Hey, what’s going on everybody? Today, I’m at a new food court in New York There’s two big food courts in New York. Well, Flushing New York. One of them is at the New World Mall. The other one I think it’s called New York Food Court. It’s kind of down the Street on the Roosevelt. I have the addresses in my description box below, but I really like this one dish, and I think I’m actually really addicted to it. Here it is. This is a dish. I’m extremely addicted to. I’ve been eating this for about a month now. Every week I have to come to this place and grab this dish This is called Tiě bǎn jī jià (鐵板雞架 ). So the translation is like “iron board chicken bones.” This is a Shěnyáng (瀋陽) specialty. Shenyang is a city in Liáoníng (遼寧) which is on Northeast China, so of course when we talk about Northeast Chinese Foods, we would talk a lot about meat, a lot about heavy seasoning, a lot of spice And that’s what this dish is, and that’s why I love it. These are basically chicken bones with a little bit of meat on them. This is not a full chicken. This is like the bones of the chicken with just a little bits of meat attached, but by doing that, you get most of the flavor into the meat, and also the flavor sinks a lot into the bones as well now. They usually cook this is they put two wire frames together, so they put the chicken in the middle between the wire frames and they roast it with all sorts of spices. I mean take a look at this! This has a lot of chili, a lot of cumin. It has ginger, some peppercorn. Oh my God! This smells absolutely intoxicating, and this is really messy to eat, so that’s why… they gave me some gloves. Yeah? All right, let me prep for dining surgery here. There you go. [SHORT PAUSE] There you go. When I was young, my parents wanted me to be a doctor. I cannot stand the sight of blood, but um… I’m all on board with this kind of dissection. All right, here we go. So there’s a lot of pieces of chicken ribs. There’s chicken neck. If you never had chicken neck, it’s not a lot of meat, but all the meats are really, really flavorful because the meats are so close to the balls all right. Here’s a nice piece, so now we’re gonna surgically break this down. By surgically breaking it down I just mean tear it apart. There we go. This is so good. I love foods I can eat with my hands. I just want to suck on this piece of bone right here. It has so much seasoning just on this piece of bone Again, it’s covered in seasoning. You see how that’s not so thick. This chicken is so tasty, spicy Look at that.
The thing is you can’t be shy about making a mess eating this dish. You see that. Even that little piece has so much meat on there, and that’s the best parts of the meat, the kind of crispy part of the chicken. See now. That’s what I call surgical precision right here I’ll show you guys the chicken neck. This is the neck of the chicken. There’s so many little bones inside. Let me this open for you. I see that And there’s not that much meat on here. So you’re gonna have to gnaw on the bones, But the meat here. I think it’s one of the most flavorful parts of the chicken. You know if you eat more chicken neck, it actually makes your neck grow longer. Alright, this is not true. The only thing it does is to make your stomach happier. See like a piece right here You don’t see a lot of meat on them, but that meat is supreme meat. That’s like dry aged, grade A meat. That’s like the Wagyu Kobe Beef equivalent of chicken right here. So if you like fried chicken, grilled chicken or any sort of chicken, definitely check this out. And I always get this with extra spicy. So try ordering that. Also I just want to say these are so much healthier than your regular fried deep fried chicken So if you want to get a bunch of chicken without being completely unhealthy, then this is a good way to go. I’ll tell you guys something though. I am kind of afraid sometimes eating this because all the chicken is mixed up in this plate And I’m really afraid of eating a chicken butt. That’s a legit concern. Restaurants often serve chicken butts. Some people even asked specifically for chicken butts, but you know what I have no interest in eating a chicken butt. I mean the chickens run around. They don’t wipe. It’s just gross. Also, I purchased some chicken skin chips. Check this out. Let’s see how this tastes You know how awesome chicken skin is. I mean nobody orders fried chicken and not like have the skin. The skin is awesome It’s full of flavor, and also the skin right away melts in your mouth So you get this burst of oil flavor, and that’s not a bad thing. Sometimes we say oily, and that’s bad. This is oily in a good way. You know what these taste like. They taste like pork rinds. But these are better because these like I said they give you a burst of flavor and oil, and pork rinds is kind of dry you Know what they should do? They should offer these at movie theaters. I mean forget the popcorn. Eat some chicken skin. All right guys, thanks for watching! I gonna go suck on my gloves after I finish this chicken dish. See you later!
