The old Open Door location in Monterey Park, is now Tokyo Fried Chicken Co. After five years of Open Door, owner and chef, Kouji Yamanashi is excited to launch TFCC — a secret recipe that took two years to perfect. Imagine, southern comfort food with Japanese inspired flavors. Set to open this Labor Day weekend, BYB has your sneak peak:
Here’s the scoop direct from the press release:
“TFCC offers their house recipe’s deep fried chicken with over 10 freshly made sides including: curry creamed corn, dashi braised collard greens, soy glazed carrtos with bacon and more. Plus with homemade spicy and regular ponzo for some fried chicken dipping goodness.
The fried chicken is brined similar to a Japanese karaage chicken – soy, ginger, and garlic but has rich crispness for a deep fried yet juicy chicken. The chicken is fried in rice bran oil for a light and less greasy, more flavorful taste.”
They’ll offer a wide selection of local craft beers including local L.A.breweries: Eagle Rock Brewery and Golden Road, the OC based: Bootleggers, The Bruery and from SD: Coronado and Lightning. Japanese imports include the craft beers; Echigo, Hitachino and Yona Yona.
While there, you might notice the trendy Hedley and Bennett aprons (below) and artsy sign work hand-painted by Peter Greco (above).
Grand Opening is Labor Day weekend August 30th! Save the date!
