Best Chicken Sandwich

When David Chang opened Fuku in New York City’s East Village in 2015, people lined up around the block for its singular menu item: a perfectly crisp chicken sandwich made with gourmet precision. The Fuku phenomenon swept the city, and now there are multiple locations and several iterations—as fingers, glazed or spicy. When Momofuku opened its doors in Las Vegas, rumors abounded as to whether the sandwich would make it on the menu. A variation has, but it’s really all about timing. Available during the social hour (3–5:30 p.m.) and late-night menus (11 p.m.–midnight Sun.–Thurs., 11 p.m.–1 a.m. Fri.–Sat.), the spicy chicken sandwich is accented by cucumbers and lettuce and served on a potato roll. The $11 sandwich is a steal, whether you are sober or slightly intoxicated. Inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas,
