NYC Quick Chop! Fuku - Get the Fuku in me

Fuku - 163 First Avenue, NYC 10003

From the man that brought the world Momofuku (and all its variations - Ko, Ssam, Noodle etc), comes Fuku!

Fuku, located in the East Village, is a small shop with casual bar seating and cool beats serving up its speciality - Fuku fried chicken. When I (Mirko) heard about this, I had to head down to the Village and try this for myself.

I am going to keep this simple... go and try it! The chicken itself is served on a brioche-type bun and is spicy in flavour whilst not being oily in texture. Using brown meat (as opposed to just the white chicken breast) also provides a juicier product.

Fuku provides a dinner special where $15 gets you a chicken sandwich, wedges (as us Aussies call them) [note: during my last visit they have moved to fries] and a beer. In my opinion a decent price for the meal provided. The wedges/fries also have a spicy jalapeƱo salt giving nice sweet heat to the potatoes. Add some famous Ssam sauce and you are set!

Fuku dinner combo - $15
Dericious - as the packaging says!
And another from my latest visit!

For those of you who are fans of the entire Momofuku chain of restaurants, definitely add this to your must eat list... it will definitely satisfy those fried chicken cravings - trust me, I have been many a time!
