Hotville Chicken

You can find quality hot chicken all over LA these days, but make no mistake, Hotville is an extremely big deal. For one, the Crenshaw restaurant is owned and operated by a member of the family behind Nashville’s iconic Prince’s Hot Chicken. Secondly, the chicken itself is incredible - the skin is crunchy, crimson, and super-hot - and identical to the quality you’d get in Tennessee. But for us, the most exciting (and unexpected) element of Hotville is how tremendous everything else on the menu is. From a fried fish sandwich and banana cream pudding to the best mac and cheese we’ve eaten in LA in a long time - Hotville is much more than just a Nashville chicken spot, it’s a full restaurant that everyone needs to be eating at right now.
