Year of the Takeout Day 159: Charlie Mom

Year of the Takeout Day 159: Charlie Mom

New Tze Chicken from Charlie Mom (464 6th Avenue, 212-807-8585)

Almost identical to Fortune Cookies' ta-chien chicken in taste, the texture of this mildly spicy $12.50 dish differs from similar picks.

Though the exterior coat's flavor is that of any General Tso's, the breading here comes out more fluffy than crunchy, suggesting the moist meat has been daintily dusted before being dipped in the fry oil.
