Fried Chicken: Momofuku Fried Chicken Dinner

Momofuku

Ah yes, another large format dinner. Unlike the one I had at The Breslin, the Momofuku’s version was less gut busting and cheaper. For $125 (it was $100 when I went couple months ago), you get 2 whole fried chicken (half in Korean style and half in Southern style with Old Bay seasoning) with fixins which was a bowl of veggies, moo shu pancakes and sauces.

Many have said that David Chang makes one of the bestest fried chicken in the city. Well I’m going to have to disagree with those people. While the pieces of chicken were good they definitely weren’t great. The Southern style, I only got a hint of the Old Bay which I thought would’ve made the chicken more interesting if there was more of the seasoning. The batter was light, probably the lightest I had so far, which was good.

As for the Korean style, which was thrice fried compared to the Southern style’s single fried, was a little spicy and sticky from the glaze. I guess compared to the single fried Southern style, I was less thrilled about it.

While I don’t think it’s the best fried chicken, it was definitely good and between 8 people, it was my cheapest meal at Momofuku. Though at the end of the day, I was able to have a family style meal with 7 of my friends and that was pretty awesome.

Working For Big Gay Ice Cream At Luckyrice

Night Market
Got an email from the guys at Big Gay Ice Cream asking if I wanted to help them at the Luckyrice David Chang Night Market. I replied “OF COURSE ANYTHING FOR YOU GUYS!” I don’t think I really typed in all CAPS but I definitely had all CAPS in my mind when I replied to them. I had heard about this Night Market thing but when I went to the website it was already sold out. But hey-yo! Thanks to Doug and Bryan I got to go even though my main job was to help them pass out samples and snap photos for them.
