Hello and welcome to the first installment The Quest For the Best Damn Chicken in LA
Today I went to Romero’s Rotisserie Chicken n Donuts.
it’s at 611 N Virgil Ave in “Silver Lake”
but it’s really Wilshire Center right near the 101 next to Royal Laundramat.
Look for the super bright yellow building with the picture of a chicken holding a pink donut
They’ve got a wood-fired chicken thing going on. Mesquite. You can see the wood by the laundramat.
And because we live in America, theres donuts, pastries, croisants and danishes sitting right there for ya.
Romero’s supports Hollywood High, which is nice but weird, since there’s about 5 schools closer to them
Including the super freaky looking Camino Nuevo Charter Academy in the middle of the road
they have two tvs including a big screen in the back. they serve Coke and Pepsi. (nearby KFC only serves pepsi.)
on Tuesdays tacos are just a buck so you could literally pay in change.
you can sit out front where the action is or in the back and watch the aforementioned big screen.
i had the half chicken, spanish rice and potato salad.
the salsa was mild and flavorful and the chicken was moist
but the skin was the best. tasty, almost crispy somehow.
the potato salad was also very good. the dude said it was his wifes recipe.
isnt that what you want, people
it’s what i want.
very happy to start the ball rolling with Romero’s Rotisserie Chicken n Donuts
i did not eat a donut because im watching my weight
