Fried chicken.

We’ve all had it.  We all love it.

Although as of late the craze is getting a little out of hand.  There’s even a how-to make chicken and waffles grilled cheese

There are so many mouth-watering food vendors this Sunday at the Grub Street Food Festival but I’m putting 2 of them to the test.

Who can make the BEST finger lickin’ fried chicken dish in 20 minutes?

Is it the West side’s NYU stoner staple Sticky’s Finger Joint or the the well-beloved Lower East Side’s Jamaican Spur Tree?

Guest judges Chef Ilan Hall of The Gorbals and Esquire TV’s Knife Fight, Celebrity DJ’s and East Village Radio hosts Andrew Andrew, and Owner John Seymour of Sweet Chick will be there to decide.

Come watch and see who will lay the smack down (even if you are just there waiting for Dominque Ansel and his “Cocoa chowder”)!

Start time is 1pm and judging is at 1:20 so don’t miss it.

Location is inside the Grub Street Food Festival at Hester and Essex Streets, Lower East Side (at the respective Spur Tree/Sticky’s Finger Joint tents).
