Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich

Never underestimate the power of a sloppy over-sized fried chicken sandwich.

This came to me sizzling hot – and you would think –  though I had already burnt my tongue that I might slow down. Nope. That burning deliciousness, I could not let cool down.

Did I regret it? Sort of. Would I do this again? Oh, probably. See, my friends, the thing is when the first bite was so good – I can’t very well stop. You want to experience the tastiness repeatedly. The only problem with this technique is my food disappears. Always an issue if a dish is too good.

So where is this? It’s a place called Freeman’s in NYC. Bustling lunch spot. 

Worth the wait for solid food.

Buttermilk Fried Chicken Thigh Sandwich….heaven

This isn’t just a simple chicken sandwich. This, my friends, is something more. Heaven between your hands. It’s absolutely delicious. An Amazing Buttermilk Fried Chicken Thigh Sandwich made with an avocado chutney and pickled onion and a side of fries!!!!!! 

The combination of their in house made avocado chutney with the pickled onion. Such a compliment to the juicy and tender fried chicken. I could eat a bunch of those! (Okay, maybe two before I am in pain but I’d try. It’s the fries that fill you up too soon).

Nathan’s & Coney Island

Coney Island is a great to spend the day with anyone or even on your own. There’s so much to do and eat. On that fine point, you must have a Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog.

I’m no hot dog aficionado but it was  darn tasty! I topped it with mustard, ketchup and some relish. I usually like it with some onions, too.

And, in case you didn’t know. They are home to renowned hot dog eating contest in July! Check it out if you get the chance!

Los Tacos…yes, line up for it!

I’ve always wondered about places that have so much hype. I feel set up for disappointment. This time round, I will include myself in the masses that say, yes, to lining up.

I ordered two tacos – one grilled beef, carne asada  and one grilled chicken, pollo asado  with everything on it on a corn tortilla.  I had overheard a couple of regulars in line chatting, giving advice to her friend about her favourites. One of those circumstances when listening in might be handy.

It was heaven. Tender, juicy well marinated beef and chicken. Every bite was memorable due in part one of the best corn tortillas I have experienced in recent memory.

If I did not have an appointment to get to I would have hit that line again for more. The line you see, may be intimidating but it moves fairly fast. I was impressed all round.
