Hrazdan Chicken in Whittier!!! Yum!!!

I just got back from eating at Hrazdan Chicken in Whittier. I'm so glad I went. This place has really great food. It's a hole in the wall place run by an Armenian family, tonight the parents and son were there. Very, very nice friendly people. The place was busy with people wanting take out and every one seemed to be regulars, with the "mom" knowing just what some of the people wanted even before they ordered. My husband said it was just like a lot of places he went to in Europe. Small, family run, a little run down and old looking. There's only about 4 tables in the small restaurant. I decided to have a half chicken plate. You can watch the chickens as they are roasted over the flame and it smelled wonderful so I had to have it. The chicken was very moist and flavorful and the skin (my favorite part) was very tasty and crunchy and moist. The rice that came with it was very good as well. I don't normally like rice but the creaminess and the way they seasoned it with something I couldn't put my finger on made me love it. Also with the plate came hummus, tomatoes, pickled turnips and pita bread. The absolute star of the show though was the garlic sauce. I ended up buying some to take home. It is absolutely addicting, pure garlic flavor but really creamy and lickable. I put it on my pita and my chicken. I think tomorrow night it'll go really well with the spaghetti carbonara I was planning on making. I'll definitely be going back there. I saw a gyro pita somebody was taking home and that looked so good, it'll be my next order there!!!
