Cheeto fried chicken available all week starting tomorrow.
Xiao Ye chef-owner Eddie Huang thought it was "really fair" when Gael Greene slammed his restaurant's fried chicken in her review this week (she called it "like wood shavings on chunks of white meat"). Starting today, Huang replaces the shavings with something more cheetah-licious. "Chicken is fixed!'
Huang's Cheeto chicken is part of a larger plan to feature "ABC Diner food through autumn. A play on twisted-comfort-food list that also includes a grilled-cheese sandwich with mozzarella and gochujang, a fried-tofu-and-honey-ham-hock toasted mantou sandwich, and Sloppy Joes. The chopped broccoli and Cheddar sticks to theme, too — reminiscent, also shamelessly Cheetos-coated.
