Extract from Eating Queens: Around the World on the 7 Train.

Unidentified Flying Chickens is an appropriately playful name for this high-spirited fast-food shop specialising in Korean fried chicken (but also serving burgers and sandwiches). The chicken is offered in four styles: hot, sweet and spicy, BBQ mustard, and soy garlic; the skin is light and crispy, the meat tender. A side of Korean radish is a refreshing, tangy complement. After 6pm, mosey downstairs to their beer bar where you’ll find 12 intriguing craft brews on tap and local university students that slipped in with a New York fake id to chat with. Sip and crunch while you enjoy the exuberant cartoons of interplanetary poultry decorating the walls.
