At 11:18 am this morning, I was hit with an intense craving for crispy fried chicken on a biscuit with pickles and some kind of cheese or sauce.
I displayed a little bit of discipline. By that I mean I didn’t immediately run out of the house to grab the nearest chicken and fry it. That would have been silly–I wasn’t even wearing pants yet.
By 11:20, the decision was made: I was going to satiate my craving. So I texted a friend to join me, and I turned to my FLFB (friendly local food blog), Whiskey & Soba, for a recommendation.
At 12:15, we found ourselves at Byrd & Barrel, a hipsterific fried chicken restaurant on Jefferson. They didn’t actually have fried chicken on a biscuit, but they had a po’ boy sandwich, and they had a biscuit, so I ordered both, among other things:
Everything was really good. The highlight for me were the chicken nugs (adult chicken nuggets). The spice on the chicken was really good, and the peppadew aoili was awesome. It definitely hit the spot and satisfied my craving.
If you ever do this, what was the last time you addressed a craving right away?
