Cambridge, MA: Kimchi-Brined Fried Chicken Sandwiches Strike Back!

  • 428 Memorial Drive Cambridge, MA, 02139 United States

My friends at Roxy's Grilled Cheese in Allston are helping me throw another fried chicken party. The truck will be parked in front of 428 Memorial Drive on MIT campus serving up spicy kimchi-brined, double-fried chicken sandwiches. Grab a sandwich, get your book signed, say hi, and have fun.

There is a limit of 230 sandwiches being sold, stay tuned on my twitter feed where I'll keep al live update of how many we have left. I don't want anyone to come and not get a bite!

Chicken sandwiches are cash only. Discounted signed books are available for purchase via cash or credit card.
