You’ll likely show up late and find yourself walking under a glass garage door towards the back of the particularly chipper front café. You’ll then be in a narrow hallway decorated with chicken-themed things.
It’ll all start to make sense once you discover that they’ll be serving 24-hour brined, twice-fried Korean chicken along with sides like honey butter bao biscuits and chicken fat chicharrones in there.
Then, when you’re damn good and ready, you’ll head back up front to eat those things, along with some Strauss soft-serve ice cream that can be topped with boba and housemade mochi.
When you’re damn good and ready, though. Can’t stress that enough.
