  Last modified on January 10th, 2021

Asian-fusion sandwich shop King Wang’s has just relocated from Bushwick to the Upper West Side. The new shop is located at 522 Columbus Avenue, at 85th Street.

They’re currently sharing the space with The Great Burrito, which is offering delivery and take-out from the storefront. This address was previously occupied by Brad’s Burgers and BBQ, which has consolidated its operations with Good Enough To Eat, next door.

King Wang’s offers a twist on classic American sandwiches by using Korean, Japanese and Chinese flavors and cooking techniques.

The menu comes with three combos:

A fried chicken sandwich served with a Szechuan slaw and Wang’s secret Korean pepper sauce:

Sides include brussell sprouts and ramen fries, and there’s a kids menu with mac & cheese and chicken nuggets.

Combo meals come with ramen fries, which are crinkle-cut with a special spice rub. A deluxe version of these fries comes with bacon, scallions and “homemade American cheese wiz.”
