Golden Tiger is a food truck parked right outside of Whislers, specializing in fried chicken sandwiches and burgers. The fried chicken sandwiches come in three styles: original, Thai, or Buffalo. All of them feature a deep-fried chicken thigh, which already gives them “juicy points,” but the sauces set them apart. The original has gochujang mayo, the Thai has sweet chili sauce, and the Buffalo has (you guessed it) Buffalo sauce. You can also get fries covered in green chili cheese sauce here, which sounds like a pretty clear home-run.
