Fuku -- Spicy Fried Chicken Sandwich Meal

January 2020

This is not about the fried chicken at Momofuku Noodle Bar. That is two whole fried chickens, and costs $150. It comes with an herb basket.

This is not about the jeongol-style boiled chicken at Momofuku Kawi. Apparently they boil the whole thing, then cut it up and fry the dark meat. Then they charge you $64.

No, this is about the spicy fried chicken sandwich at Fuku. Were it up to me, it would be called the spicy fried chicken sandwich at Momofuku Fuku. Gotta keep the pattern going, even if it sounds like a skipping record.

The box it comes in.

Of course, if it were up to me, there would be some other changes. To start with, this chicken sandwich wouldn't be called spicy. I actually took it back to the counter to ask if I got the right dish. I did, but also I didn't.

The fries were standard waffle fries.

The cheese biscuit was a standard cheese biscuit. Or it would be, if I knew enough about cheese biscuits to know what a "standard cheese biscuit" is. The biscuit was very light white bread, and the cheese was…also there.

Even though the chicken wasn't spicy, it was well-cooked. Pretty tender, but not spicy. Breaded well, but not spicy. Notice a theme? Yeah, that's the problem here.
