Almost immediately, Fuku was praised for its outstanding spicy chicken sandwich. The sandwich is a play on the simple chicken sandwiches that can be eaten at fast-food establishments across the country, but with some twists that make it unique. The sandwich contains a chicken thigh that’s marinated in habanero, covered in buttermilk and a blend of spices, and then deep-fried to near-perfection before being served on a standard potato roll with pickles and butter. The end result is a juicy, crispy, delicious chicken sandwich experience that immediately jumped into the ‘must-try’ category for New Yorkers.
