Crispy fried chicken multiplies in SP restaurants; know 5 places


Fried chicken is different. If it already appeared in most of the pubs and bars and snacks type houses in the capital of São Paulo, now the recipe gains international flavors and presence in cool restaurants in São Paulo.

Traditional dishes such as breaded breaded or a birdie are increasingly sharing space with American, Korean and Japanese-inspired dishes. In common, they go through a process that makes them crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The difference is in the techniques and seasonings used.

Icon of American gastronomy, crispy fried chicken has replaced processed nuggets in the menus of hamburgers in the capital of São Paulo, as is the case of Borger Burger, with units in Vila Buarque and Itaim Bibi, in addition to starring sandwiches.

There is even an address entirely dedicated to American-style fried chicken, Nash, a novelty in Vila Mariana. There, the recipes gain accompaniments such as coleslaw, which is a coleslaw, or pickles. They can also be served in waffles, in addition to gaining different levels of spiciness – which has been softened, to please the São Paulo palate.

The recipe is also a common snack in izakayas, the Japanese bars, addresses that in recent years have established their place in the gastronomy of São Paulo. There, they are called karaage, and are served in portions accompanied by items such as Sicilian lemon, kewpie mayonnaise or green pepper, as chef Thiago Bañares, who runs Kotori, in Pinheiros, explains.

Among Koreans, it gains different levels of spiciness depending on the preparation. Places like Chicking, which works via delivery in Bom Retiro, deliver portions with different sauces and fries.

Despite having an Italian-based cuisine, Mila, a restaurant at Itaim Bibi, included an Asian-inspired fried chicken on the menu. In the recipe, pieces of thigh and drumstick go through various stages of a Korean-influenced marinade, are breaded and deep-fried at two different temperatures and are smeared in a bittersweet vinaigrette.

Pedro Pineda, the chef of the house, says that he decided to put the dish on the menu because it is a delicious and democratic starter, which everyone likes. “With good frying, there’s no mistake.”

New to Vila Mariana, the restaurant took inspiration from the American city of Nashville, Tennessee, to create a menu based on spicy fried chicken, with an indication of pepper levels. The highlights are the sandwiches. The one named after the house, for example, also has coleslaw and pickles (R$30). Tico Chicken no Fubá uses waffles instead of bread (R$29). There are also snacks, such as Chicken Caipira, chicken popcorn with fried okra and cheddar sauce (R$30).
