chicken fingers! Originally uploaded by ticonderoga’s malevolent marsupial

For the past 3 summers, I was one of the many people in the city who worked downtown. Downtown was kind of a deadly place to work, only because I’d NEVER bring a lunch and ALWAYS go out to eat.

One of my favorite places to go eat?? Mitzi’s! They’re known for their homemade chicken fingers created by restaurant owner, Shirley Eng. Chicken fingers weren’t always on their menu. Mitzi’s used to be a Chinese food restaurant, but chicken fingers were added to the mix about 19 years ago.

My favorite thing to get at Mitizi’s? It most definitely has to be the chicken fingers and fries, with their homemade honey dill and coleslaw..SOO GOOD! Not a fan of the fries? Chicken fingers can also be served with fried rice, just in case you wanted to keep the “Chinese” in your meal.

A warning however! If you DO decide to sample these world famous chicken fingers, I suggest you hit the restaurant EARLY! Mitzi’s fills up FAST.
