Two Birds Just Debuted A Pineapple Glazed Chicken Sandwich

Andrew Gruel, founder of Slapfish, Two Birds, and Butterleaf, is constantly working to expanding his culinary empire. Gruel is known for pushing food boundaries in the best way possible – and his reinvention of fried chicken in the form of this “Inside Out” Pineapple Glazed Chicken Sandwich is just one example.

This masterpiece comes straight out of the Two Birds kitchen – a well-known Orange County eatery that uses only organic, free-range Jidori chicken.

In celebration of National Lemonade Day on August 20, Two Birds teamed up with Hubert’s Lemonade to bring you this exclusive pineapple glazed chicken sandwich. Starting with two perfectly fried pieces of Jidori chicken as the bun (yes, you heard us), this sandwich only gets more intense with every layer.

Some consider Jidori to be the Kobe beef of chicken, thanks in part to a strictly organic raising process, which gives the meat an extremely robust flavor. If you’ve never experienced Jidori chicken, it’s about time you did.  

To top it off, this inside out masterpiece is stuffed with grilled pineapple, braised pork shoulder, and shredded carrots, and is then smothered in a Hubert’s Pineapple and Ginger Lemonade Glaze for a sweet and savory finish.

If you’re looking to celebrate National Lemonade Day the Two Birds way, mark your calendars now, because this sandwich will phase out on September 3.

See you there!

The Counter: Custom Built Burgers (Irvine, CA)

A few weeks ago Victor (VYaniePhoto) and I were cruisin’ around in Irvine, and I mentioned to him about The Counter, a place he had never experienced. In typical Victor Yanie manner, he went all out and ordered their one pound burger. Basically this burger could feed a small African village, but that’s how Vic rolls, Foodbeast to the core. If you haven’t ever been to The Counter, you really should go because it’s quite awesome and the food quality is amazing. Check the rest of our trip after the jump.

Craving: Grilled Pineapple


It’s hot out, the California sunshine is shining and aside from making me think back of good times in Hawaii, this is definitely fitting for where I live. Grilled pineapple for days is all I can say.
