I had a hankering for a chicken sandwich so I swung by Hi Five Chicken on the Burnaby/New West border just in tine to grab their lunch special; a Home Style Spicy Sandwich with a side of wedge cut fries.
Seeing as I knew that I would more than likely have to share my chicken sandwich with my kids – they always want “just a bite” I asked that the sandwich be the regular chicken – not spicy.
The answer; “no problem!”
Same as my previous visits to Hi Five Chicken, the sandwich – as an aside, I wonder what is the difference between a chicken sandwich and a chicken burger – the sandwich was really good.
In the sandwich there were two very large pieces of fried chicken, a couple of slices of tomato, a generous amount of shredded lettuce, and lots of dressing all sandwiched between the buns. Honestly, it is a beautiful sandwich!
I will say that while there is lots of chicken, today the meat was a little tougher than I have had it in the past. The breading on the chicken is excellent and holds together really well. Maybe I just got a couple of pieces of chicken that were tougher than the rest?
I am not a fan of potato wedges, however, the wedges at Hi Five Chicken were pretty good – not cut too thick so they were cooked through and not too “mushy” inside. I’m pretty sure a fans of potato wedges would enjoy the wedges just fine.
Overall, for $5 – this is an excellent chicken sandwich deal. $5? Yes please!
