Mendocino Farms’ Not So Fried Chicken Sandwich

Mendocino Farms’ Not So Fried Chicken Sandwich

Just in time for summer, Mendocino Farms, the Los Angeles-based restaurant recognized for its commitment to the art of the sandwich and its use of seasonal ingredients from local Southern California farmers, will open the doors to its first Orange County location at 450 E. 17th St. in Costa Mesa on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 11 a.m. The new eatery will bring the restaurant’s lauded menu of farm-fresh sandwiches, salads, seasonal sides and soups to Orange County, adding to seven locations throughout Los Angeles. Designed by Bitton Design Group, the cozy space will feature natural elements with a polished flair in line with the concept’s ideology, including a 15-foot tall towering tree piercing through the ceiling, turf-covered benches, brasserie chalk art, an open kitchen showcasing the art of sandwich making, and a signature Mendocino Farms kids’ corner with a communal table and interactive chalkboard walls.

Serving lunch and dinner seven days a week, the menu will include signature sandwich favorites like the Pork Belly Banh Mi, a playful reinterpretation of the Vietnamese classic made with rich, caramelized Kurobuta Pork Belly, and the Not So Fried Chicken, a lighter version of a cold fried chicken sandwich with shaved free range chicken breast, Mendo’s krispies (which mimic a crunchy fried chicken buttermilk batter), herb aioli, juicy tomatoes, pickled red onions, and mustard pickle slaw served with a side of house made barbeque sauce. Salads include the Kale Caesar, a healthier version of a classic Caesar salad featuring Scarborough Farms butter lettuce and romaine, crispy wheatberries, and fresh local kale massaged with a light lemon parmesan vinaigrette.
