I was a fan of Angelo Sosa's now closed sandwich spot Xie Xie, and am happy to say, Mr. Sosa is serving some really good Asian influenced sandwiches at his new Midtown spot, Social Eatz.
Before the NYC Foodette (NYC Foodie's younger sister) and myself dug into some flavorful sandwiches, we started with some hot wings. Crispy wings glazed in a sauce of tamarind, garlic, shallots, palm sugar and togarashi (a Japanese spice blend of red chili, roasted orange peel and black sesame.) These wings were truly excellent. Tasty, sticky, goodness.
Both the Kung Pao Sandwich, (certified organic chicken, soy-sesame marinated, then iron-seared with thai chili, finished with smooth roasted peanut spread), as well as the Bulgogi burger (charred beef, sauced with soy, sugar, scallion, garlic and sesame oil then garnished with cooled cucumber kimchee, kewpee and a japanese mayo), were great. They both packed great flavor, and each had a the perfect kick. I recommend both.
