Fuku’s menu of fried chicken sandos, fingers and waffles fries have made it a favorite among New Yorkers. Now, Fuku is coming to Texas. It is making its debut in DFW today, April 6, with three virtual kitchens opening in the Dallas area, including one in Plano.

The concept has humble roots, starting out as a secret menu item at Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City. That menu item grew so popular that celebrity chef David Chang, founder Momofuku and Fuku, decided to open its own store in 2015.

“We’re thrilled to let our Texan fans know we’re finally making our way to the Lone Star State. Through this delivery-only model, we’re able to introduce Fuku to Dallas…in a safe and controlled way, allowing Fuku fans to enjoy it from the comfort of home,” said CEO of Fuku Alex Munoz-Suarez.

Fuku and its delivery partner REEF will be donating opening day proceeds to Southern Smoke Foundation, a Houston-based crisis relief organization for people in the food and beverage industry.

Menu items are available only for delivery through Uber Eats, DoorDash, Grubhub and Postmates. Delivery via Uber Eats is free through April 30, 2021.
