Rating NYC's SPICIEST Chicken Sandwiches + JEON SOMI Kitchen Takeover! | Heat Eaters
In the season 2 premiere of HEAT EATERS, Chef Esther Choi embarks on a quest to 1). Try NYC’s spiciest chicken sandwiches! and 2). create her own ULTIMATE version with K-pop superstar, JEON SOMI. The adventure begins at Pecking House, a restaurant that went viral during the pandemic, and famous for its fried chicken that at one point boasted a waitlist of 10,000 customers. At Pecking House, Chef Eric Huang teaches Esther the culinary process for their renowned Chinese Nashville-style, spicy chili oil-dipped chicken sandwich served on milk bread. Next, Esther meets up with Chef Chintan Pandya at Rowdy Rooster to sample their notoriously spicy Level 5 Indian Rowdy Sandwich - one that Eric Andre hailed as spicier than anything featured on Hot Ones! After her fact-finding mission, Esther teams up with JEON SOMI to construct their own PERFECT spicy chicken sandwich, using ingredients that Esther personally curated for SOMI. Their creation combines chili-dipped fried chicken, bulgogi coleslaw, extra-hot Flamin' Hot Cheetos, and a unique sauce blend featuring kimchi animal style sauce, buldak sauce, and gochujang tteokkochi sauce. So get ready to up your spice game and tune in to watch Chef Esther Choi learn from the masters of spicy chicken!
