The Thai Sandwich is back!

The Thai Chicken Schnitzel Is Back at 7 Hens

ATLANTA (April 10, 2014) – 7 Hens eatery, the champion of chicken schnitzel in the Atlanta area, is celebrating the season with a limited time Thai chicken sandwich. The new spicy offering features house creations of Thai Slaw – crunchy cabbage, carrots and onions with teriyaki and sesame oil – and a spicy coconut curry sauce – coconut milk with red curry paste, kaffir lime leaves and Thai Basil. The Thai originally featured in early 2013 “but people kept asking about it, so we had to bring it back,” says owner Michael Gurevich.

7 Hens’ mission is to introduce chicken schnitzel sandwich as an alternative to the more commonly known fast-food items. The culinary philosophy of 7 Hens is about exploring food traditions from countries around the world, honing in on the representative elements, and serving those in a fun, down-to-earth, friendly ambiance.

This philosophy allows for 7 fixed countries to shine through: American, Mexican, French, Italian, Chinese, Indian, and German. The rotating countries in the past were the Thai, Jamaican, Korean, and Greek.

The chicken at 7 Hens is locally sourced and all-natural from Mar-Jac poultry in Gainseville, GA. The schnitzel is typically served as a sandwich ($7.49), but can also be served as a wrap ($7.49), plate ($8.99), or salad ($7.99). A build-your-own sandwich version is also available ($5.99).

7 Hens was started by Michael Gurevich in June 2012, after the former Israeli wanted to bring a “staple food item” from his native country to the Atlanta market. The fact that schnitzel is hugely popular in Europe and around the world but not so much in the USA made this young entrepreneur embark on the challenge of penetrating the market and creating a demand for chicken schnitzel sandwich as an alternative to burgers, pizza, standard sandwiches and burritos.

Schnitzel is a widely common cooking technique where one pounds, breads, and fries a piece of boneless meat to create a tender inside and crunchy outside.

7 Hens is located at 2140 North Decatur Road, Decatur, GA 30033 and is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. A second location in Sandy Springs is slated to open in August. For more information visit
