Today while in the area I decided to try the new Vietnamese cuisine restaurant mentioned here on CH recently but to my dismay it is still not open for business and looked dark and closed in Stella Plaza on Rt166 Toms River...........Hungry for lunch I looked next door at the new
Fried Chicken House restaurant........went in not knowing what to expect. I was greeted warmly buy the owners and to my surprise were family members of the owners of El Familiar Colombian restaurant on the other side of the plaza which I love and have dined there many times. I have to say that if your looking for Fried Chicken look no further. I ordered the 4 piece dinner with Spanish rice & grandules and Colombian style pinto beans.....for my appetizer the Chicken Cornmeal Empanadas are the same as El Familiar crispy & Delicious.
But the real star here is the FRIED CHICKEN....a light coated almost panko-ish coating light & crispy perfectly cooked to order had me licking my fingers Wow! And the prices are very affordable.
The menu reflects some other interesting favorites with a Colombian twist like the Chorizo con Arepa, Paisa Hot Dog, Cuban Sandwich, Pincho de cerdo kabob,Shrimp Burrito, Mexican Cheese Steak,
Garlic shrimp....etc,...I will be back......check them out YUMMY!!
