If you’re the type of person who sprinkles salt on their food, pauses, then sprinkles more for good measure, you’ll be a fan of Fuku. Everything at this David Chang mini-chain is aggressively seasoned. Try the dark-meat O.G. fried chicken sandwich that comes drenched in gochujang mayo, and don’t skip the waffle fries dusted with sweet jalapeño seasoning. We like dunking them in spicy cheese sauce, which is basically what you get at a baseball game when you order nachos. Breakfast sandwiches (made with a kimchi and anchovy sauce) are served all day, and the best non-sandwich things are the garlicky wings with a gochujang dry rub. Fuku is a fast food spot, and there are only three stools at this Rockefeller Center outpost, so don’t plan any team lunches here.
