One of L.A.’s best new Korean restaurants is giving us a new pop-up, too. On August 1, Hanchic is rolling out its second pop-up from Chimmelier: a Korean fried chicken sandwich concept where the crispy-bird gets topped with a spicy pickled slaw, lacto-fermented oiji (pickles), dashi mayo and a perilla leaf.
There’ll be more than fried chicken from the Hanchic team, too—look for sides such as chapsal cheese balls, a set of cheesy, sweet glutinous rice balls; spiced potato jeon, a sort of mashed tater tot with Korean-spice seasoning and kimchi thousand island; and oiji, Hanchic’s lacto-fermented pickle with black pepper, bayleaf and garlic. There’ll be plenty of sauces to choose from, too, because after all, this is KFC (Korean fried chicken).
This time around, you’ll find Chimmelier at Downtown’s HiDef Brewing (1203 S Olive St). The pop-up begins at 2pm and runs until they sell out—so get there early.
