich was:
B (Bread) - Very good and not too overpowering so you can focus on the interior.
I (Interior) - The flavors all blend together perfectly and the chicken is just right juiciness.
T (Taste) - Absolutely amazing. I was in love during the first bite. I could take the delicious chicken, bacon, mushrooms and the mustard sauce. My mouth felt so happy.
E (Experience) - I loved all of the food that I tasted from my family's plates. It was fun being in Detroit and I got to be with my family while enjoying the delicious Yardbird.
If you go to Slows, here is what you should get. For sides, waffle fries and mac and cheese. Put the apple flavor BBQ sauce on the fries. For meals, in addition to The Yardbird, try the baby back ribs. The ribs' outside have wonderful spices. Remember to get there fairly early or there will be a long wait.
