$5 Fried Chicken Sandwiches in NYC are the City's Best Kept Secret

We all know that the cost of living is high. It’s a global issue impacting billions of people. One of the most expensive cities on the planet is New York City. If you’ve been there before, you know everything costs more in the Big Apple. If you’ve never had the pleasure of going to NYC, perhaps you’ve seen the tv shows or movies filmed there. It won’t take you long to realize it costs a lot of dollars to enjoy yourself in that city. However, there are some inexpensive hidden gems.

In a recent TikTok video by content creators @consumingcouple, they visit The Tiki Chick. It’s situated on The Upper West Side. This place offers strong cocktails and serves delicious fried chicken sandwiches that cost $5.00. Getting anything in NYC for $5 is unheard of.

Our mouths are watering over those tasty-looking chicken sandwiches. We sure could go for one right about now. But they also serve Spam and veggie Falafel sandwiches. All three options are making us hungry. Let’s see how the TikTok community feels about this cost-effective hot spot. User @Desi wrote, “I live around the corner. They’re the best.” @matthiasOBfiery exclaimed, “DONT GIVE AWAY THE INSIDER SPOTS! JEEZ.” @Tori Glorii💜 remarked, “Stumbled into this place waiting on my table at Jacobs pickles. Drinks had me GONE.” @Lauren McGill disclosed, “The falafel one was actually really good!”

It sounds like we’ll be hitting this place up the next time we visit NYC. We’re all for scrumptious chicken sandwiches and strong but yummy cocktails. If you want to stay in the know about where to go, check out @consumingcouple’s TikTok channel. You’ll be glad you did.
