Garlic Fried Chicken @ Jook N Fun, SF

Melanie Wong | Jul 12, 200607:38 AM     20

On Monday my mom suggested won tons for lunch at Jook N Fun on Irving Street. The specials listed on one of the wall boards have been translated into English. The four season beans I liked so much last time are listed as dry sauteed string beans or something like that. Next on the list is garlic chicken. This is a whole chicken, albeit a small bird, cooked to order. You're warned that it takes 20 minutes. It's worth it though for the plate of hacked up, scalding hot, garlicky, tender bites with that gloriously crisp skin. A bit of maltose makes a nice crust and adds a touch of sweetness that catches the deep-fried garlic bits. Mom complained that the chicken was chopped rather unartfully with too many bone splinters. But the three of us ate nearly all of it except for few pieces of white meat after we gobbled up the skin, in addition to our two bowls of noodle soups. Priced less than $8 per order --- highly recommended.
