I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…

SADLY, CARLA HALL’S SOUTHERN KITCHEN IS NOW CLOSED.

Spice comes in all forms and while the fried chicken at Carla Hall’s Brooklyn restauarant may look harmless enough – it has a serious burn. This is especially true as you get higher in numbers on the sampler plate of her hot fried chicken tenders. They range from a bold honey and hot paprika marinate (Number 2) to a fiery pineapple and habañero (Number 4) all the way up to a hellish trio of banana, carolina reaper, and ghost chili peppers (Number 6). I couldn’t get through the last one, but it was a fun paleate-challenging journey to take. Price: $14.25

I don’t get up to Harlem nearly as often as I should, which is a shame since there’s a whole world of food options up there. I did some exploring recently with my friend and food photographer extraordinaire Donny Tsang in preparation for an upcoming video. And we got a taste of some of NY’s best chicken and waffles.
