The Mets are adding an outpost of David Chang’s popular chicken spot Fuku at Citi Field.
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.

I'm equally excited about Fuku coming to Citi Field this year as I am about the Mets Starting Rotation— Elliot Teichman (@213MFS) March 30, 2016
Well, not everyone is so impressed, like SI.com’s Jarrel Harris.
This is not SI.com’s official stance.
