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.
