When we saw Kentucky Fried Quail pop up on the menu at Aaron May's newest venture, Praying Monk, we were intrigued and pretty excited to try one of these little birds covered in batter and deep fried. Come on -- deep fried quail?! It sounds great!
And then we saw the same dish make an appearance on Blue Hound Kitchen's menu. Hmmm, really? As good as it sounds, do we need two plates of Kentucky Fried Quail in this city?
The answer is yes. It's fried and tasty and not chicken. And, of course, we decided we had to put them up against each other (because that's what we do, duh).
Read on to see which new restaurant has the lock down on this unique dish. To up the ante, we've include the sides that accompany the little bird -- so for this one, we're judging the entire dish.
