Buttermilk fried chicken and waffles – Starbelly

Buttermilk fried chicken and waffles - Starbelly
Maple syrup. $15
Starbelly, San Francisco CA

This was really good! I’ve been disappointed by some of the fried chicken I’ve had at Starbelly in the past, but this version was really juicy and flavorful. The waffles were also pretty tasty and everything tasted great with the maple syrup. Mmm…

Fried chicken – Ovok

Fried chicken - Ovok
Mashed potatoes with mushroom bacon pan sauce, steamed broccoli, extra side of gravy. $13.95
Ovok, San Francisco CA

This was kinda gross. Everything was just so heavy and greasy. I mean, look at the side of gravy! There’s a thick layer of fat just floating on top. The mashed potatoes were really dense clunky and even the broccoli was greasy. The fried chicken tasted good, but it was also pretty greasy. Yuck. You certainly get a lot of food though! Too bad you really don’t want to eat most of it.

Garlic chicken – Bbobbo Chicken & Beer

Garlic chicken - Bbobbo Chicken & Beer
Bbobbo Chicken & Beer, Seoul SOUTH KOREA

This was different. The chicken was good, but the garlic paste that it was brushed with had an interesting texture. The chicken was also crudely chopped so most pieces were primarily bone. That really didn’t stop me though since I’m not afraid to get down and dirty and eat with my hands. Perhaps I should have order chicken wings though, lol!

WhipOut slider & Fried chicken pups – WhipOut! Food Truck

WhipOut slider & Fried chicken pups - WhipOut! Food Truck
Beef burger with 4 oz ground chuck, truck-smoked cheddar, dill pickle, signature sauce, pickled red onion, romaine. $6.50
Bite-sized truck-smoked thigh pieces, buttermilk battered, bbq dipping sauce. $5.50
WhipOut! Food Truck, San Francisco CA

I liked the flavors of the slider but it was sitting in a pool of grease that completely soaked into the bottom bun, boo! I’m not sure if the grease was from the chicken pups or from the beef patty and cheese but it was gross! The top bun was also too thick for the small size of the slider. The fried chicken pups weren’t very good either. They were REALLY greasy and over-fried. They were really hard to chew and super salty! Overall, this was a failed lunch.

The fried tasted good. It was greasy, but it had a nice flavor. I was excited for the waffle, but it didn’t deliver. I liked the ingredients, but it came out sad and limp.

Fried chicken – Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken

Fried chicken - Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken
Breast and wing. 2 piece (white) $6
Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken, Washington DC

This chicken was pretty tasty. The large breast was a bit dry in parts, but I really liked the flavor of the coating and it was fried relatively well. It was a little greasy, but not overly so.
