The Carolina Fried Chicken Map details over 300 fried chicken dishes across North and South Carolina, from classic Southern-fried to newfangled fowl with fancy fixin’s. All the fried favorites are included, from biscuits and sandwiches, to chicken-and-waffles, Nashville-style hot chicken, Korean double-fried, smoked-fried, wings, and two styles that originated in the Carolinas — dipped chicken and Calabash chicken.
On the front, each restaurant has a symbol identifying their most popular fried chicken dish and detailing how its fried — preparation methods (such as brining, marinating, battering, etc.), oil type, and frying method. Flip the map over for restaurant addresses, phone numbers and hours, with additional icons denoting any restaurants that have a buffet or cafeteria line, as well as places that are cash-only or take-out-only.
The map also details the history and culture of fried chicken, packing in illustrations and explanations along the margins. For instance, you’ll learn:
