Momofuku Noodle Bar Fried Chicken

Momofuku Noodle Bar has not one, but two recipes for fried chicken, which are served in tandem. One has spicy korean flavoring, while the other boasts traditional southern flavor and is made with Old Bay seasoning. Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York is owned by David Chang, and the fried chicken at this restaurant is somewhat of a complicated affair. The dish is only made to serve groups of four to eight people, and advance reservations are required.
