Unidentified Flying Chicken -- Original Jackson Heights location in Queens NY. https://www.ufchicken.com/about-us

Most of the negative reviews are based on deliveries but I always dine in there and order a set of craft beer samplers. I go once in a while -- maybe once every month or 2. I don't want to get sick of it and I don't want to get fat.

I'm assuming you prefer going a three star michelin restaurant and I don't blame you for your preference. Except i don't have the budget for a 3 star michelin restaurant on a whim and I would probably need to save a few months worth of salary for me to get in a 3 star michelin restaurant. Yes, that extreme.



That's horrible, onee-chan.

If you're talking Outback steakhouse...that's not exactly like 3 star michelin restaurant like "Cut" in Los Angeles. "Cut" is on average $300 per steak on the lower end and their wagyu beef is almost $1000. Idk if any common folk wants to drop that much money.

On Yagyu beef, rich bastards will shell out big time and I would, also. Medium rare, you dogs, and step on it!

Too rich for my blood. I can go to a Walmart and grab some rib eyes, marinade them, fry them in a cast iron skillet, and enjoy the hell out of myself.

That would be the most practical way to do it. At least it would be in portions you would want to eat.

That is a unique name for a restaurant "Unidentified flying chicken". Thanks for the tip. If i do decide to stop by NY, i would probably go to this just to check this out. Oh, I don't go to that fave restaurant of my mine all the time because you will get taste fatigue and i don't want happening to me either. I would like to change it up a bit.

The way Wally World cuts some of their steaks, just one can make you a fatty for a little while. ( ;__; )

If that's the case, i guess portion control when you make the steak will help out a bit.

Mm-hmm yes.

On another note, there was a small Chinese restaurant I had tried while out on a short vacation a while ago. You can find it in Island Park, Idaho. REALLY REALLY good.
