Many of the fried chicken sandwiches at Spicy Boys are similar to the ones offered at their sister restaurant, Soursop, which is to say - they’re excellent. We especially like the O.G. here, which is a mild-spiced slab of chicken dressed with papaya relish, Thai basil ranch, chili-honey sauce, scallions, and crispy shallots. But if the weather isn’t already making you sweat, you can add a little more heat with the Hot Gai (also available at Soursop). They also do a very good job with boneless and bone-in wings, with a variety of Asian-inspired flavors. Make sure to grab an order of roti and panang curry while you’re there, and strongly consider adding on a side of tater tots to dip in the curry.
