Hounds looking for fried chicken to go in the East Bay can choose between the traditional soul food version and Chinese style, which is usually just drumettes.

Scend’s and the thin-crusted chicken at Merritt Bakery are the top picks in the soul-food category, while shanghaikid has relied on Best Taste in years past for a drumette fix.

In San Francisco’s Chinatown, davidljam likes New Golden Daisy’s drumettes by the pound, while RiverGal58 goes for the seasoned ones at Tai Chi.
