The Foxy BBQ Sandwich at City Silo in East Memphis

If there's one thing we love, it's a good collaboration. Over the past few months, we worked with our buddies Scott Tashie and Will Byrd of City Silo in East Memphis to create a brand-new TCV-inspired sandwich. It's called the Foxy BBQ Sandwich. (Get it? Inspired by Justin Fox Burks!) The Foxy BBQ is just one of the amazing new things on the City Silo menu, which includes tons of vegan and gluten-free options in addition to the fresh-pressed juice that you always ordered at Cosmic Coconut.

You know you love the TCV Mushroom Debris Po Boy at Kelly English's restaurant The Second Line, so now you can have the Foxy BBQ for lunch and the TCV Debris for dinner. (Breakfast is still up to you…but hey, if anyone's up for working with us on a TCV option for that, just let us know!)

Our recipe for the 'meat' of City Silo's dish is in our second cookbook, The Chubby Vegetarian. It's a variation of our Pulled BBQ Spaghetti Squash and our Spaghetti Squash Ribs, and some Purple Cabbage Slaw goes on top. We wanted to make something different from our usual Italian-style Stuffed Spaghetti Squash; we thought there had to be a variation that would work well.

So if you want to know even more, check out today's video from Michael Donahue of The Commercial Appeal HERE; you can watch Will make the sandwich and then hear Scott talk about how it all came about.

We got to be among the first to try the Foxy BBQ at a menu preview lunch at City Silo over the holidays, and we absolutely loved it along with all the other dishes and the inventive, healthy lattes and juices. Please let us know if you try this new Memphis spot or if you plan to order our new sandwich this week!
