New Yorkers rejoice as Citi Field adds trendy chicken sandwich spot

Wednesday March 30th, 2016

The Mets are adding a new hip concession option befitting a National League pennant. 

Starting next week, Citi Field will be home to the fourth outpost of Fuku, chef David Chang’s trendy chicken sandwich spot. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, the spot’s signature spicy fried chicken sandwich will cost $12 at the ballpark (it’s $8 at the locations in midtown and the East Village). An order of chicken fingers will run a person $11 and jalapeno-seasoned fries are $6.50.

“This is a great sandwich, with fatty thigh meat crisped to an audible crunch and at the same time possessing enviable juiciness,” the Village Voice wrote in June, so you can understand why New Yorkers are so excited to have Fuku at Mets games.

Well, not everyone is so impressed, like’s Jarrel Harris.

This is not’s official stance.
