Thai Fresh is an Austin-based restaurant that, like its name suggests, offers cuisine inspired by that found in Thailand.

One of the restaurant's more flavorful options is its chicken sandwich. The meal is stacked high due to the large piece of chicken in it, which has been "tenderized and marinated in coconut milk and Thai chilies," and then dipped in rice and tapioca flour along with potato starch before being deep fried, for a gluten-free crunch. The Thai Fresh sandwich includes mayo with fish sauce, lime juice and garlic for extra flavor, while also being layered with more Thai chilies and pickles.

Due to popular demand, the flavorful sandwich went from being a specialty by the restaurant to being placed on its regular menu.
