Just off Sawtelle - on La Grange behind the shabu shabu spot Mizu 212 - is a tiny window where you can order some very good Japanese fried chicken. They’ve got a small menu of other things like Japanese-style hot dogs and a couple of burgers, but you’re really here for the fried karaage chicken. Get it with rice and your choice of dipping sauce (the sriracha aioli is the way to go) and grab one of the few seats out front for a quick and easy lunch.
