Phat Birds spicy chicken in East L.A. – so hot right now

Phat Birds East Los Angeles

East Los Angeles  — Phat Birds on East 3rd is getting a lot of attention, and growing fast. After a strong opening last year, it has now made it into the L.A. Times list of “Four great L.A. fried chicken restaurants to try now,” and reportedly is expanding to a second location in Inglewood later in the year.

The Times seemed particularly enamored of the scorching-hot chicken and honey, while noting chef Max Henriquez’s specialties of honey-dipped, Nashville hot and plain fried chicken. Side dishes that also come in for glory are the house-made chicharrones, the cheddar-and-chive corn fritters and the spicy slaw.

Phat Birds has limited lunch hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, and serves lunch and dinner Fridays and Saturdays. It’s located at 4701 E. 3rd St. at Arizona Avenue in East Los Angeles.
