Phat Birds in East L.A.; French fare in Highland Park; Father’s Day at Haché L.A.


East Los Angeles is in on the fried chicken fad with the coming of Phat Birds, Eater L.A. reports. According to the company description on Yelp, the free-range birds are brined overnight, then seasoned and mixed with several types of flour and corn starch. Adding to the down-home experience are homemade pickles, self-cured bacon and sides made with mostly organic ingredients.

Prior to its brick-and-mortar spot, the brand was a pop-up concept that appeared around town, including the now closed TiGeorges’ Haitian Cuisine. Business hours are limited, though, with doors open from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. for the time being. Phat Birds is located in the 4700 block of 3rd Street in East Los Angeles.

  1. Phat Birds used to be a hot dog restaurant that didn’t survive the construction of the Gold Line Extension to East LA.!
