What? Two food reviews in one week? Has a certain sheep lost their mind?
That is a question that many have asked, but is completely irrelevant to this review. Today, we’re taking a look at Arby’s new King’s Hawaiian Big Kahuna sandwich.
So, prior to looking it up, I had no idea what was on this sandwich, other than what I assumed to be everything.
In reality, the Big Kahuna is crispy chicken, brisket, ham, lettuce, tomato, swiss cheese, and pineapple-habanero mustard on a King’s Hawaiian bun. Confusingly, I seem to remember bacon, roast beef, and possibly turkey, but I’m pretty sure this was the result of a meat-induced hallucination. For a place bragging about having “the meats”, I absolutely should’ve seen this coming. But how is it? Is it good? Did they fly to close to the sun and fall like a deep-fried Icarus?
The sandwich itself has a lot going on, and the pineapple-habanero mustard only tasted like a hint of pineapple juice (I ended up putting some Horsey Sauce on it halfway through because I wanted to see if I could cause my taste-buds to go on strike from confusion.) Everything on the sandwich was good. The chicken was great, the brisket was perfect, and the ham was decent (I’m not a super big fan of ham, but it was razor-thin sliced so I enjoyed it).
If you don’t like a sandwich with a lot going on, this is definitely not for you. This is the Frankenstein sandwich that foodies, bored teens, or high people make. The fact that it’s on a King’s Hawaiian bun just goes to show how completely bonkers the chefs at Arby’s are at crafting meatwiches. Delicious meatwiches.
I downed this with a Jamocha shake, further suggesting my need for a mental evaluation and a stomach pump. I regret nothing. It was amazing. Fantastic.
Now, before it physically grows legs and runs off, you seriously need to go get a King’s Hawaiian Big Kahuna at Arby’s.
