Howlin' Ray's, Los Angeles, CA

Howlin' Ray's Restaurant Review

: Chef Johnny Zone and his wife, Amanda Chapman, previously with La Poubelle, found Nashville hot chicken so inspired that they launched a food truck that featured the dish. The couple retired their truck in order to open this eatery at Chinatown's Far East Plaza. Get angry bird on the bone at spice levels from "country fried" (mild) to "howlin' hot" (incendiary). Sides include pimento cheese mac salad and crinkle-cut French fries. They also have a hot chicken sandwich with chicken breast, slaw, pickles and spicy Southern spread. New dishes include chicken and waffles and the Skinny Jimmy boneless breast.
