Cancel your lunch plans. David Chang, the culinary mastermind behind the Momofuku empire, is launching his much-anticipated spicy fried chicken sandwich concept restaurant today -- Wednesday, June 10, at 11am. That's right: Your delicious, handheld-fried-chicken prayers have been answered, New York.
As Chang revealed back in March, the experimental restaurant, or Fuku, is devoted to making killer fried chicken sandwiches, focusing on just one badass-sounding spicy chicken sandwich upon opening. According to Fuku, the sandwich consists of chicken thighs brined and marinated in habanero puree, coated in buttermilk, dredged in a blend of spices, and then deep fried until crispy. Then, they serve it up on a Martin's potato roll with house-made pickles and Fuku butter. Apparently, there are additional fried chicken sandwiches in the works. But this sounds like it'll definitely hit the spot.
