I have come to the conclusion that when a fried chicken sandwich is served with a baguette like bread (long and crusty), it's not going to be good. The problem for me is that, there are too much crunchy texture from the bread and the chicken. And and the chicken just gets lost inside the sandwich.
And that is what happened at The Smith. After eating half of it, my teeth got tired of chewing. The chicken needed more seasoning to punch through the bread and lettuce and paprika aioli. Though the fries were tasty.
