Holdaak review image


Some days, all we really have time for is a quick takeout sandwich or a box of chicken tenders in the front seat of our Toyota Corolla. When that moment hits, we go to Holdaak. Originally from Fullerton, this Korean fried chicken specialist now has a quick, order-at-the-counter location right on York Blvd. Go for the original chicken sandwich, which comes with two crunchy, crackly-skinned chicken tenders topped with caramelized onion ketchup and daikon slaw. The whole thing tastes sweet, acidic, and is surprisingly light. And the five-piece spicy chicken tender box with fries and two different sauces is easily the best $10 lunch in the neighborhood.
