So I was looking for a new fried chicken place to try and ended up at Sticky's Finger Joint, a restaurant in Hell's Kitchen, located close to The Port Authority Bus Terminal. I knew about this place since its inception as I saw them on the Food Network back in 2012, on a TV show with Bobby Flay, where the owners had three days to open and had to go through the hoops of opening a restaurant, a task not that simple. This is not they first location and I believe they settled on 9th Avenue a year or two ago. I like the decor that is very colorful, with the wall painted like street art.
I ordered at the counter and admit that, at the beginning, I was not sure what to order between the chicken strips or a chicken sandwich and went for the former as well as an interesting dessert...The food was ready in a matter of minutes and I sat at one of the tables to taste it.
The three chicken strips I ordered were just made, so really hot. But so good! Crispy on the outside, the chicken was perfectly cooked and moist. I loved it with the buffalo sauce, one of the many sauces they propose.
Then was one of the most surprising desserts I ever had: S'more French fries. Yes, you read well: French fries and Smore's in one single dish, like having your entire meal in one dish! So, first they put the fries, then the graham crackers, the marshmallows, and finish the whole thing with lots of chocolate and some marshmallow fluff. It was good, especially as I love sweet and savory mixes, but I admit that it was a bit too sweet.
I had a great meal at Sticky's Finger Joint: the food was good and quite surprising. I would definitely go back and try some other of their creations.
Enjoy (I did)!
