Review: Big Fat Sandwich

Big Fat Sandwich has entered Gurgaon recently, setting up a cute little place in DLF Phase 2, in collaboration with Suchali’s Bakehouse and Brew 16. The outlet has minimalistic, sharp décor with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on two sides bringing in a lot of natural light.bfs1Their sandwich menu is really exciting- with a variety of veg, non-veg and even vegan options to choose from, and each sandwich can be customized by choosing the type of bread you want to go for out of sesame, sourdough, multigrain and rye. And if burgers are more your thing, each sandwich can be converted into a burger with an option to choose from sesame, brioche or multigrain buns.

The breads are all fresh and grilled to perfection, and are loaded with fillings. The quantity of cheese is apt, the meats are top-notch in terms of quality, and the sauces are flavorful.

We had the Grandma’s Special sandwich in the multigrain bread. The bread was filled with a crispy parmesan infused crusted chicken breast, lots of gooey melted mozzarella, and a flavorful and tangy marinara sauce, along with fresh, crunchy lettuce and tomatoes. We really liked these classic flavor combinations, and the marinara was amazing, but the chicken was a bit unevenly cooked- while the center of the chicken breast, which was thicker, was nice and juicy, some of the thinner edges had gone a bit dry. But barring that, it was a hearty sandwich served with a delicious dipping sauce and nicely made fries.

We also had the Forbidden Belly, which consisted of juicy slow cooked pork belly that just melted like butter at the touch of the knife, and was glazed in a robust, thick hoisin sauce with sesame seeds. The sauce was perfectly balanced in terms of flavors and had a nice smoky taste.bfs2We relished these dishes along with some nicely made Lemon Ice Tea and Cold Coffee blended with vanilla ice-cream.

This is a great place for breakfast or even for a nice evening snack along with some tea or coffee.
