With an odd name and a Westfield, New Jersey location,
Korean-fusion “RoosterSpin” really delivers.
The concept is based on double-fried chicken in an industrial setting, and with DJ’s spinning old vinyl.
I started with a sweet and murky sugar cane drink
infused with algae.
But the food is actually terrific.
It has creative intelligence behind it and you can sense the care in translating fusion flavors.
Crispy soft shell crab: creamy and delicious.
Fresh and bright, with an excellent sesame-mango dressing.
Only the steamed, vegetable dumplings were familiar,
more authentic than adventurous.
But the spicy tuna was outstanding.
The service is good and the interior is fun.
I especially liked the glassy string-lights room divider,
a play on Asian paper lanterns.
