An Atlantan in New York: Taste of Home with Chickeeeen

Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken: Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York, NY, USA

Admittedly, I never would have picked this place to eat because I can’t believe that there is a place that could serve as good fried chicken outside of the South.  Two friends and I met here for an early dinner though because it happened to be in the middle of a heat wave, and this place was air-conditioned HAHA.  I did get a little excited because coming from the South, it’s hard to get good fried chicken in NYC. One of the things that I really loved were the three kinds of honey. Fried chicken and honey is one of the best combinations that I can truly recommend. I got the wings combo because I really love wings. It just has that perfect fried crispy skin to meat ratio, and it comes pack with a lot of flavor. Not to mention, it’s really fun to eat!

Fried Wings with sweet potato fries
– fantastic quantity, I actually had to take 1/3 of the wings home because I couldn’t even finish
– great crispy batter, not overly salty or overseasoned
– fries were nice and hot, not soggy
– there is something about the seasoning in the batter of the chicken that just doesn’t make it quite like my favorite fried chicken place back home in ATL. It’s not bad, but it’s just not ridiculously amazing. It’s also not quite like the crispiness of the korean chicken wings, my second favorite type of wings or fried chicken to eat.

I’d definitely come here to get a fried chicken fix but is it something that is ridiculously great? Ehh, I think if I could, I’d still hold out until I could make a trip back home. Definitely worth coming with friends if they wanted to get some fried chicken though and better than KFC!  You can find them in the Lower East Side (LES) right off 1st St:
