Manchu Food Store

New Orleans, LA
I heard through word of mouth that this was the best fried chicken in town. But I was a bit hesitant when I read some reviews that said to call in your order and get in and get out ASAP.
the parking in the area is tough because there are only 3 parking spots in front of the store. we took the advice to call in ahead when we read about the crack-like-addicton-inducing chicken and bulletproof glass windows. The store area is quite ghetto but the chicken is well worth it.
we did the 50 chicken wings for $20. the batter was very thin and packed full of flavor. it had its own spices and didn’t need any hot sauce (which speaks a lot for my personal preferences for chicken).
the chicken was DELICIOUS! definitely recommend this for your next party gathering!
