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!

Feast Your Eyes On This Jidori Fried Chicken Ramen Burrito

The name says it all: Jidori Fried Chicken Ramen Burrito.

An upcoming item created by upcoming spot Two Birds in Irvine, CA, for Foodbeast’s first-ever noodle festival NOODS NOODS NOODS, presented by Cup Noodles, is the brainchild of none other than Slapfish mastermind Andrew Gruel.

The burrito features ramen cooked in a smokey pork broth with a hint of dashi that’s paired with a creamy cabbage. Once the burrito is assembled, it’s topped with the crispy fried chicken and Two Birds’ signature Tiger Sauce.

Gonna take a second to contain our excitement.

Two Birds Chicken is set to open at Irvine’s Trade Food Hall sometime next year, but you can expect to get a taste of the new restaurant concept at Noods. If you’re interested in attending Foodbeast’s epic Asian food festival, held Jan. 14, you can purchase your tickets HERE. Noodle lovers are encouraged to get their slurp on.
