Taiwanese Fried Chicken Joint, ‘Chicken V,’ Joins the Fray on Hester Street
The dead zone of a block on the south side of Hester Street, between Chrystie and the Bowery, now boasts a new fast-food joint. Taiwanese fried chicken outpost, OFC Chicken V, announced itself to the neighborhood last month. It’s taken over the store previously occupied by the Kang Kee Chinese restaurant.
Aside from the namesake bird offering, Chicken V does offer some vegetarian options, such as appetizers like oyster mushrooms, gluten, bean curd, salty cabbage, cauliflower, layered tofu, and eggplant.
Chicken V at 124 Hester Street is the second location in the Five Boroughs, behind a spot in Bensonhurst. There is also a franchise in Tennessee.
