Reporter Food: Perfect Fried Chicken Sandwich from Jolly Pumpkin

(Crystal A. Proxmire, July 11, 2019)

Royal Oak, MI – A good fried chicken sandwich is a beautiful thing, and when Jolly Pumpkin calls theirs the “Perfect Fried Chicken Sandwich,” they are not kidding.

I recently had this decadent sandwich delivered to the coworking space at Patchwork Collective, thanks to Doordash.

The Perfect Fried Chicken Sandwich is made with free range chicken breast, sesame cilantro slaw, turmeric aioli, spicy pickle, sriracha brioche.

I also ordered the Cobb Salad, made with seasonal lettuces, shaved red onion, hard cooked egg, kalamata olives, garlic croutons, Amish blue cheese, oven roasted tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon, and buttermilk dressing.

Jolly Pumpkn has a handful of locations including Royal Oak, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, and Hyde Park Chicago. Their emphasis is on brewing artisan ales. In Royal Oak, Jolly Pumpkin is located at 419 S. Main Street. Find out more at
