Back again at Panera today. Since I’d never had their flatbreads before, I decided to try a couple. The menu listed four options:
- Mediterranean Chicken (chicken, curried lentil hummus, feta, cucumber, napa cabbage blend, tzatziki sauce)
- Thai Chicken (chicken, cilantro jalapeno hummus, napa cabbage blend, cilantro, peanut sauce, Thai vinaigrette)
- Southwestern Chicken (chicken, black bean hummus, feta, southwest corn blend, napa cabbage blend, cilantro, BBQ ranch)
- BBQ Chicken (chicken, frizzled onions, mozzarella, smoked gouda, fresh baby spinach, cilantro, BBQ sauce)
I went for Thai Chicken and Southwestern Chicken. Survey says… just okay. The sauces in both sandwiches didn’t really taste distinctively Thai or Southwestern, which left me bummed and confused, and the flatbread itself was less chewy than I was expecting. I guess the overall meal was okay from a taste standpoint though. Likely won’t order it again, but may consider the BBQ chicken flatbread since I do like BBQ-chicken-you-name-it.
I did have a coupon for $1 off a pastry, so there was that… strawberry rhubarb mini-cake here I come!
Do you eat at Panera? What do you order there?
