Frying is an art, a chemical lore that one should master if they ought to do the fried chicken.
The extremely crunchy buttermilk coated, hot, juicy, delicious fried chicken is what you get when you find Dirty Bird To Go, mini place in Manhattan. Not enough said, when you eat it, the taste of the coating is your first acquaintance, the crunchy, non-oil absorbed- piping hot texture is heavenly. Then you get the taste of the chicken, the taste that we forgot long time ago. The comforting taste, the all natural, organic, humanely raised chicken taste, that’s what I am talking about. The moist, juicy, perfectly cooked pieces of chicken.
The side dishes are good as the chicken, the garlic kale, the roasted potatoes, the beets, and the refreshing coleslaw. Although I have to say, the cornbread is a bit too much buttery for my taste, so that is the only thing I did not enjoy.
The lemonade is homemade-old school-tart lemonade, just as I like it! It is a real refreshment between the meal.
When you leave, you feel full, but not greasy, your hand do not smell of the oil, just they do not smell at all!
You feel light, you wonder where all the oil has gone, then you realize may be you did not eat any, may be the chicken just danced in the oil.
Somebody knows how to fry there, how to respect the food, how to be perfect!
