...looking for suggestings for an excellent chicken bowl somewhere in the valley/glendale/los feliz/hollywood area.
It seems to be there ought to be a chicken bowl with succulent (dark meat?) chicken, sauce that's tasty but not overwhelming or gloppy, fragrant, substantial rice and some sort of tasty and plentiful vegetables (shredded cabbage salad is nice, other plump veggies are also okay!). Sesame seeds or other flavor add-ons would be a plus.
Or, something really interesting and different.
All I seem to find is the opposite of what I just described. Even the oft-recommended Yaki bowl seems to me to have dull chicken, gloppy oversweet sauce, and droopy, watery vegetables.
