Very happy to finally make it to The Dutch for their Monday Night Fried Chicken Dinner. Since I was in the company of fellow whiskey drinkers, we each had a custom bourbon flight (I especially liked my Four Roses Single Barrel). We were starving, so each of us ordered our own chicken dinner, which included a Bibb salad, four pieces of chicken, and a slice of Kierin’s homemade pie. Normal humans would have stopped right there, but no, not us. We proceeded to order the 40 oz. Beef Rib-eye (dry-aged for 28 days) on the side. Needless to say, it was a ridiculous amount of food. We ate and ate and ate… until it hurt so much that we could barely breathe. (Not really the wisest of decisions, eh?) I am a huge fan of The Dutch and I’ve had the fried chicken before at brunch — it was great. But tonight, I must say that it was OUT OF THIS WORLD AMAZING. Hands down, some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever eaten — and the best biscuits. (I’m drooling just thinking about those warm honey biscuits.) Thanks, Chef Jason Hua, for an unforgettable meal!
