4. Wangs, Southern Soul-Asian

Wangs Fried Chicken, located on 671 Union Street in Park Slope, combines Southern soul food with Asian flavors. The dishes are served from a take out window on a quiet street, where patrons can enjoy their comfort meal on outdoor benches.

At Wangs, fried chicken comes in a variety of different iterations: one is brined for 24 hours in Southeast Asian spices before being breaded and fried in the Southern style; another is eaten in a Vietnamese-style bánh mì. Sides include collard greens served with Chinese sausage, ginger and garlic; and mac & cheese with cheddar, fontina cheese, fried onion, and gochugaru bread crumbs.
