Side Chick

If Savoy Kitchen is the queen of Hainan chicken in the SGV, Side Chick is her cool son who everybody wants to hang out with on the weekends. Located in the outdoor food court at the Westfield mall in Arcadia, Side Chick’s tiny counter will have a line pretty much at all times, but the Hainan chicken is worth it. A mix of both white and dark meat with seasoned cucumbers and ginger scallion sauce make this a perfect, kind-of-healthy lunch before shopping. The garlic rice on the side is some of the best rice we’ve ever had.
