Fried chicken fanatics, consider Queens. The year’s trendiest food has a thread (and a borough) devoted to it, from “salty and crispy chicken” at Main Street Imperial Taiwanese to Korean-style fried chicken at Kyedong. This passionate thread calls out BonChon, Mad for Chicken, Unidentified Flying Chickens, and even Popeye’s as Chowhounds battle out their favorite in the borough.
Many know Queens for its incredible Chinese, Indian, Thai, and Greek food, among other international standouts. Whether fried chicken tours will be the borough’s next big thing remains to be seen.
