    Louisiana Fried Chicken?

    I used to get some good fried chicken at this place called Louisiana Fried Chicken. a friend of mine drove past the other day and the sign was notably different from what we both remembered . . .

    One of my favorite wings in our area is a Chinese fusion food place. They have Hawaiian and Korean inspired dishes as well. But their wings? Amazing. They dry brine them in some yellow seasoning (I dunno what) then fry them KFC style. The best fried chicken in town (in my opinion) comes from a Peruvian place, same deal... some sort of rub that isn't normal on fried chicken, then a perfect fried chicken exterior.

    Give it a shot if they still sell fried chicken there, you might be surprised.

      I'm there with you on Asian fried chicken, actually. there are two Japanese restaurants I frequent (or did often before Covid) that serve the best fried chicken drumettes/wings. i've also had some pretty good Korean BBQ. So, I'll certainly try some Louisiana Asian Kitchen to see what it's all about. really, I just thought the use of the existing sign was rather humorous. It's like the "Vons Market" that becomes "Jons Market" or "Walmart" becoming "SmallMart". Wow. Tough crowd tonight.

    you are correct, Sir! Maybe this reference will help.

      So I assume they kept the chicken or SOMETHING on the menu since they are still claiming "Famous since"

    There used to be a Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken in the Gaslamp, but it looks like it's a noodle shop now. No idea if it was related.

      I remember back in the 70's when the Gaslamp district was part of the seedy underbelly of downtown. Hell, downtown was pretty seedy all around.

      Horton plaza had a toe hold on my heart. The Seven Seas. Pussycat Caberet. Ever hear of the Sportsman's Club?

    Try this one out.
    really freaking good. And authentic.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
