Dulan’s is an LA soul food institution with one location in Inglewood and two in South LA. Our favorite of the bunch is their recently renovated flagship on Crenshaw, which has a big dining room ideal for a group lunch or dinner before a show at SoFi. The walls at this casual counter-service spot are lined with framed photos of Joe Biden, Janet Jackson, and various A-listers who’ve dropped by over its three decades in business. The true celebrity at Dulan’s, however, is the golden fried chicken. It’s a well-seasoned love triangle of salt, pepper, and crunch, and you won’t find a consistently juicier version anywhere in LA. A close runner-up is their fall-apart braised oxtails (served on weekends), plus sides of braised greens, candied yams, red beans, and complimentary cornbread muffins. Sit on the covered sidewalk patio if it’s nice out, or grab a table near the neon sign inside for a little more privacy.
