Just last week, Momofuku head honcho David Chang opened Fuku+, a second location of his beloved NYC fried chicken-sandwich concept, Fuku.
In this week’s Fuku news, Chang is collaborating with Mission Chinese cocinero Danny Bowien to create two unique takes on Fuku Fingers, the chain’s version of chicken tenders made with all white meat.
The Fuku Finger Crunchy Wrap ($13)—which looks very similar to a Taco Bell Crunch Wrap—features Fuku fingers, Russ & Daughters salmon skin chicharrones, jalapeño pickles, shredded lettuce, tomatoes and buttermilk dressing. It’s served with smoked habanero honey, and exclusively available as of today at Mission Cantina in the Lower East Side.
Trying to avoid the Lower East Side? Fuku+, which lives inside Midtown restaurant Má Pêche, will offer Mission Chinese Fuku Fingers ($16) tossed with Mission Chinese Food’s Chongqing spice blend, chili oil, and sliced scallions, then topped with fried chilies.
Both items are available as of today for both lunch and dinner, and $1 from the purchase of either menu item will be donated to Edible Schoolyard NYC, a food and health education nonprofit.
But the wrap and Mission Chinese fingers will only be available for a limited time, so you’d better get your butt to Fuku+ and Mission Cantina right quick.
