A great personal debacle has been resolved. See, the courtyard at Chicken Scratch is one of the hippest, coolest, I-wanna-have-a-beer-there-with-ALL-my-friends places in the city. But problem is, and please judge me on this, I don't really like fried chicken. Roasted chicken is OK, but I still rarely go out of my way to eat it.

In addition to the birds and tacos, they have tamales (always have had those, but they're worth mentioning again), chicken and vegetable soup. They also added hummus wraps and new sides include roasted eggplant and a cabbage-jicama vinegar slaw. Plus, they changed their mac and cheese: It has green chiles and hominy now.
