I moved to East Flatbush over a decade ago and the landscape and name both have changed. I randomly saw this restaurant pop up near my house and decided to try it. I got an egg and cheese frittata sandwich, with smashed avocado and I added fried chicken. The egg was a little burnt, like bottom of pan. Chicken was cooked perfectly. I had a latte, it was amazing. I would go back try a hard cider, not a beer drinker.
I am truly a Bk girl at heart, on a rare occasion I find myself in the Bronx. The menu was interesting, took me longer to decide on sweet or savory. We decided on mac and cheese as a share, so getting the chicken and waffle was an easier choice. The chicken was nicely fried and seasoned. The waffle had a nice crisp and flavor. Mac and cheese was made with shells amd was actually good. I would like to go back for happy hour and wings, my favorite.
I saw a picture of a glowing drink online somewhere and followed it to this place. The ambience wasn’t anything special, I almost thought I had the wrong place. The drink menu was very creative, I had two of them. One was a glowy kind of green and the other was smoky and had crushed and vodka infused gummy bears. Both drinks were delicious. For appetizers mussels served with rice, could have easily been a full meal and soy garlic wings. I only had the broth and veggies, not into mussels but it was really tasty. The wings were temperature hot and so crispy, they were perfect. A half crispy duck and basil fried rice with chicken for main courses. The sauce the duck was in was so good, the rice was cooked with the perfect amount of heat I’m glad asked for mild spice. Anymore would have made it unenjoyable. For dessert, fried ice cream!!! I would definitely go back to try some other drinks and dishes.
I’m in search of great restaurant fried chicken. This was on a random list I found. Apparently they have unlimited sides if you eat in, I had no time and the seating is very limited. I ordered a fried chicken dinner, it came with two sides. I’m always nervous about mac and cheese, so I went with collard greens and yams. They give you any two pieces you want, that was a nice surprise. The chicken was crispy, hot and moist. It was seasoned like my Aunt Sally’s. The collards were okay, better with hot sauce, yams were on point. Next time I’ll try the mac and cheese. They had some smothered turkey wings they looked really good. Definitely worth the trip uptown.
We have many options in New York for fried chicken sandwiches. I’m in search of at least three really great ones. What I like about Fuku, the sandwich, fingers and fries is all they do. They make a few sides that change, but the fried items remain the same. I was a little hesitant because I’m used to the breast, when fried and seasoned well, amazing. This fried thigh was seasoned well and fried well. Watching them make it, is a nice touch, it was served piping hot. It was juicy, crispy the spread and pickles were the perfect addition. We added a touch of hot sauce, the bun was soft and so tasty, you wanted more. I was honestly surprised that I didn’t want something cool, like lettuce. They offer a slaw, pickled radish I wanted to try the classic sandwich as they sell it. It needed nothing else. We ordered a combo, it came with fries and a can soda. We also had the fingers and smoky slaw. The fries were lightly dusted with a light seasoning that had a slight kick of heat to it. Everything was great, definitely going back.

Happy 30th! To celebrate my homegirl’s birthday she choose to dine at Sons of Essex. Fantastic cocktail menu and wide variety of southern flair foods. We ordered a little of everything. Deviled eggs, wings, mac and cheese and calamari to start. All were great. Mains, rib eye, lamb chops (lollipop style), fried chicken and braised short ribs. The gremelata on the rib eye was overwhelming. It was coated in it. May have been better on the side or as more of a dipping sauce. (See pic below) The fried chicken was great with the hot sauce, it was hot, crispy could have used more seasoning. The lamb chops were perfect as well as the short rib. The biscuits were okay, cornbread was good. The brussel sprouts were delicious. Roasted corn was okay. For dessert we had Nutella panini, cheese cake and chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The panini bread was a little to crispy for me. The cake was delicious and adding ice cream to the panini was much better. They did a wonderful job of making the birthday girl feel special, name on chalkboard and a sparkler. The cocktails and appetizers definitely worth the trip back.
