Hot Chick Fried Chicken hits the mark

Down in the historic Shockoe slip of Richmond VA, Hot Chick Fried Chicken hits the two most important factors in great fried chicken: crunchy exterior and juicy meat. Bam. That’s it. That’s what it takes. And the crazy part is that when I took my first bite of Hot Chick and experienced that crunchy exterior and juicy interior, it happened not in the dining room, but after it had been bagged up and brought back to an AirBnB some 10 minutes away. That is an exceptional feat.

Charlottesville in Requiem

Cheap Eats, The South By July 22, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

Ahh, Charlottesville. Or “Cville” if you are a local. Or just loco for the UVA Cavaliers. This quaint East Coast college town might seem timeless thanks to the Jeffersonian architecture of the University of Virginia’s campus but the food scene is very much in the 21st century. This episode of Cheap Eats starts off with familiar enough territory at Bodo’s Bagels. And let’s face it, what college kid didn’t survive off the occasional bagel? But Cheap Eats also found familiar comfort food turned sideways like Korean Hot Wings, a BBQ Sundae and Chicken Fried Octopus. Now before I get in trouble with the italics police for overuse and abuse, let’s take a big bite into Cheap Eats Cville . . . oops. I didn’t mean that italics police officer. Can you maybe just let me off with a warning? Please?
