The $1000 USD "Golden Fried Chicken" is the hottest new trend in New York. But is it even worth it? Read on to find out more!
A sports bar and lounge called Ainsworth in New York City is serving up “golden fried chicken,” and they’re taking the term quite literally!
They make their “golden fried chicken” with real 24k gold
Serving up unique and out-of-this-world dishes isn’t a new thing for the Ainsworth. Their other “extreme” and luxurious food items include a mac & cheese burger, among others. But, the golden wings are definitely right at the top of the list.
According to a video from Food Insider, the wings are brined for up to 12 hours in a lemon and bay leaf mix, massaged in a garlic and paprika rub, and then deep fried.
After being fried, the wings are dipped in gold butter mixed with honey buffalo sauce. Then, gold dust is sprinkled on the wings, turning it into actual golden fried chicken.
Instagram celebrity Foodgōd helped develop the dish with the restaurant
Ainsworth developed the dish with Jonathan Cheban, also known as Foodgōd, who also appears on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The wings are available in different sets.
You can order 10 wings for US$30 (S$40), 20 for US$60 (S$80), or 50 wings and a bottle of Champagne Armand de Brignac for US$1000 (S$1300).
The Instagrammable meal quickly went viral on social media, with a number of people commenting that the dish is totally “extra.”
However, others commented that the wings are a total waste of money.
Why eat $1000 wings when we can just eat the rich?
