This spot is located near the famous flower market in Downtown Los Angeles. They serve buttermilk fried chicken with waffle. Don’t forget to pour the delectable syrup over it!

Tokyo Fried Chicken

Go early and expect a line before the spot even opens. Their karaage-inspired fried chicken goes well with the sides, from sweet and spiced butternut squash, to curry creamed corn, to shishito peppers with den miso and arare. They also offer thin plastic gloves for your convenience.

Their fried chicken truly blew us away and re-defined our standard for a good fried chicken. You can't go wrong with either the Korean Fried Chicken or Chef's special creation - Malaysian Fried Chicken.
