On a more positive note, Larri and I went to KJ’s. I know Don and Mitchell raved about this place particularly the quantity. Well, not just the quantity: Don told me that he preferred their fried chicken to Zippy’s. Really? Well, after trying their fried chicken, I might agree with him. The skin is super crisp, not all battery and the meat is flavorful. As for the quantity, the chicken plate ($6) comes with six thighs! That’s unbelieveable.

The place also seems to have a mainland approach, similar to Bear’s. In addition to “macaroni” salad–actually, it’s a spaghetti salad with tuna–you can get corn or green beans. I like that option and went with the green beans.

I didn’t get the fried chicken plate, but a mix of kal-bi and Korean chicken (little drummettes). They were just OK. Larri got the stuffed cabbage and fried chicken. The stuffed cabbage came with a beef and rice filling. It was solid. The next time we’re going to picnic on the Windward side, we’ll have to bring some KJ’s fried chicken.

    Mitchell raved about their furikake chicken, and I had the opportunity to try this recently. I’m sad to report that I didn’t care for it. It was basically panko fried boneless chicken in a shoyu based sauce. It was super sweet, tangy and salty–so much so that I didn’t finish eating the whole thing. (Larri said she kinda liked it, although she only took one bite.)

    There’s no accounting for taste. 🙂
