David Chang — the chef behind such culinary destinations as Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssäm Bar, and Ko — is partnering with Aramark at Eagles game to sell his hot chicken.
That’s spicy hot as well as business hot.
It’s a project involving Chang’s chicken eatery Fuku, which opened three years ago in Manhattan’s East Village to represent the chef’s entry to the fast-casual game. The menu at Lincoln Financial Field will debut at Thursday’s preseason game on the Club Level, before opening behind Section 114 for the second preseason game.
On the menu are Fuku’s spicy fried chicken sandwich (habanero-brined thigh served on a Martin’s potato roll and garnished with pickles and butter, $16, with fries; Fuku fingers and fries (crispy chicken breast paired with sweet jalapeño-seasoned fries, with honey mustard or ranch on the side, $14); and fries tossed in sweet jalapeño seasoning ($6). The price of the sandwich by itself was not available Thursday afternoon
Besides the East Village location, Fuku has concessions within Madison Square Garden and Citi Field in New York, Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, and Washington’s Capital One Arena. Fuku also plans new storefronts in New York City’s NoMad neighborhood and Boston’s Seaport.
