This eatery is delightfully immersive and themed as a former lab facility that has been modified into a quick service restaurant. There’s outdoor seating as well as bar seating, and the decor is elaborately themed as well.

Wherever you look at Pym Test Kitchen, you’re sure to find colossal soda cans, condiment bottles, and even cell phones. The food is also delightfully themed, such as the “Not So Little Chicken Sandwich.”

The “Not So Little Chicken Sandwich” option, which goes for $15.49, used to be truly huge. In the photos above, we can see that on the left is what the entree looked like in 2022, while the sandwich on the right is a recent picture from just a month ago.

The author, Ed Aguila, confirms that both photos were taken with the same iPhone camera, so the camera isn’t affecting the perceived size of either sandwich. He also confirms that “even after taking a few bites,” the difference in portion sizes is incredibly noticeable, dampening the experience.
