Num Pang Launches Their Fall Specials
Num Pang (which has a Midtown location on 41st btw. Lex+3rd) recently unveiled its new Fall specialty items, so naturally I hightailed it over to check them out. I set my sights on the Roasted Fig sandwich ($8.25 + tax): Kadota figs, chilis, bacon, chili mayo and the usual veggie suspects of cucumber, pickled carrots, and cilantro.
Oh boy this is delicious. The roasted fig sandwich is basically a fall interpretation of their summer peach sandwich. If you missed that one, try this one and you’ll get the idea. The figs are tender, slightly caramelized, and sweet but not cloying. The bacon is so plentiful that it should probably be listed in the title of the sandwich as a star ingredient. I didn’t see any chilis, although I was so busy stuffing my face with this deliciousness that I may have missed them. There was definitely some heat to this sandwich, but it could’ve been from the chili mayo that comes standard on every sandwich.
Not into figs, or looking to try something different for fall, you might want to go with the Roasted Turkey Breast with spiced cranberry apple chutney ($8.25 + tax) instead. On my next visit, I’ll be getting that alongside the Hot Ginger Apple Cider with Bourbon Roma Apple Chunks ($2.25 + tax).
