our story - Fuku

our story

 

Fuku is the fried chicken joint from chef David Chang – on a mission to change the way people think about fast casual.

Fuku, as a concept, was built off of this really delicious thigh-meat spicy fried chicken sandwich and has since grown to serve a variety of fried chicken offerings, sides, and slushies. guided by many of the same principles that David Chang instills in all his restaurants, Fuku is focused on offering guests approachable, tasty food that draws from both Asian and American influences.

Fuku’s culinary innovation is led by Executive Chef, Stephanie Abrams, who joined in 2017.



 

What started as a secret sandwich at Momofuku Noodle Bar in NYC soon grew into FUKUSANITY when Fuku opened its own store in 2015 in the east village.

Fuku has grown to be available in NYC, Miami, and DC, as well as more than 20+ concessions across the US.
