Cuisine all around the world has its variances depending on the location and region. While each culture has its own flavors and uniquer ingredients, many places utilize the same base dish to deliver the flavor. For example, you can find fried chicken just about anywhere in the world. However, the flavor of the fried chicken will greatly depend on your location and where you get it from. Sure fried chicken in itself tastes great, but many places like to add their own personal twist to fried chicken. Check out these five places in the greater Los Angeles area that you can get some tasty and unique fried chicken.

5. Howlin’ Rays‘s Nashville Hot Chicken

When a place takes upwards of two hours from getting in line to receiving food for customers, that either means they work slowly or they have sky-high demand. Luckily for Howlin’ Ray’s, they fall under the latter case. In fact, they even boast when their line only takes an hour to get through. So this Howlin’ Ray’s place in Los Angeles’ Chinatown only opens for five hours on five days of the week. No matter what day or time you go there, expect to wait at least an hour to finally receive your food. Why does it take that long? Howlin’ Ray’s makes the best Nashville Hot Chicken this side of the Mississippi. Nashville Hot Chicken does not taste like any ordinary spicy chicken – it has its own unique combination of savory, zest, zing, tart, and spice that no other type of chicken can match. You could only find better Nashville Hot Chicken in Nashville itself. If you find that you have up to two hours to kill, why not spend it waiting for some Nashville Hot Chicken from Howlin’ Ray’s?

4. Jumping Däk‘s Korean Fried Chicken

If you visit Jumping Däk, you will get Korean Fried Chicken and not much else, but you will get Korean Fried Chicken made very well! Having just opened about a year ago, Jumping Däk boasts a menu specializing in the savory food, along with sides and desserts to accompany the main course. This fast-casual restaurant replaced an old Hawaiian BBQ fast-food restaurant that never really saw too many customers. However, with the recent opening of a ramen restaurant next door, it made sense to open something here to take advantage of the overflow of the ramen restaurant’s customers, and here we have Jumping Däk. For those who have never tasted Korean Fried Chicken, luckily Jumping Däk provides samples of their three flavors: Sweet, Spicy (pictured below), and Fiery. Sweet and Fiery explain themselves, while Spicy represents a happy medium of the Sweet and Fiery. Basically, imagine popcorn chicken tossed in their signature sauces. Customers can enjoy this Korean Fried Chicken a la carte, as a sandwich, or as a combo with sides and a drink.

3. Densetsu no Sutadonya‘s Karaage Don

We moved from Nashville to Korea, and now we move to Japan. Fried chicken exists all over Asia, and each country does their fried chicken a little differently. In the case of Japan, each city or region cooks differently. However, for the major cities of Japan, they have a locally popular place called Densetsu no Sutadonya, known for their Sutadon. The word Sutadon consists of “suta” for stamina and “don” for bowl, so Sutadon literally means “stamina bowl” in Japanese. While originally found in Japan, Southern California now has a Densetsu no Sutadonya in Mitsuwa Marketplace in Torrance. This location prepares food the same way they do in Japan – using extremely high temperatures to cook everything quickly and all at once. You can taste this best in their Karaage Don. They basically flash-fry the meat, so it gets cooked without having it soak in all the oil. That way you can enjoy the chicken’s true flavor instead of a mouthful of oil.

2. Abigaile Restaurant‘s Fried (Jidori) Chicken

Have you heard of Kobe Beef? Kobe Beef represents a higher quality of beef, much higher than that of Angus beef. A higher quality grade of meat applies to more than just beef – it applies to chicken too, but in this case, we refer to it as Jidori Chicken. Just like how Kobe Beef tastes better than normal beef, Jidori Chicken tastes better than regular chicken, and you can taste the difference at Abigaile Restaurant in Hermosa Beach. Although appearing upscale and fancy, Abigaile actually functions like a casual gastropub, especially given their location by the beach so that beachgoers can dine at Abigaile without worry of their outfit. Perhaps Abigaile appears upscale due to their food menu, which contains some highly eclectic items such as their simply named Fried Chicken. Abigaile’s approach to Jidori Chicken contains togarashi in the batter, giving it a kick in each bite without the need for sauce. Speaking of sauce, this chicken comes with housemade hot sauce and preserved lemon gribiche, along with papaya slaw. $15 allows you to taste this upscale version of fried chicken.

1. Jimmy’s Famous Tavern‘s Southern Fried Chicken

If you seek classic American cuisine with an artisanal touch, look no further than Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern (JFAT). Reinventing traditional restaurant faire, JFAT covers many grounds of cuisine familiar to many with their high-quality approach to cooking. Currently boasting five locations between Los Angeles County, Orange County, and San Diego County, JFAT takes what you know about traditional American restaurants and turns it up to eleven. Between brunch, lunch, dinner, and a full bar, any time of the day makes for a great time to stop on by JFAT and enjoy a bite or sip or more. Any time of the day makes a great time to sink your teeth into JFAT’s Southern Fried Chicken. The batter contains Herbes de Provence, which gives the chicken so much flavor that you do not need any sauce or condiment for it – enjoy the chicken on its own for true bliss. Anyway, this fried chicken comes served with garlic mashed potatoes, thyme gravy, and green beans, all for $20 a plate.

When the seasons change, many more things change than just the weather. Looking at the weather alone, Southern California currently experiences a massive heat wave that may make you believe that the seasons had not turned yet. The pharmaceutical industry has come under heavy scrutiny. Scientists have discovered flowing water on Mars. A drought threatens the inhabitation of California. As a society, we cannot accurately predict what radical event will change the world next, but we can brace ourselves for anything, as we always have in the past as an enduring society. We can also fall back on what we typically associate with this time of the year. Fall, as we know it, indicates pumpkins, red wine, NFL, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the fall harvest, especially the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, giving us a reason to gorge on Mooncakes. Looking at all these opportunities to feast on favorable foods, we should not overlook outdoor grilling, nor the foods prepared that way. Though the winds will chill the air more so than in the summer, many folks will still utilize the grill up through Thanksgiving. In homage of the veritable fall feast, take a look at these five burgers in the Greater Los Angeles Area that I highly recommend seeking out this season.

5. The Federal‘s Smokehouse Burger

When it comes to barbecue, nothing can beat the meats. Southern barbecue boasts all types of meats, from the smoked chicken to the pulled pork to the spicy sausages to the various beef types and much more. Barbecue restaurants typically limit you to a two-meat or three-meat platter. However, The Federal would like to break that barrier by delivering four different types of meat to your face. As a gastropub, The Federal focuses on quality and taste above all else. Between the craft food, craft beer, and craft cocktails, The Federal carefully creates everything from scratch, such as their Smokehouse Burger. A grilled Angus beef patty gets topped with smoked turkey, pepper bacon, BBQ pulled pork, and smoked cheddar all on a milk bun. For $16, you can experience this mountain of meat that can hardly fit in your mouth.

4. Burger Boss‘ Double Grassfed Beef Burger

As a basic human truth, humans want to have control. When one has control, they feel more comfortable. You may ask,”Control over what?” This can apply to just about anything: control over life, control over work, control over a business, control over simple choices, and more. This paves the way for customization, as it gives customers complete control over what they can order. We have plenty of build-it type restaurants, especially when it comes to sandwiches or pizza. We have not seen many customizable burger places up until now, where we have Burger Boss. Burger Boss may feel like a corporate business what with their multiple locations. However, they only have locations in Orange County and Riverside for now, so you can enjoy this local flavor with their Grassfed Beef Burger. At $8.99 for a double, you get to choose the bun, cheese, sauce, and regular toppings. Go premium for $1.19 per topping by adding things like turkey bacon or avocado.

3. Mighty Kitchen‘s Sliders

Would you consider sliders as burgers? Sliders tend to have a greater bun-to-meat ratio than burgers, which explains why I tend to avoid sliders, not to mention that sliders cost as much or more than fast-food burgers. Few places get sliders right, but luckily I discovered that Mighty Kitchen in Los Alamitos actually does a decent job at delivering fun and tasty sliders. You cannot order sliders a la carte at Might Kitchen – you have to order two or three, and they come with fries. I go with three sliders for $15.50 for the better value, and Mighty Kitchen carries many varieties of sliders, such as (pictured from left to right):

  • HHG (Hella Hot Guac): Chorizo patty, pico de gallo, pepper jack cheese, cholula, spicy mayo, housemade jalapeño pepper jelly, guacamole
  • Western Slider: Cheddar cheeseburger, applewood smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, fried onion ring, pickle, BBQ sauce, special sauce
  • PBM Bacon Cheeseburger: Maple peanut butter, applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, onion, special sauce

2. Humble Potato‘s Karê-bága

Many foods have a region that they typically derive from. For example, schnitzel derives from German cuisine, gyros derive from Greek cuisine, and sushi derives from Japanese cuisine. Some foods have regional differences, such as curry. You can have British curry, Indian curry, Thai curry, Japanese curry, and more, and each type tastes different than others. Speaking of curry, sure you can find curry bowls at just about any Japanese restaurant, but what if you want to enjoy curry as something else? Enter Humble Potato, a humble eatery bringing cuisine from the land of the rising sun to the wild west. Despite the name of the business, Humble Potato carries more than just potatoes – they sling out awesome Japanese-inspired burgers as well, such as the Karê-bága (curry burger, get it?). At $12, this messy burger contains an Angus beef patty, slow-cooked Japanese curry, tomato, yuzu-jalapeño slaw, and a fried egg. For the true burger experience, dig both your hands in and smother your face with this burger.

1. Abricott‘s Abricott Burger w/ Korean Pork Belly

Traditional hamburgers contain a ground beef patty accompanied by an assortment of toppings, usually vegetables as a means of including something somewhat healthy in the burger. The changing times have led to many others ingredients getting thrown into burgers, including other meats, something that Abricott does very well. Locals recognize the small yet humble Abricott in Pasadena for the fusion menu that combines French, Vietnamese, and Thai cuisines. With so many options on the menu, one may overlook the simply titled Abricott Burger. At first, this burger sounds simple with seasoned ground beef, tomato, onions, lettuce, and mayonnaise on a brioche bun, all for just $11.95. However, Abricott turns things up a notch by allowing you to add Korean Pork Belly to the burger for just $1. Suddenly you have a phenomenal taste of the east in your hands. Surprisingly, each mouthful allows you to savor both the beef patty and the pork belly. Abricott does food well, and you ought to taste how well they do food by seeking out this burger the next time you find yourself in or near Pasadena.

They say that variety adds to the spice of life. One can live life completely routinely and habitually day by day, but that leads to a dull and predictable life. These type of people live by the motto, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” In other words, why change something if it already works just fine? I would argue about how boring that sounds, but another would argue “Better safe than sorry.” While you may not successfully convince the stubborn people, many others accept variety in their lives. Trying something different makes life much more interesting, especially when it already changes on a set schedule. In this case, I refer to things that change monthly, such as a monthly pint nite, bottle share, or food specials menu. Speaking of the latter, you can find a terrific monthly specials menu at Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern.

Dedicated to the heart of true craft, Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern (JFAT) understands that cooking requires more than simply skill – cooking requires HEART. Sure their menu contains plenty of amazing dishes that you will want to come back for over and over again in order to try everything. But did you know that JFAT carries a monthly specials menu? In addition to continually updating their menu and adding new items, all JFAT locations now offer a limited-time monthly menu with seasonal eats. This month, I got to try three items from their current specials menu:

  • Grilled Prosciutto-wrapped Figs with Arugula, Goat Cheese, Pine Nuts and Balsamic Syrup – Four halved fresh figs, wrapped with prosciutto, lightly grilled, served around arugula lightly dressed with sherry vinaigrette, and sprinkled with crumbled goat cheese & toasted pine nuts. Figs come drizzled lightly with balsamic syrup
  • Grilled Zucchini, Corn, Red Pepper, Ricotta and Squash Blossom Flatbread – Flatbread topped with Fontina, Ricotta, Parmesan, grilled zucchini, roasted corn, red peppers, and zucchini squash blossoms
  • Pasta with Clams, Andouille Sausage, Corn and Tomatoes – Thick-cut pappardelle pasta tossed with Manila clams, spicy Andouille style sausage, white wine, garlic, tomatoes. and corn

Enjoy something unique at any Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern location while the season lingers! Check out JFAT’s Facebook and Twitter pages to see what else they have that you may like your taste buds to tango with.

The last quarter of the year always makes for the busiest time of the year for just about anyone. Retail workers start working mandatory overtime, food industry workers start working additional weekends & nights, and most other workers have to work increased hours to meet quota by the year’s end. At the same time, many events start taking place, such as holiday parties, football parties, or lots of family events, such as holiday parades. Why would all of this take place at the same time when most people lack time management skills? Luckily, some events can work around your schedule, and work with you to brighten up your holiday season. For those looking for a holiday party venue that works with your needs, look no further than Lucky Strike in Orange.

A bar & restaurant can only provide so much entertainment for parties, and Lucky Strike Orange has that plus bowling. Most visitors to Lucky Strike will find a menu with familiar American cuisine, as well as a full bar carrying all the essentials. However, most visitors may not immediately encounter Lucky Strike’s event/catering offerings. Upon entering the venue, guests can discover a smaller room to the left complete with its own set of bowling lanes. This represents the private party side, and Lucky Strike has recently revealed their holiday events menu. For Lucky Strike’s holiday menu, they offer a more unique selection of food than what they offer in the regular dining area. In addition to the food and drinks provided by Lucky Strike, Lucky Strike can bring in vendors to help with the party, such as a candy counter, photo booth, nitrogen ice cream bar, live DJ, and magician.

If your group or company has not yet decided on a venue for booking a holiday party, check out Lucky Strike at The Outlets at Orange. Explore Lucky Strike’s offerings on their Facebook and Twitter pages as well.

When you go to a restaurant that serves one particular type of cuisine, one will expect to find some familiar items on the menu. For example, when going to an American restaurant, one would expect to see foods like steak, a chicken dish, perhaps some burgers or sandwiches, salads, and more. This occurs thanks to familiarity of that cuisine that the general public has. The more often the general public sees it, the more often they will accept seeing it. When a food item gets overdone, the public can sometimes forget how good it can taste. Fast-food and sit-down restaurants tend to drown their food in sauces and seasonings, preventing customers from tasting the true ingredient – the meat. Very few places highlight the meat rather than the add-ons correctly, but thankfully Nate’s Garden Grill understands not to drench food in sauces and seasonings.

Considered a hidden gem of San Diego County, Nate’s Garden Grill understands that one does not need to saturate a dish in flavorings to make it stand out. Tucked away on the side of the road in the City Heights neighborhood, Nate’s Garden Grill follows the local & sustainable trend with their ingredients, and they want you to taste the local flavor as it should taste. Contrary to the name, Nate’s Garden Grill does not specialize in salads, nor do they only possess a vegetarian or vegan menu. Nate’s Garden Grill carries a good variety of items on their menu that contain plenty of meat dishes, such as their Pulled Pork Sandwich. This customer favorite contains a generous mound of pulled pork smoked in-house and lightly sauced, along with organic kale slaw in a pretzel bun. For just a dollar more, you can add freshly sliced avocado to the sandwich, which completely changes the dynamic of the sandwich. The meat does not contain much sauce, so you get just enough to taste the barbecue sauce, but a light amount enough that you can appreciate the smoked nature of the pork. The body of the avocado helps to bring it all together, as well as provide a high number of nutrients in one serving.

If you seek an amazing, original, and local meal while in San Diego, take a detour towards City Heights and visit Nate’s Garden Grill. You can sink your teeth into the Pulled Pork Sandwich here for $11.75, plus $1 when you add avocado. To see what else Nate’s Garden Grill has grilling up back there, like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter for photos, updates, and a live music schedule.

The humble avocado – a miraculous fruit with so many unique characteristics that it really ought to stand in a food category on its own. Avocados possess limitless culinary versatility thanks to its mild flavor and body that fits into almost any food. You can use avocado as a condiment, spread, topping, entrée, ingredient in a beverage, and so much more. When people most commonly think of avocados, they think of guacamole first before anything else, even the recently famous avocado toast. Avocado toast has existed for a very long time, almost as long as guacamole has existed. Avocado toast gained a recent surge in popularity thanks to social media and the internet making jokes and memes involving avocado toast and millennials. But before the internet started making fun of avocado toast, many businesses had already carried avocado toast or some variation of it on their menus, such as at Wow Wow Waffle.

Hidden away in the south half of San Diego’s North Park neighborhood, Wow Wow Waffle remains one of San Diego’s most popular hidden gem (excuse the oxymoron). One may drive right by Wow Wow Waffle without even noticing it because Wow Wow Waffle resides behind a run-of-the-mill laundromat, and you can only access Wow Wow Waffle using the driveway on the side of that building. Wow Wow Waffle specializes in “street style” Belgian liege waffles, which reminds many of what one may discover from a gourmet food truck. Locals love Wow Wow Waffle for the simple yet delicious waffles grilling out of the tiny kitchen, including the famous The Number Seven. The Number Seven represents Wow Wow Waffle’s signature take on the traditional avocado toast. They take one of their signature liege waffles and top it with smashed avocado, goat cheese crumbles, and caramelized bacon. Wow Wow Waffle makes every dish to order, and since the bacon takes a long time to cook, expect to wait at least 20 minutes if you order one of these. However, when you combine all of the ingredients together in one bite, you will understand what makes Wow Wow Waffle stand out so much.

If you intend to travel there on the weekend, plan to arrive early – Wow Wow Waffle tends to sell out of The Number Seven by noon! But if you do make it when they still have some, you can experience breakfast bliss for $8.50 each. Visit Wow Wow Waffle on Facebook to see what else they have grilling up back there.

Summer has undoubtedly arrived, what with the heat wave and all. The weather does not appear to get any cooler in the next month or two, so cool off with a nice cool treat. The summer season has a great effect on the types of food and drinks that people consume, as more people start to prefer light and refreshing things to consume. Your body just craves it – when you feel hot, your body tells you to go find something cold to eat or drink. If you plan on powering through this heat wave, then Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern has got you covered.

We know and love Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern (JFAT) for their amazing food and great ambiance. Their menu always impresses with rotating and seasonal dishes, and they have plenty of weekly specials that you will want to come back for over and over, such as Happy Hour, Burger & Beer specials, and early dinner (supper) specials. The food menu contains many customer favorites, plus a lot of dishes that depend on the month or season. However, JFAT does not limit seasonal rotations to only their food menu – they apply a seasonal rotation to their drink menu too. Having just launched in early July, JFAT has added six new summer-inspired cocktails to their drink menu. JFAT already had a large list of drinks, and now you can enjoy any of the following to cool yourself off:

  • The Pearfectionist – Tito’s Vodka, Absolut Pear Vodka, Pear Nectar, Agave
  • SoCal Sour – Bulleit Rye, Lemon and Orange Juice, Diseño Malbec
  • Summer Sunrise – Ketel One, Blood Orange Juice, Blood Orange Liqueur, Sparkling Float
  • Blackberry Sangria – Troublemaker GSM, Sacred Bond Brandy, Schnapps, White Grape Juice
  • Peach Sangria – Simi Sauvignon Blanc, Sacred Bond Brandy, Peach Puree, Peach Schnapps
  • Classic Sangria – Simi Sauvignon Blanc, J-FAT Homemade Lemonade, Sacred Bond Brandy, Razzmatazz & Peach Schnapps

Treat yourself to a cool treat at any Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern location while the season lingers! Check out JFAT’s Facebook and Twitter pages to see what else they have that you may like your taste buds to tango with.

If one thing has remained unchanged throughout history, ice cream has held on as one of the most popular desserts for people around the world. Many people love ice cream and the many forms of it. Ice cream can come to us a la carte, on a cone, or in something else. What does something else mean? In the past decade or so, thanks to the advent of the internet and social media, people share their food with the rest of the world, and that has led to other people trying to create something fancy to show off. The Instagram culture means that one place would try to one-up others by delivering something that looks different or unique. As such, we have seen ice cream served in almost every imaginable way possible, from churro ice cream sandwiches to ice cream donuts to ice cream burgers. This time, we can feast our eyes on ice cream inside croissants at Churned Creamery.

Churned Creamery aims to make their mark in the ice cream business in Orange County with their creative take on serving up everyone’s favorite dessert, ice cream. Churned Creamery opened their first location in Tustin but should have seven locations open in Southern California by the end of the year. So what makes Churned Creamery stand out among all the other ice cream places in Southern California? While other places may give you something like a donut or a churro with your ice cream, Churned Creamery will give you your ice cream inside a croissant. Has anyone else done this yet? Perhaps. However, this combination remains relatively unknown to the public, and Churned Creamery has taken a step forward in getting croissant ice cream sandwiches into the limelight. They will do so by opening up more locations, such as the Cypress location that had its grand opening this past Saturday. At the grand opening, the first 200 customers received a free CroCream (Churned Creamery’s name for the croissant ice cream sandwich), a Churned Creamery tote bag, and a raffle ticket to win an iPad.

At the time of this post, Churned Creamery has four locations open, with a fifth location opening this Saturday in Irvine. According to their website, two more locations should open up sometime afterwards. Keep up with what Churned Creamery has opening up by liking them on Facebook and following them on Twitter.

When it comes to adding flavor to foods, nothing can boss the sauce. At its base, sauce contains sugar, salt, pepper, or any combination of those plus additional ingredients. Some foods contain flavor within itself, such as meats that have seasonings and herbs that help bring out the meat’s natural flavor. Most of the time, people add sauces or condiments to their foods to add flavor. For the most part, sauces bring a sweet component to the table, such as ketchup, barbecue sauce, steak sauce, or teriyaki sauce. Many other sauces can add flavor components from sour to salty to spicy and more. However, when it comes to enhancing the flavors of the original dish, nothing can beat hot sauce. The capsaicin in hot sauces helps to open up our taste buds, allowing us to detect and absorb more flavors. For those that cannot take the heat, just a little bit helps to greatly enhance the flavor of the dish, something you can do at Slide Bar as of this week.

Downtown Fullerton has its fair share of restaurants, and businesses come and go every year. However, Slide Bar has endured the test of time. While some smaller restaurants may not make it past the first year, the Slide Bar has never relented. During the early years of the Slide Bar, most locals viewed the Slide Bar as a bar and concert lounge, a place to spend weekend nights at. Around 2014, the folks at the Slide Bar conducted an overhaul of their kitchen and started serving up better food. Sure they maintained themselves as a bar and concert lounge, but at least now one can consider the Slide Bar as a destination for lunch and/or dinner, where they can snag something such as the Cali Bandito Tacos. Essentially a California Burrito in taco form, this order of tacos comes with three made-to-order corn tortillas, each filled with carne asada marinated in Gringo Bandito hot sauce, French fries, cheddar cheese, an avocado slice, and sour cream. These three tacos come with a side of tortilla chips and a bean dip. These tacos have just the right amount of spiciness to not overwhelm your palate, but still give enough kick to allow you to fully enjoy the natural flavor of the carne asada.

The Slide Bar does more than just host bands and sling drinks – they have a full kitchen with a menu worth checking out. Check out what they have cooking up in their kitchen by liking them on Facebook and following them on Twitter.

In every city lies hidden gems of all types. These hidden gems can range from local businesses to landmarks and more. Some hidden gems remain largely undiscovered by the masses for quite some time, while some hidden gems get talked about a lot. When a hidden gem gets talked about enough times, it soon grows in popularity and eventually no longer fits the “hidden gem” category. For some hidden gems, they lie in a good balance of having the locals know about it versus spreading the word out about it. However, a problem soon arises of knowing when to talk about the hidden gem and who to tell about it. Should that hidden gem remain hidden or not? In some cases, it helps to spread the word out to get others to discover something new, such as Uncle Henry’s Deli in Downey.

Downey’s Uncle Henry’s Deli represents a rare craft beer haven in an area otherwise lacking in local beer. For many years, the region from Lakewood to Monterey Park enclosed by the 605 and 710 freeways represented the middle grounds between Downtown Los Angeles and Orange County. This area did not have any significant craft beer locations, mainly due to lack of spots for locals to hang out. However, Uncle Henry’s Deli wants to change that by acting as the spot for locals to enjoy a nice cold one. Family owned and operated since 1959, Uncle Henry’s Deli humbly boasts traditional yet delicious deli sandwiches along with a massive selection of rotating craft beers. On the deli side, they have all the typical deli meats and cheeses that they utilize in their hot and cold sandwiches. Most sandwiches come in three sizes based on how much meat you get: 5oz, 7oz, and 10oz, the latter costing almost twice as much as a 5oz sandwich. On the bar side, the craft beer mecca awaits. Uncle Henry’s Deli proudly offers over a hundred rotating beer taps, as well as over 90 different bottle varieties at any given time. One cannot go wrong with choice here at Uncle Henry’s Deli, as they have a style suitable for just about anyone.

If you find yourself equidistant from Downtown LA and Orange County, make a pit stop at Uncle Henry’s Deli up in the northern side of Downey. Check out Uncle Henry’s Deli’s food specials and beer offerings by liking them on Facebook and following them on Twitter.
