I had always shunned the Louisiana Fried Chicken place on Broadway just south of Grand in Oakland after the first awful experience (dry, cement-like coating on tasteless chicken and terrible sides). After several others, including J. Leff, tried it, I still clung to my opinion.
A few weeks ago, though, we were tired and cranky and didn't want to take much trouble to get dinner. We drove by LFC and decided to try once more.
It was quite good. The chicken, I mean. The sides, except for the sweet potato (which was reallllly sweet but pretty good) were still pretty bad. The chicken was moist and the coating was crispy and spicy. Not at all like the first time.
So, in a rare show of maturity, I decided to eat crow and post this report. Well, actually, to eat chicken and post this report.
