A Sandwich a Day: Num Pang Coconut Tiger Shrimp
In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
I'm not usually one to turn down pork belly, but the Coconut Tiger Shrimp sandwich ($7.50) is my favorite of Num Pang's tasty Cambodian offerings. The shrimp are tossed in coconut milk and lightly grilled, then piled on a toasted Parisi Bakery baguette with pickled carrots, fresh cilantro, cucumber, chili mayonnaise, and a sprinkle of toasted coconut flakes. It's just barely sweet, filling without being heavy. Extra Sriracha is available for those who like it hot.
