Eat and Drink Uncle Sam's in NYC debuts fried chicken sandwich topped with Sriracha potato chips, poached egg By Georgia Kral Updated March 16, 2016 3:13 PM Print Share Share Tweet Share Email The fried chicken sandwich is the thing these days. You've likely had a dozen ChickenShack's and Fuku's by now, right? Even if you haven't, you need this new creation by Uncle Sam's. This burger, bowl and sandwich shop located right next door to Koreatown is a Chinese import, and it's quickly expanding in the city. The first location opened in May 2015, and a second location in Chelsea is set to open this May. Uncle Sam's has been expanding its menu quietly. A weekly pot sticker offering just launched (this week they're making corned beef and cabbage), and the new item we got a first look at is sure to be the next big thing in NYC. The Which Came First? chicken 'samwich' is quite a thing. Take a look. Take a close look...

Very important: crispy chicken Photo Credit: Georgia Kral Panko is a Japanese-style bread crumb that's very flaky and light. It gives fried foods extra crunch and added deliciousness. In the case of this fried chicken sandwich, you get TWO pieces of chicken with panko, so expect lots of crunch. Those potato chips are spicy Photo Credit: Georgia Kral That's thanks to the Sriracha flavoring. Who doesn't want an extra kick?

It can be yours for $9.95 Photo Credit: Georgia Kral The ultimate question is: Why settle for one piece of chicken when you can have two?
