Howlin's Ray's has landed a new, permanent home inside the heart of Chinatown, at Far East Plaza where the likes of Chego, Ramen Champ, and Pok Pok Phat Thai already reside. The Nashville-style hot chicken truck had been without a planned storefront after canceling its residency at the former Littlefork space in Hollywood.

Instead owners Johnny Zone and Amanda Chapman are taking their talents to Chinatown, where they'll join the ranks of a bevy of new school vendors that are revitalizing the area. They're looking to open by Chinese New Year, which falls on February 8, 2016.

Just last night, Howlin' Ray's popped up in Chinatown only to sell out in about thirty minutes because of swift demand. The Nashville-style hot chicken shop started as a truck for a few months, garnering positive widespread reception for its flavorful, and oftentimes ultra-spicy fried chicken. They also unleashed a fried chicken sandwich, which gained critical praise.

Notable Chinatown openings this year include Pok Pok LABurgerlords, and Endorffeine.
