I had the pleasure of checking out Brooklyn Bowl the other night, and the even greater pleasure of trying their much-gabbed-about fried chicken from Blue Ribbon. Was it worth the trek to Billyburg? Well, in a word: yes.
Crispy, salty, crunchy, juicy, and only slightly greasy…I give you…Brooklyn Bowl's fried chicken.
As you can see, I got two crunchy wings and two big breasts. And I can still fit into normal clothes. Haha..I crack myself up. Seriously though, for $21, it'd better be a good portion. It also came with mashed potatoes and gravy, white bread, collard greens and bacon, and a side of honey for the chicken (if you haven't dunked fried chicken in honey, you clearly don't know what you're doing). The collard greens were delish too – biggg chunks of bacon and bacon grease all over…mmm. I'm salivating a little just thinking about it. My friend Monique was with me (we'll call her MoMo for short), and she got the Brooklyn Bowl Burger Deluxe, which could have been the Whopper's twin, separated at birth. It was good, don't get me wrong, but it tasted kind of like a Whopper..? The fries were scrumptious though – beats fast food any day. And they make something called "Rock n Roll Fries" which are fries covered in gravy, cheddar, provolone, and cajun spices. DROOL. In fact, there were tons of things on the menu that sounded amazing (like the Brooklyn Brisket and Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding), I will be back…you can count on THAT Brooklyn!!
