Where I’ve Been Getting Takeout of Late, Part 19
The Village Bakery, Woodside
The colonel’s got nothing on The Village Bakery, when it comes to a grand bucket of fried chicken.
The Woodside restaurant and bakery’s newest offering is “Fried Chicken Fridays.” And if last Friday’s experience was any indication, it’s already a hit. When I went to go pick up my order, the entire bar was covered with takeout bags, most for the chicken.
For $34, you get an actual bucket containing eight pieces of fried chicken, as well as containers of coleslaw, mac ‘n’ cheese, and two buttermilk cheddar-chive biscuits.
It’s designed to serve 2 to 4. The chicken alone is definitely more than two people can finish in one sitting.
