It’s like a gussied up McChicken sandwich

The NoMad’s been pushing out some fantastic collaboration burgers, most recently a mustardy, cheesy creation from Maude and Gwen chef Curtis Stone, but starting April 3, The NoMad Truck’s chicken burger comes from the mind of Ludo Lefebvre (whose Mind of a Chef season is currently airing).

Ludo’s chicken burger is contains crispy chicken skin, iceberg lettuce, pickles, and bearnaise sauce for a strong Francophilic take on the format. The first service will start at Trois Mec (naturally) with service from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 716 Highland on April 3.

That crispy chicken skin should give the burger a kind of fried chicken sandwich feel, but with the density of the ground chicken. If anything it really looks and feels very much like a gussied up McChicken, sesame seed bun and all. Except bearnaise instead of industrially produced mayonaise.

The NoMad Truck normally parks every Sunday at Smorgasburg in Downtown LA.
