Chicken on Fire

Returning to Chicken on Fire is like reconnecting with long-lost friends. After a few seconds to get reacquainted, it's like time never passed.

I was in the SoRo area (South Robertson and Olympic to be specific) after an appointment, and it was food time. The memory of Chicken on Fire was sizzling in my synapses, and I just had to go. I walked into the vaguely familiar place and took a looksie at the menu. My eyes darted for the pineapple fried rice, and I was home!

Many years ago, I worked in Century City and had friends who lived near the SoRo area. The four of us were at Chicken on Fire all the time. Sometimes we'd pick up food there to serve at parties, or we'd try to recreate the yummiest dishes. This pineapple fried rice with chicken was my personal favorite. Delicious! Although it wasn't as much fun devouring the entire plate by my lonesome, I took one for the team then e-mailed the former gang about my lunch "date." Luckily, we stay connected even though we're scattered about the country now. It was great fun to relive old times with them courtesy of Chicken on Fire!

Parking is a little wonky with the 7-11 sharing the lot, but it's well worth the effort.
