New York Fried Chicken
(Various Locations, but the one on Charles and North to be precise)
"Hey man you wanna buy a laptop for 50 bucks?"*
That was my first experience in New York Fried Chicken; a local franchise that peppers various Baltimore Neighborhoods and parts of DC. Its your basic chicken/sub shop: fried chicken, lake trout, cheesesteaks, burgers, candy, soda, little debbie snack cakes, etc...)
Located at the prime location of north and charles (across the street from club choices, down the street from the depot and the charles theatre, and other spots) The place is at its busiest on friday and saturday nights after last call. Walking in, you will be waiting for your 3 piece box w/ cheese fries along while someone will ask "Hey man, you drunk?"
"Aw man, you're cool."
But the food: the fried chicken, especially at night due to the high turnover, is perfectly fried. Of course they have ample supplies of hot sauce (and old bay) for you to douse the chicken with. Their fries are standard frozen shoe strings that tastes like they were fried in chicken fat (which they probably are). Their cheesesteaks are enormous and therefore, the perfect drunk food.
Other stuff of note: they carry an assortment of side dishes. Their red beans and rice were mediocre, but at least their corn on the cob is better than the standard ones at KFC (across on st paul). They also carry little buckets of collard greens that is sinfully satisfying.
all in all, this place is the quintessential after-bar spot.
