Is Japanese Fried Chicken Taking Over Los Angeles?

Let's Eat LA

If you love fried chicken, have you tasted Japanese fried chicken?

Japanese fried chicken is better known as Karaage chicken.

Karaage chicken has a crispy exterior and succulent flesh on the interior. The meal is available as a main course or as an appetiser, but it's tough to stop at just a few pieces of this (ahem, to use a well-known expression) finger-licking chicken.

Los Angeles loves fried chicken. Ippudo's version on Karaage is no exception, and just reading about it might have you salivating.

Ippudo is a prominent Japanese restaurant in Los Angeles with outlets all around the world.

The original Tokyo location was so successful that it spawned a worldwide franchise. There are now locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.

Bursting with umami taste, they use a marinade based on soy sauce, with ginger, mirin, and soy sauce as the major components.

They simmer the chicken in a specific combination of these ingredients before being fried for a crispy exterior and soft within.

You may order them alone or with steamed rice as an option for lunch or supper at Ippudo in West Hollywood.

Go there and order some of their delicious chicken Karaage. Ippudo have one of the greatest versions in all of Los Angeles, but you can find Japanese chicken places popping up all over Los Angeles.

Their boneless chicken bits are so good that you could consume five without even realising it. They also come with dipping sauces, so you won't need to order too many drinks or sides.
