Crisp

Is there a better fried chicken in Chicago? Probably not. Although there are certainly different styles (I love the Carolina-style at Roost, as well as the vaguely Asian-flecked version at Smalls). But Crisp has always been my go-to. It’s twice-fried, then tossed with a choice of either a gojujang-laced barbecue sauce or a sesame-soy-garlic Korean “Seoul Sassy” sauce. You could even just get it Plain Jane. But the shattering skin and the juicy meat are hard to beat in Chicago. This is chicken that will be good tomorrow, but even better right now.
