Bakesale Betty, Oakland: Fried Chicken Sandwich

12 of 27

Alison Barakat, a.k.a. “Betty,” worked as a line cook at Chez Panisse before donning an electric-blue wig and setting up shop for herself. Her fried chicken sandwich is as simple as it is famous: buttermilk battered breast, sourced from Fulton Valley Farms, and spicy, tangy slaw with jalapeños, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and mustard on an Acme torpedo roll. Add Frank’s hot sauce to taste. bakesalebetty.com
