Discovered a new Japanese restaurant in the Edmonds area the other day and ordered this ‘Soy chicken karaage donburi’ (cause it was one of those guilty pleasure days which I just felt like having fried chicken). The chicken was moist on the inside. However, disappointed 😔 the outside skin was soggy (which apparently was like that according to the waitress. Never in my eating career have I had soggy chicken karaage.) But kudos to their excellent service 👍🏼, without asking the kitchen made me the crispy version of their appie chicken karaage. (SCROLL TO THE ➡️) And that was DELICIOUS! 👌🏼 HINT: Be sure to ask for their crispy version of karaage or you might get the soggy kind! 😂
Ayam Lejen's top 5 fried chicken(because I forgot to take pictures of the rest). I think my favourites are myBurgerlab(that's a given since it's a mini Ultraman burger), G.A.K(Gerai Ah Kow), Broasted Chicken King and Khora Khora Johor. - myBurgerlab as usual never fails me. Delicious chicken patty with awesome salted egg flavours, yum!
- G.A.K has the mild horlicks taste yet pretty good. Came with sauces which I didn't try. I had to "tapau" this cuz I was too full. It might of tasted better when its freshly cooked on the spot though.
- Broasted Chicken King is crispy and as my friend described, almost felt like a pork knuckle.
- Khora Khora Johor, very crispy skin and taste alright but when you mix with the sambal, it taste pretty good! It makes sense cuz it's a Nasi Lemak's chicken so it needs to go with something!
Sometimes you make a plan, but the high winds and the NYC subways change them, and you end up with a warm plate topped with a scallion waffle and fried chicken 🐔 #piñathefoodthief @bierocracy

Brunch at @chefvargas_ep. 👌👌👌👍👍👍 Eggs Rancheros / All American Burger / Chicken and Waffles
You'll inevitably complain about how far this is or about how you think you are lost when you get here, but it is well worth the effort!
Huevos rancheros dish is among the best ones in the city. Crisp potatoes without excess oil, gooey melted cheese that unites with a mild salsa egg yolk combination, over a base of home fried tortilla chips. Guac is delicious: fresh with ingredients that shine. Despite being a large dish, it feels light because of cohesive nature.
Chicken & Waffles also very good. It is actually larger than it looks in pictures. Juicy fried chicken with a moderate amount of maple syrup so that it isn't cloying. And waffles with toasted notes, mild chew, and satisfying crunch.
Burger is simple but executed at a high level. Quality meats blend, good charring, medium (as requested) interior. Well toasted brioche with very reserved sweetness. Cheese with thorough melt and well sourced vegetables. Fries are serviceable (prefer thicker cut variety and these exhibited some limpness). Prices couldn't be better, service is expedient and good natured. Will be back for quite a few of the remaining items.
