The Fried Chicken Dinner at Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City is one of the toughest reservations to get in the city. With that said, it’s also fair. All you have to do is get up real early (especially if you’re on the West coast) four weeks before your desired dining date. Log into their reservation system and hope that you’re one of the first ones there.
Is going through all of that trouble worth it? Eli Winkler, Vice President of Marketing, thinks so. The meal consists of two whole fried chickens. One fries up Southern-style with buttermilk and Old Bay while the other gets a decidedly more Korean spin, being triple fried and served with a spicy glaze. The chickens are served family style with accompanying mu shu pancakes, assorted vegetables, a few different dipping sauces, and a palate cleansing basket of fresh herbs. Momofuku suggests sharing this meal between 4-8 people. If you’re Jake Blues, you may want to order two just for yourself.
