Coronation chicken fit for Queen Elizabeth II

Coronation chicken is a common thing in the UK.
It is basically chicken, raisins, herbs and curry spices mixed with a creamy mayonnaise-based sauce which can be eaten as a salad or used to fill sandwiches.
This dish was served in a banquet for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 which is why it is called Coronation chicken.

Hong Kong's Pret A Manger now has Coronation chicken sandwiches which has been modified for the HongKongers because they just love mango, hence mango is added.

Coronation chicken:

The neat pile of Coronation chicken sandwiches with the British flag stickers reminds me of the TV series Coronation street.

The Hong Kong version has chicken, coronation sauce, mango chutney, toasted almonds, tomatoes and salad mix.

The taste is fruitier compared to the original because the mango and toasted almond slices give it an extra crunch.
They have also put salad in it too to make it feel lighter.
Nice sandwich packaging:

pure pret still lemon ginger:

Refreshing water with lemon and ginger juice.
It was a lovely balance of lemon and ginger which was thirst quenching.
