We stopped by HFB on Thursday to try the fried chicken after hearing the buzz about it and we were so happy we did.  Wow!.. and I’m not kidding.

The chicken was D-licious.  Moist, tasty and crispy but not greasy.  It was accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and green beans that snap when you bite into them.  Luckily, we managed to score one of the last servings.  I had it with my favorite happy hour drink there, the Watermelon Martini which I like on the rocks.

All I could say during my meal to my husband was, ” I’m in heaven”. So see you there next Thursday as I can’t wait to go back for more! =)

on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.”

My husband, daughter and I stopped by recently when we were looking for a place to eat. We saw Koko Wings on 106th off Broadway and looked at the menu. We gave it a shot and enjoyed it.

Koko Wings is about 1 month old and they have

boneless

great Korean wings. They are delicious and come in Hot and Spicy, Garlic  flavored or a combination. I had the hot and spicy wings, my husband had the boneless. I ordered the sweet potato fries and they were served with a honey mustard dip which I enjoyed. It comes with a side so I had the cole slaw which was delicious too.

We can’t wait to got back or order in!
