If you’re in the mood for some fried chicken, but can’t decide between hot and spicy or served on sweet waffles, look no further than Koreatown’s Fire Chicken. This Nashville-style chicken spot is known for its large portions and sizable waffle sandwiches, which are things we can all support. This sweet and savory sandwich consists of two eggy American waffles filled with spicy chicken breasts, creamy slaw, and sweet pickles. The chicken here is always made to order, so expect it to come out hot and bright red from their dry rub. It also has a great crunchy skin that locks in the meat’s juices like a fancy sous-vide pouch. If you’re in the mood for something dunkable instead, their Fire Chicken box is a pile of boneless hot chicken bites that will make you wonder why you’d ever eat regular nuggets again.
