NEW YORK CITY | Fuku (East Village) is one of several Fuku outlets in New York City and is the creation of famous restaurateur David Chang, of Momofuku fame. The proposition at Fuku is very simple – a fried chicken sandwich joint that serves a variety of chicken and seasonal offerings, along with beer, slushies, and a few other things.

The sandwich that started it all is the must order item if you haven’t been to Fuku before. Fuku’s Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich features a steamed Martin’s potato roll filled with sustainable and locally sourced chicken thighs that have been marinated in habanero purée, coated in buttermilk, doused with spices, and deep-fried. Added to this are some pickles and fermented-chickpea butter. It’s deceptively simple, and one of the best chicken sandwiches we have ever tried. The chicken is juicy and tender, the coating crispy and addictive, and the balance of salt and spice just right.

Keep an eye out for any special sandwiches too. When we visited there was a delicious kimchi fried chicken sandwich on offer. For those who want some thing else (in addition to a burger, nobody comes here and doesn’t get a burger) there’s a healthy super green salad, fries, bites, crispy squash rings and a Momofuku Milk Bar compost cookie.

For drinks, Fuku’s liquor license means that along with soda and a frozen hot chocolate slushie you’ve got a few beers and sake, and a rotating soju slushi – for examplep ipneapple and ginger.

At the end of the day there’s no need to over-complicate things. If you’re in New York City and want a fried chicken sandwich, you’re not going to get any better than what’s available at Fuku.
