Fuku now serves fried chicken at Kitchen United Mix on Third Street Promenade
By Dolores Quintana
Fuku, the spicy fried chicken restaurant created by chef David Chang, opened in the Third Street Promenade food court just before the pandemic hit. After most businesses closed, most restaurants in the area did not reopen and some closed permanently. Fuku is back as Eater Los Angeles reports. You can order your choice of spicy chicken sandos and impossible chicken and fingers from a number of delivery and ghost cooking options. At Third Street Promenade, you can order through Kitchen United Mix from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. At the West Hollywood location, you have your choice of services to order for pickup or delivery: DoorDash, Grubhub, Postmates, or UberEats. All services can be accessed on the Fuku order page here and the WeHo location at 444 ½ La Cienega is open from 5:00 p.m. to midnight or 1:00 a.m. depending on delivery service hours.
All sandos are made with white meat chicken, brined in Habanero, on a Martin’s potato roll. The Knockout Sando comes with Seasoned Cabbage and Knockout Sauce, the Spicy Fried Sando comes with Fuku Mayo and Pickles, the Sweet and Spicy Sando comes with Sweet + Spicy Glaze and, yes, pickles, the Chicken Bacon Ranch Sando is the brined Habanero brisket with Ranch dressing, crispy bacon and pickles. Chicken fingers are available in a choice of regular and sweet and spicy, with the option of Impossible branded nuggets with the added spices and Fuku sauce. The sides are waffle fries and waffle hash browns. For dessert, Fuku offers cookies, including a double chocolate vegan cookie, pints of Sunny Day ice cream in six different flavors, and Sweet Street brand cookies in four different varieties.
Eater Los Angeles reported that Chang, who rose to fame for founding Momfuku in New York, would partner with Family Style Kitchens’ shadow kitchen operation to expand even further than the delivery options already offered in d other areas like Anaheim and San Diego in the future.
