I love fried chicken, a dish I never had in France if it was not at...KFC in Paris! Yes, fried chicken is not something that you would find in classic French cooking, and I think it is too bad as I love it! So, I was really looking forward to try Delaney Chicken at Urbanspace Vanderbilt. Their menu is simple: chicken, chicken and chicken, offering three types of sandwiches.
I tried of course their original chicken sandwich made with house pickles, mayo and hot sauce. They chicken was perfectly cooked, moist and delightfully crispy, with the mayo counterbalancing the hot sauce. If you like spicy, I suggest you go for the spicier version of this sandwich that has pickled jalapeño.
Their chicken club is also good, made with bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo. No surprise as far as the chicken is concerned as it is the same type, fried in a batch and randomly picked.
Overall it was good sandwiches, but I was still a bit hungry after just one. I wish they made them a bit bigger. Delaney Chicken is good, but for me, the best fried chicken sandwich remains Oppa: it is outstanding!
Enjoy (I did)!
