As the result of David Chang’s fast-food chicken sandwich obsession, Fuku only serves one main dish on its menu: chicken sandwiches. The only decisions you'll need to make when ordering is which type of chicken sandwich you want and if you'll get crispy waffle fries with it. We recommend the Knockout Sando Meal and its spicy equivalent, the Spicy Fried Chicken Sando Meal.
