In this great country 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 the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.
In addition to tacos, the Mexicue food truck continues their Mexican-Southern American hybrid cooking with a short menu of sliders. Of the three kinds on hand, the BBQ Brisket ($5) was undoubtedly my favorite. Soft chunks of brisket are seasoned with a house "Mexicana" rub and doused in arbol barbecue sauce, giving the meat a smoky, sweet flavor with a hint of spice. The brisket doesn't disappoint: it's tender and moist without being fatty. I also appreciated that the soft brioche bun had a sweetness that complemented the sweetness of the BBQ sauce.
Still, I would have cried out for more heat if the habanero aioli slaw hadn't been legitimately spicy. The vinegar and crunch from the cabbage also saves the sandwich from falling apart into a mushy mess. Chunks of creamy avocado add a fresh, creamy flavor that cuts against the meatiness of the brisket. The sliders are almost big enough to fill up one person for lunch. But believe me, after eating one, you're going to wish you had two.
