After a small batch tour and several beers at the Brooklyn Brewery, I went over to Fette Sau for a super indulgent, but downright delicious dinner.
Fette Sau is one of those BBQ joints where you order your food by the pound. Fueled by lots of Brooklyn beer, I chose well for my party of four. We got pork belly, sausage, beef brisket, boneless ribs, a side of German potato salad, and a side of burnt end baked beans.
This dinner was fantastic. Everything was delicious but the standouts were definitely the pork belly and the baked beans. The pork belly was tender, juicy, and served in slices about a 1/4″ thick! The burnt end baked beans were easily the best baked beans I’ve ever had. It’s honestly just one of those things that you’re just going to have to try to believe me.
You can also order beer in large quantities too. We had one gallon (yup, a gallon) of Sixpoint Vienna Pale to wash everything down.
I did absolutely nothing after dinner because the deep, deep food coma I was in but oh, was it worth it though. Definitely looking forward to coming back!

I’ve heard and read so much about Korean fried chicken. All signs pointed to NYC when trying to find a place to try some. As often as I go to NYC, I unfortunately always forgot all about it when I came up. Finally, earlier last week, I met a friend for lunch at one of the places, Kyochon.
Kyochon is a Korean chain, which has a couple restaurants here in the US now. They’re known for their fried chicken, which is nothing as we Americans know fried chicken as. Korean fried chicken is twice fried, not coated with a batter like southern fried.
The restaurant was pretty neat looking. The employees looked like flight stewardesses with their outfits and the decor/atmosphere felt like very loungy….even the bathroom was wild looking.
I ordered a combo of soy garlic wings with potato wedges. Soon after sitting, the district manager of Kyochon happened to notice me taking photos of my food, and gave me a sampling of the hot & sweet wings to try…very awesome!
I liked both varieties, though I felt the hot & sweet wings were a little too spicy to enjoy. Each bite was flavorful without an overload of sauce flying all over the place. These were actually sauceless yet tasty.
If you’ve never had Korean fried chicken before, go out and try some. I enjoyed my meal despite the feeling that I broke my no fast food diet by going to a Korean equivalent of KFC. But no, this is not. This is definitely better than KFC!
As I left Kyochon, I noticed that a BonChon, another competitor in the Korean fried chicken war, was opening soon just down the street!
