Yes, Chicken and Rice has made it to LA! Mike managed to hunt down the truck tonight on his way home, and brought home a chicken plate and a lamb plate as a surprise. You’re the best, Mikey.
The verdict? Pretty good! I’m impressed, given that there were a lot of disappointed reviews on Yelp saying it didn’t compare with the NYC original. Yes, it’s not exactly the same, but it’s still very tasty. The white sauce is especially good. And it’s kind of a nice twist with the ground chicken.
Mike said the truck was really hard to find, unfortunately – hopefully they work that out soon so they can get more business!
