Les Sisters' Southern Kitchen & BBQ
Located in the far northwest corner of the San Fernando Valley, Chatsworth isn’t the most convenient place for many Angelenos, but as long as your destination is Les Sisters’, then the trip will be worth it. This Valley institution has been around since the mid-80s and is home to some of the best soul food in the city. Every meal needs to start with the fried chicken, with its crackly, Cajun-spiced skin, but it’s their spicy chicken jambalaya we’ll be thinking about for days afterward. It’s salty, peppery, and filled with succulent chunks of chicken that pop with flavor. Round out your meal with some gooey mac and cheese and black-eyed peas.
