Spicy Village Spicy Big Tray Chicken and Pancakes in NYC New York

I was back at Spicy Village two days in a row as after trying their hand-pulled noodles, I wanted to try their popular Spicy Big Tray Chicken and Pork Pancakes.

Spicy Village's famed Spicy Big Tray Chicken at USD12.95 and a serving of hand-pulled noodles at an additional USD1.25.

Inside the big tray or mini wok, there were many large roughly chopped chunks of fried chicken leg with bone and skin on. The chicken chunks were half submerged in a fiery looking, hot spicy broth.

The chicken chunks were well marinated, lightly battered and then deep fried before further cooking in the spicy broth. The fried chicken chunks were savoury, slightly crispy outside, tender inside and tasted spicy from the chili broth clinging to the fried chicken.

There were several pieces of these cubed potatoes which were deep fried to crisp the outside before they were thrown into the boiling spicy broth to cook.

The spicy chicken were eaten with hand-pulled noodles which were roughly torn ribbons of hand kneaded wheat dough.

The broth was light bodied, slightly watery. Inside the watery broth was a suspension of many different spices like cardamom, anise, cumin, peppercorn and dried chili. Nice aroma and tastes of tongue numbing spices. The spicy broth was slightly more salty than my taste. I like it that the broth was not overly greasy.

I requested the friendly waitress to pack what I could not finish eating and ordered a pork pancake to try ;-D

Spicy Village's pork pancake was really good ;-D

Savoury sweet juicy pork mash spread between a flat pan fried hinged bun which was crispy outside and nicely chewy inside. A few cilantro leaves (Chinese coriander) added a refreshing delicate grassy minty crunch.

These pork (and also the beef) pancakes are highly recommended Must Try treats at Spicy Village.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
