I have been scouring the web and various informers about finding good fried chicken in Brooklyn...and the results have been DISMAL! I consider the borough to be one of the food capitals of the world and I just don't believe it's true.

I am not talking about anything fancy, just good fresh fried chicken with decent flavor, preferably take out. Could be from a deli, or maybe an upscale food shop. (how about West Indian places in Flatbush???) I would even settle for a Popeye's once in a while but they are few and far between. Pudgies used to serve our needs OK, but they are going Chapter 11. Meisner's Kosher take-out on Avenue I in Midwood can be OK, but often too much breading. The phrase "fried chicken in Brooklyn" gets only 13 hits on google. Something is wrong here.

Pls help.
