This is the third in our series of Korean Fried Chicken (KFC) Joints. Chicken Day is a new fried chicken outlet at the corner of Third and Western (right next to Choice Meats) with another shop in either La Crescenta or La Canada (they seem to use the names interchangeably).
If you've read the first two parts of our series, you know the drill: whole chicken cut in chunks with either a soy/garlic sauce or a hot sauce, sometimes with a no-sauce option, served with a side of pickeld radishes.
Unfortunately, Chicken Day doesn't measure up to KyoChon or BonChon. The chicken had a thicker batter and had more the taste of traditional fast food fried chicken (i.e. the other KFC). The Teriyaki sauce chicken was definitely the best of the three flavors, but it had a strange sort of breading on it and the flavor was not very intense. The spicy sauce was a thick, sticky goo that seemed to mostly be composed of ketchup...it left a bad taste in my mouth.
I didn't find much to like about Chicken Day. Lucky for us, it's only one of many neighborhood chicken choices.
