This Japanese fried chicken spot is another addition to The Row in downtown LA. It’s an order-at-the-counter set-up that serves a small menu of fried chicken baskets, a rice bowl, and a very tasty sandwich. The fried chicken is gluten-free, and comes with a choice of fries or onigiri (rice balls) and a bunch of sauces. But the best thing here is the sandwich, which is filled with pickled daikon, jalapeños, and a miso jam we’d like to take home with us.
