Golden Krust Expansion?: Despite closing two NYC locations last year, Golden Krust (the Carribean chain that still has a Midtown location on 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th, and a kiosk in Grand Central) is looking to expand according to Fork in the Road.  Speaking of which, lunch'er Paulie checks in to say that GK chicken patties are 99 cents for all of January. Nice.

3rd Ave. Loses Golden Krust and Wendy’s

A few emails yesterday tipped me off to the closing of the two story Wendy’s on Third Ave. btw. 57+58th.  Not that sad… and in fact it could end up being great news, depending on what ends up moving in there.  Double decker Panda Express anybody!?! (I know, I’m a broken record and I apologize.)

Far sadder was the sight 13 blocks farther south, on 3rd Ave. btw. 43+44th.

A Look at Golden Krust’s Mini-Meals

Bionic Bites has a really great post about all the mini meal options at Golden Krust, the Carribean chain with multiple midtown locations. “All the options come with cooked cabbage, a slice of fried plantain, and a choice of rice or rice and peas. Prices are dependent on what you order, but everything hovers around $6.” Her favorite is the jerk chicken wings, but she also reports that the cow’s foot special and the curry chicken are good as well.

8th Avenue is the Fried Chicken Corridor of NYC

I have never met a piece of fried chicken I didn’t like. Sure, there have been some transcendent fried chicken moments. My first visit to Roscoe’s Fried Chicken and Waffles in L.A. comes to mind (although you may say the waffle had a little something to do with that.) And of course there was Dunbar’s in New Orleans, which is still the best fried chicken I’ve ever eaten. Hopefully the rumors of its return are not exaggerated. But I don’t mind slumming it either, and it doesn’t take much to please me. Hot Oil + Chicken (+ Salt & Pepper) = Good.

There is some damn good fried chicken in Midtown. I’ve mentioned Cafe Cello as one of my favorites (on 46th btw. 5+6th) and even KFC has gotten the obligatory mention on the site. But if you want to be at ground zero for NYC fried chicken there is only one place to go. Eighth Avenue. The stretch of that road between the Mid 30′s and Mid 40′s is jammed packed with fried chicken goodness. Here is your guide to navigating the corridor. (A Fried-Chicken-Palooza if you will)

Golden Krust Celebrates Jamaican Independence With 99 Cent Patties

DSC09838

Tomorrow is Jamaica’s Independence Day, and Golden Krust  is celebrating by selling their jerk chicken patties for 99 cents the entire month of August. With the Jamaican Dutchy (on 51st & 7th) readily available, I’ve never given GK their full +/-, but with 4 locations in Midtown- maybe it’s time. Thoughts?

4 Locations in Midtown:

  • 33rd btw. Mad+5th
  • 8th Ave. btw. 39+40th
  • 3rd Ave. btw. 43+44th
  • Grand Central Terminal Food Court (although this is just a kiosk, so I’m not positive if they are participating in the August promotion)
