Downtown, Los Angeles – Grab your eatin’ pants, Mother Cluckers! The good ol’ boys Partners Joshua Kopel and Executive Chef Sammy Monsour from South City Fried Chicken welcome guests to come experience the latest additions to the coop, which include New South City Fried Chicken Buckets, Boxes and Booze!
Implementing the vast repertoire of regional techniques and variations acquired throughout his life and travels, Partner and Executive Chef Sammy Monsour honors the rich tapestry of the people that make up the South while consistently maintaining the highest of standards in execution and preparation. Everything on the South City Fried Chicken menu is prepared to order, maintaining chef-driven quality with a farm-to-table concept utilizing the same local vendors as big sister restaurant, Preux & Proper. From the house-made pepper mixes and sauces, the use of Jidori chicken, an artisan approach to poultry farming, to the brioche buns from La Brea Bakery on the delectable Fried Chicken Sandwiches; no detail is too small to ignore.
So, get your cluck on with the all New South City Fried Chicken Boxes, which are sharable boxes of Fried Chicken that are even more delightful to eat! A mindful operation with meticulous attention to flavor, every piece of Fried Chicken begins with succulent Jidori chicken in a buttermilk brine and marinade for a minimum of 24 hours. When ready, the chicken is then dredged in the “stay crispy batter” before getting fried to perfection. The addition of the New South City Fried Chicken Boxes begins with the Chicken & Biscuit Box, comprised of four Low-Country seasoned chicken tenders or whole wings, along with a fluffy Cathead Buttermilk Biscuit made fresh in-house, then accompanied by a delicious Avocado Ranch and tangy Carolina Gold sauce to dunk and dip. Also, included in the New South City Fried Chicken Boxes are South City Fries, which are hand-cut skin-on Kennebec potatoes that are first blanched, then fried twice to secure a crispy exterior, and then seasoned with Low-Country boil spice and Chesapeake Bay style red remoulade. For a heap of sweet and savory, there is the Chicken & Waffles Box which is an ode to L.A.’s Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles, featuring a cinnamon-sugar spice blend that hits four succulent chicken tenders or whole wings straight out of the fryer, and is then accompanied by two made-to-order crispy cornbread waffles, whipped butter and Vermont maple syrup. Next, head on a road trip with the Nashville Hot Box, where guests can crank up the heat on four chicken tenders or whole chicken wings, with a choice of the Hot, XXX, Reaper, Hellfire or CBD Sauce, along with cookout slaw, house pickles and Avocado Ranch. Go South and pick-up the New Orleans Box, featuring four Cajun spiced chicken tenders or whole wings served with a fluffy Cathead Buttermilk Biscuit, Cajun Fries, Mike’s Hot Honey and Louisiana Hot Sauce. Did someone say hot damn?!
Prepared for two to three hungry guests, each NEW South City Fried Chicken Bucket comes with a choice of sixteen whole wings or chicken tenders, along with a choice of seasoning including the Low-Country, a house signature blend of herbs and spices, the Cajun Spice, Jamaican Jerk or the Memphis Rib Rub. Every New South City Fried Chicken Bucket is also served with a choice of five dipping sauces including the Carolina Gold BBQ, Avocado Ranch, Red Remoulade, Mike’s Hot Honey and Sir Kensington’s Ketchup. There is also an optional “Treat Yo Self” upgrade that includes two Handmade Buttermilk Biscuits, Fries, Cookout Slaw, and House Pickles.
Not feeling the fowl? No problem as South City Fried Chicken now has you covered with three equally NEW delicious items that are most definitely “Not” Fried Chicken, starting with the Ham & Egg Biscuit, comprised of a handmade buttermilk biscuit, crispy Tar Heel country ham, fried Chino Valley egg and whipped butter. Alternatively, guests can sink their teeth into two vegetarian friendly options, beginning with the Cold BBQ Jack Fruit Sando, featuring pomegranate habanero BBQ, cookout slaw, cilantro, lime and jalapeño, or the New “Chicken Fried” Impossible Burger, a veggie burger so mouthwateringly delicious and adorned with baby iceberg, heirloom tomato, red remoulade, house pickles and cookout slaw. Any one of these meals would love the company of a side of Fried Pickles, featuring South City Garlicky-Dill Pickles deep-fried in a cornmeal crust and served with Pop’s Remoulade.
Do not forget to compliment all of this finger lickin’ savory with some delectable sweetness by enjoying South City Fried Chicken’s New Chocolate Shake made of stoneground Mexican chocolate and extra fancy whipped cream.
