even though all (wo)men are created equal, sadly nuggets are not.
after a childhood rife with undefinable meat circles that people insisted on calling ‘nuggets’, i vowed to focus my attention solely on chicken strips. then mcnugget-gate broke and it solidified that i’d never go back to a life of consuming chicken sponges. however, i’m easily peer pressured and usually down to try anything twice, so i decided to give the nugget spot (230 e 14th street) a chance.
when i first walked in, “spit your game” from that biggie remixes album was bumping and i was greeted with a huge smile so i was already sold. i’m no wuss and i have no respect for my arteries, so after pondering over the menu a million times, i went for the wake’n’bacon nuggets. these jawns (it’s real chicken chunks y’all) are wrapped in bacon, deep fried, and served with syrup.
yes, i cried on the first bite.
in between eats, i rapped along to kanye’s iconic “two words” now shooting through the speakers. freeway’s verse made me weep even harder. i also tried out the plain nuggets + the fries to cover the bases and they all got the thumbs up.
so lets tally it all up:
- great food
- classic hip-hop on loop
- respectable price point
- exceptional customer service
i think it’s safe to say that the nugget spot deserves all your coins, even if it means incurring a potbelly. it doesn’t really matter though because you just bought that new year’s resolution gym membership, remember?
