Also known as the Chook Sandwich, the grilled chicken sandwich from Sheep Station in Park Slope starts with a split ciabatta, the halves lightly toasted. Creamy, slightly salted, avocado puree is smeared on the top bun; on the bottom, a lime-curry mayo. That richly spiced curried mayo is a small touch, but one that makes a substantial difference in elevating this sandwich from "just" grilled chicken. The chicken is grilled, chopped and tossed with more of the mayo—enough to lightly coat the pieces but not overwhelm. You taste the curry element first, but it finishes on a bright zip of lime. Couple with lettuce and tomato and you have a complete meal. The side salad is forgettable, but certainly aids in making you feel slightly more virtuous after great, but hefty sandwich.
