Fried Chicken Sandwich at Bar Bolinas

I finally found my new favorite fried chicken sandwich. My previous favorite was Allswell but it's sister restaurant, Bar Bolinas, takes two steps further by using a Dutch crunch and having the choice of regular or spicy. The Dutch crunch is an awesome bread. A little chewy in the center and crispy edges.

$15 (Regular or spicy; comes with fries)

Marietta

I finally made it! After yeeaaaaarrs of thinking about it, I finally made it to Marietta for their fried chicken. Marietta is the sister restaurant to Peaches HotHouse. Most of the food world seems to concentrate on Peaches HotHouse and their Nashville inspired hot chicken but I have to say........I enjoyed the chicken at Marietta more. The lemon-honey brine gave the chicken a slight tangy flavor which I quite enjoyed and the crust was good and crispy.

$16 (3 pieces with salad)

Yafa Deli

If you walk by Yafa Deli on Fulton St, it looks just like a regular deli but if you decide to walk in, you'll quickly notice their glass case of fried chicken. They sell by pieces (wings, thighs, drumsticks, breast) and I have no idea when they make them. One time I walked in, the case was full of fried chicken and they tasted really good and one time there were only thighs and they were kind of dry. But the seasoning they dust on is awesome and some times all you really want is a box of cheap drumsticks.

This is a to-go spot. If you want to eat the chicken right away, you'll have to find a spot outside or do what I did, walk to the next block and sit at the bus stop.

$1 - $1.75
