A Sandwich A Day: Fried Pimento Cheese at Hill Country Chicken

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

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.

"What is that?" more than one person asked when we unwrapped our order from the newly opened Hill Country Chicken. A naked chicken patty? A pounded fried biscuit? Nope—a fried pimento cheese sandwich ($5). One that's really just a glorified slab of deliciously fried cheese. The skinny little creation is fried up to a golden brown—the white bread all but disappearing, the sharp, tangy pimento oozing thick and molten from each bite. Absurd? A little. Tasty? You betcha. We'd order it again in a heartbeat.
