The snacky Japanese food at the Bessou counter at Market 57 is a little hit or miss, but their hot honey karaage is an unquestionable hit. In fact, it’s one of the best bites in the entire market. Giant chunks of boneless chicken are tossed in a tangy, spicy sauce and topped with mayo, togarashi, and big slices of pickled jalapeño for an intense flavor experience. Just don’t let yourself be sidetracked by things like beignets or crispy rice bites, which are forgettable.
