The Story:  There’s a new pod in town. Baerlic Brewing opened up a taproom and food cart lot in NE Portland and brought in eight food carts. One of those vendors, Flew The Coop, is bringing southern fried chicken to Rose City Park.

Fried chicken sandwiches have become ubiquitous throughout the Portland food scene with both restaurants and food carts putting out tasty little gems. I was first introduced to the southern style hot chicken more than a few years ago when a native of Memphis moved to town. I hadn’t really explored the southern fried chicken nor the simple fried chicken world other than buckets of KFC at school potlucks as a child. So many options and so many flavors and styles. Portland, be proud of the options you have.

Nashville Hot from Flew The Coop

Flew The Coop offers up five different southern fried chicken sandwiches. The KFC isn’t what you think, just a play on words. Korean Fried Chicken tossed in a sweet & spicy Korean chili sauce, topped with pickled daikon, pickled carrot, sesame seeds, & slaw.  Or you can get a traditional fried chicken or even Buffalo chicken. I opted for the Nashville Hot. There is something going on in Memphis and Nashville and Buffalo where hot sauce and chicken just simply fall into place. The Nashville was spot on. Spicy as F, yet with a creamy coleslaw to calm the tastebuds and pickles on the bottom. I love that mix. The first bite, your tongue gets vinegar and then spice and then the cool of the slaw.

Flew The Coop is now open at the The Barley Pod which offers an indoor taproom by Baerlic Beer and outdoor covered seating. A welcoming place to enjoy lunch or dinner with friends and family. Next time you’re in the neighborhood, stop on by and let them know Food Carts Portland sent ya.
