Year of the Takeout: Day 28
Hacked Chicken from China Place (3141 Broadway, 212-749-8888)
For $4.25, you can get a dish that sounds like something dreamed up by Patrick Bateman, so why wouldn't you?
The chicken, which dissolves into moist, salty shards with each bite, has a rich, birdy flavor (and perhaps even hints of cilantro, green onion, and lemongrass), though the dressings -- a peanut glaze and a sweet, chili-sauce-like dollop -- feel a bit quotidian.
Perhaps a surprise will be in store for Year of the Takeout's stomach tomorrow, when we return to our regularly scheduled programming of purportedly "low-end" carry-away joints.
