The Lil’ American pod has quickly become one of our favorite food hubs thanks to carts like Bake on the Run, Cache Cache, the seafood specialist behind Fracture Brewing Taproom, and Fry Baby—their menu of Korean-American fried chicken means hyper-crunchy wings and massive drumsticks that are seriously meal-sized. Maybe that’s the American part? The move here is to order a bag, a.k.a. the chicken combo with a side (get the kimchi mac and cheese). The soy garlic glaze might be the obvious choice, but don’t shy away from the snow cheese, a slightly sweet umami blitz that’s akin to parmesan shaken from a container but actually good. Take a beeper, find a seat at a communal picnic table, and wait to be dazzled.
