This is a new category for me. I'm going to use it to collect postings about the best of an individual items. I have one for memorable meals, but I thought that I'd start one to have a single category for best things. This one is about what I think is the best fried chicken in the city. L.A. Chicken in Richmond, in my mind the best fried chicken. It is crunchy, spicy and most importantly - not greasy. The fries are adequate, typical frozen variety, and the gravy is not good. But the chicken is brilliant. In Toronto I used to go to a place called Chicken Joy that had these amazing fries, but the chicken, while good, couldn't hold a candle to the chicken L.A. Chicken. That's how good it is. It is a very good thing it is in Richmond and not just down the street from me. I would be 300 pounds.
L.A. Chicken. 11420 Thorpe Road. Richmond. 604-278-4737.
