I found this place online in a hungry search for “cheap restaurants in Carroll Gardens.”
I had the Bon Ju. I was pretty excited – curry, pickled vegetables, grilled chicken! What’s not to like? Unfortunately, I found this chicken sandwich to be underwhelming. The baguette was a little dry, and cut the roof of my mouth like Capt’n Crunch. The chicken was a little greasy. The walnut-curry marinade was delicious, as were the veggies. But I wouldn’t order it again.
The Shortrib Pastrami, on the other hand, was amazing. These guys make all their meat in-house, and they do it well. I would eat this sandwich forever. The meat was tender, and there was just enough of the horseradish mustard to complement, but not overwhelm, the rest of the sandwich.
Verdict: definitely stop by, but stick to the meats like the pastrami and pork shoulder.
