Empire builders Paul Qui and Moto Utsunomiya are stretching East Side King’s reign over to East 6th’s revamped The Four Horsemen with a brand new creation: fried chicken sandwiches. Said sandwiches are made with green curry and buttermilk fried thighs, Kewpie mayo, and kimchi pickles on a potato roll.

Similar to its setup at Hole in the Wall, the ESK crew is working out of an actual kitchen rather than a trailer. It will be open from Wednesdays to Sundays, 4 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.; scope out the full menu below.

As an introduction to the neighborhood, the East Side King crew, including chef de cuisine Clinton Kendall, and Four Horsemen owner and manager Dax Foster filmed a video of the group drinking and inhaling everything on Dirty Sixth.

Casual fried chicken is the country’s latest rage, from David Chang’s giant spicy Fuku to Shake Shack’s limited ChickenShack.

Looking ahead, East Side King is still opening a second Thai Kun truck slated for Steampunk Saloon, where the trailer held a series of pop-ups this month. The team is also working on Thai Kun’s first brick and mortar set for The Domain this fall.
