Find Fried Chicken With An Indian Kick At The FiDi’s Bombay’s

In addition to steam table lunches, Bombay’s on Pearl St. (btw. Coenties Slip & Broad) offers a few other items that aren’t commonly seen at competing spots like Diwan E Khaas.

They sells good kati rolls, and also a couple of Indian snacks. And then there’s the Indian fried chicken on the menu. I’d been curious about it, and decided to bite the bullet and see how this fried chicken was anything like Korean fried chicken or just the regular sort.

It turns out it’s a mash up, and one you might want to try if you’re into fried poultry in all its forms. 

You get five decently-sized pieces of chicken and a handful of fries in the $8 order. It’s not until you bite into the chicken that you realize where the “Indian” part comes into the order.

There’s curry powder among other seasonings in the batter that’s not ultra-crisp, but it doesn’t matter too much since the chicken is juicy. The fries were only OK, and make sure you have a salt packet or two to put on because they’re unsalted.

If you’re in need of some fried chicken with a twist, the version at Bombay’s was tasty and a fairly good deal for the amount of bird you get.
