Starting tonight, the Asian-inspired eatery will once again be dishing out its playful take on chicken and dumplings for all of the eager eaters frequenting our Fenway establishment. The culinary brainchild of Tim and Nancy Cushman (the husband-wife duo known for renowned local restaurants o ya and Hojoko), Ms. Clucks made its debut on our city’s food scene when we first opened our doors in 2019. To this day, Clucks can only be found here at 401 Park Drive, so its return gives the whole Hub a reason to rejoice.
Packed with Far Eastern influences and flavors, the menu at Clucks comes from Rob Wong, who serves as the group executive chef for Cushman Concepts, as well as aforementioned chef-owner Tim Cushman (a James Beard Award winner, BTW). Its lineup of delicious, poultry-packed dishes include: the Cajun Karaage Chicken Sando, which is crammed with crazy umami touches, like dashi pickles and nori buttermilk ranch; the Karaage Chicken and Waffle Fries drizzled with miso maple syrup; and the can’t-miss Signature Spicy Chicken and Dumpling Noodle Soup, a ramen noodle flavor bomb consisting of spicy ground chicken and truffled chicken wontons—all suspended in a savory bone broth that takes a full 48 hours to make.
Still not won over by the promise of juicy, Japanese-style fried chicken and rich ramen? Ms. Clucks Deluxe has more must-eat items coming hot out the kitchen, so scope out its full menu online—or better yet, stop by Time Out Market Boston to try some of its flavorsome fare for yourself.
