New Golden Daisy

New Golden Daisy

You have to love a place that sells Chinese food by the pound. New Golden Daisy is one of my childhood favorites, and they have the tastiest fried chicken drummettes (the part of the wing that looks like a mini leg) in the City. For around two bucks, you’ll be stuffed. Like VIP, the interior is a bit tattered and greasy (though their health score is higher at 80), but the smell will lure you in. After eating the first bite, you’ll be addicted — this stuff is like crispy crack. They usually close around 6 p.m. so get two orders. When you go through withdrawals, you can reheat the drummettes in the oven at midnight (they hold up remarkably well).
