Fried Chicken Is My God

In which I discuss how amazing fried chicken is and nobody can tell me otherwise.

Happy June!

It has been a while since I posted, but between arriving back from New York, getting back to work and starting my new internship, I have had absolutely no time for this blog. This makes me sad, but it is what it is.

I’m really excited to write about my New York adventures avec Mutay, and since I was there for two weeks I’ll have to break it down into parts.

New York was amazing. It’s surreal that I’ve actually been now, because NY has been on my travel list for the longest time. Now I can cross it off! The thing is I’ll have to go back because there’s still many places I want to visit and explore, and you’d think 2 weeks would be enough, but it’s definitely not. NY is MASSIVE.

I managed to get most of what I wanted to do on my list, which you can read here. I was seriously happy when Joy introduced us to $1 pizza! Food in America is amazing. I have never eaten so much fried chicken in my life. Seriously.

I spent the weekend in DC, and the first meal I had was fried chicken. When we met up with Joy, we went to a place called Pies ‘n’ Thighs in the Lower East Side and I had fried chicken. I had some of Mutay’s fried chicken when we visited Harlem. Honestly, though, no regrets. Fried chicken is my god.

There’s something about the crispiness of the skin and the tenderness of the meat that gets me going. I could probably write a book about how good fried chicken is. I’m going to wake up one day and the only words I’m going to be able to say are “Fried chicken”.

All of the food I had in NY was heavenly, from the chicken over rice at The Halal Guys on W. 53rd St to the fried shrimp I had at Amy Ruth’s; I’m surprised I’m not the size of house, right now. I have so many entries for the Food Diaries!

Of course, I also took in the sights and not just ate food. Everything is insanely massive in NY, so it was a little overwhelming. Skyscraper, much? I did get to witness some amazing views of the Manhattan skyline and the boat rides I took were so nice.

Anyway, I thought I’d give a quick update to let you know I’m here and I’m raring to get back into blogging. Watch out for my upcoming travel/food posts. Lots of exciting stuff to come 🙂

    Wow, so jealous that you got to go to New York. I can’t imagine how amazing that must have been.

    I felt like London was massive the first time I went. Been a few times now and still haven’t seen half of the stuff I want to, so seriously cannot imagine how massive New York must be.

    OMG food. That fried chicken looks so good!

    Glad you had fun!

    $1.00 pizzas?! Holy crap! That’s really cheap 😀 If I ever make it to the eastern USA, I’ll be sure to meet up with Joy so she can take me to good deals like that!

    I’m glad to see you had a blast on your trip! I admit, I kind of laughed when I read you really enjoying those fried chickens XD; Out of all the food in the US, fried chicken isn’t something I consider foodstuff worthy of gushing, but I guess you really, really like them! 😀

  • Holly

    I’m glad you had an awesome time in New York. And yes to the food!! It was amazing. I want to go back just to try more restaurants. I do love fried chicken. 😛

  • Nancy

    Welcome back from your trip to New York! Hopefully you’re not suffering from jet lag and I’m glad to hear you enjoyed the city! Next, you need to visit LA, puhhhhhleeeeasssseee? It’s awesome that you got to meet up with a fellow blogger! The cheapest good pizza I’ve had is a $2 pizza slice from Costco XD. Mmmmm fried chicken sounds good at this time (even though I got sick from eating KFC last time ;~;).

    Hope you’ll have time to blog again soon! 😀
