Did someone say fried chicken? What, really? Gluten Free Fried Chicken?

It was 7 pm on a Friday night, and I was down at the LINQ Promenade in Las Vegas.

I strolled into Brooklyn Bowl and was keen to see if there was something on the menu I could eat. Having been here previously for drinks and to watch a band, I knew they had some southern-style pub grub on the menu, so I wasn’t confident. Boy was I in for a shock!

Seated, ready, and just about to open the menu, I had primed myself to be happy with a salad if there was nothing suitably Gluten-Free. Upon opening the menu, I saw their signature, famed fried chicken dish. My heart melted at the thought, “Geez, I wish I could have that!” However, upon looking closer, right underneath it was clearly written ‘Gluten-Free Option Available’ What?? Really? Gluten Free Fried Chicken?? My heart skipped a beat as the excitement started to stir, tantalizing my tastebuds. At this point, I had been Gluten-Free for 18 months, so I haven’t eaten fried chicken since then.

The waiter had stopped by to take my drinks order and ask if I needed help with the menu. I enquired about the Fried Chicken, and to my surprise, he explained everything from how they prep the dish to how they cook it separately. His knowledge and easy explanation made me feel way more comfortable and less of a ‘high-maintenance diner.’

He recommended the “Roasted Adobo Corn, with queso fresco, chipotle butter and lime” as a starter, and to top it off, he offered to shear the corn off the cob so I wouldn’t have to worry about it getting stuck in my teeth! Oh my god, seriously, it’s like this guy knew me.

The corn arrived not too long after ordering it, and well…. it’s everything I could imagine plus more. It was roasty, toasty, sweet, spicy and bitter all at once, yet not overdone. You can taste every flavor and savor the lingering kick in your mouth it leaves.

At this point, I’m sooo excited!

Now for the main event, out comes my “Gluten Free Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and collard greens with bacon and honey!

I sat there for a while, just jaw dropped at this piece of delicious looking art sitting right in front of me. It almost looked too good to eat! I picked up the fat crispy thigh and sunk my teeth into like a famished carnivore. I tore, sucked, slurped and crunched at this titillating thigh.

Need I say more? I devoured the plate in no time at all. I had to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy, but instead was eating as if someone was going to take my plate away from me… I guess that’s what happens when you haven’t had something this good in so long.

Overall, is it a meal that I would eat every week? Perhaps not, as it’s not overly the healthiest of meals, but boy, is it going on my ‘Naughty once in a while list.’

Here’s a link direct to the menu – or, you can try cooking some yourself with the help of these recipes.
