I remember walking past Honey's Kettle in 2000 when they first opened and smelling the hand-dipped chicken frying in 100% peanut oil. Made from scratch, the chicken always called my name, but whomever
I happened to be with always said, "Are you kidding me? Fried chicken? Too fattening!" Unfortunately, we probably moved on to some salad joint where we doused our greens in tons of dressing and called that a low-cal meal. Anyway, I'm no longer friends with
those friends and now eat fried chicken whenever I damn well please. Honey's Kettle Master Chef, Vincent Williams, has been frying up golden brown chicken for over 40 years and is clearly a master at his craft. Chicken is moist, juicy, and incredibly
tender on the inside with a perfectly seasoned crackling, crispy outside. Dip it into the fresh, organic local honey and you'll be in heaven. Sides are delicious too. French fries are crisp and hot and hand mashed potatoes are chunky and full of
flavor. But the biscuits! Lightly crunchy on the outside and warm and fluffy on the inside; it was the perfect pairing. You can even buy a package of buttermilk biscuit mix on the way out! Classic Meals start at $9.25 for a 2 piece basket with Kettle
fries, biscuits, and sweet pickles, $10.50 for 3 pieces, and $11.50 for 4 pieces. The Ice-Shaker Lemonade ($3.85) is not to be missed either! Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken 9537 Culver Blvd. Culver City Downtown Culver City (310) 202-5453 Hours: Sunday-Thursday:
