Taiwanese Style Fried Chicken Sandwich
Chef Kyu aspires to create a chicken sandwich that embodies the vibrancy and richness of Asian culinary art, and one that is a source of pride for the Asian community that represents the best of Asia.
We prepare our Taiwanese fried chicken with a technique that truly captures the essence of Taiwanese cuisine. Our fresh hand-trimmed chicken thighs are marinated in a special mix of soy sauce, ginger, garlic, rice wine, and a variety of spices. After being marinated for at least 48 hours, the chicken is fried to a perfect golden crisp using our homemade batter, which is made using a unique blend of spices, flour, and sweet potato starch. This results in a thin and crispy coating that perfectly complements the juicy and flavorful chicken inside.
Best of both worlds
At 2D Restaurant, we use fresh hand-trimmed chicken thighs, which are marinated for 48 hours in our unique blend of 2D house-made five spice buttermilk. This special marinade combines the best of Taiwanese five spice and American buttermilk flavors, resulting in a rich and flavorful taste that will leave your taste buds craving more.
Flavors from Asia
We serve our Taiwanese fried chicken with a variety of house-made toppings and sauces, including the fan favorite 2D Korean hot sauce, Wasabi Aioli, Japanese BBQ sauce and our best-selling pineapple hot sauce.
These toppings and sauces perfectly complement the rich and flavorful taste of the chicken, adding an extra layer of deliciousness to the dish.
