Chicken & Rice Wire

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Midtown Lunch gives a pretty thorough first look of the two-week old Chicken & Rice truck, which hit Hollywood with a storm the week before the Grammy Awards. In a Q&A style format, Zach Brooks parses the minutiae of NYC street meat and compares it to the Hollywood version. He talks about everything from the meat to the rice to the signature white sauce. The verdict? "The meat still isn't cooked perfectly, and all the little flavor differences do add up. But overall it's pretty damn good and will likely get better as they iron out the kinks."
