mmm... fried chicken.
oddly located inside the new zion market (here in san diego) by the produce section-- and i do mean INSIDE the market, and not in the food court -- are a few unassuming looking food stands, one which is called gala chicken.
the chicken is fried to order and comes in three flavors: sweet soy, crispy, gala spicy. it takes about fifteen minutes, but boy... totally worth it.
customers can sit in chairs lined up at the bar while they wait.
bffbf and i have only tried the spicy chicken, and it's fantastic. the sauce is quite spicy with a well-balanced sweetness to it, and the chicken is fried to perfection. i believe the order below was 8 or 9 dollars, and comes with a little container of pickled daikon. while the price may seem a bit steep, especially considering your back is facing the produce section while you eat, i promise you, IT'S WORTH IT.
i realize that i already said that in the previous paragraph. i get repetitive when i'm excited. also, my stomach is growling like crazy right now just thinking about this.
