ORIGINAL AMERICAN CHICKEN in Jackson Heights, N.Y. is a most unusual and delightful mecca. Its charismatic owner, Anwar Ahmed, has created a wonderfully compelling hot spot in this colorful neighborhood.
A unique and eccentric garden plot at curbside draws you in. It is unlike any other on the avenue. Anwar has a fascination with vintage automobiles, owns several, and loves Frank
Sinatra music. One of his eye catching cars is apt to be parked out front when Anwar is in the
house. Sinatra's singing often soars out of the cars or wafts out of the place itself.
Scads of decoy chickens, ceramic, feathered and otherwise abound everywhere. A testament
to the heart of this establishment - simple, affordable and excellent food.
THE ORIGINAL AMERICAN CHICKEN is a hub of vital energy, a mix of delicious fun, food and
playful aesthetic. What a luscious find in an already lively and diverse community
Mr. Ahmed deserves a big star and thank you for so brightening and expertly feeding the
people of our village.
