L.A.: The Chicken Lab Popup at Tasty Food

  • tasty food 8150 Garvey Ave #117c Rosemead, CA

Come by Tasty Food in Rosemead for a ONE NIGHT ONLY fried chicken sandwich popup in LA. We'll be serving the sandwich that Bloomberg News called "perfect". Extra-crunchy, extra-moist, a little bit sweet, and a little bit spicy.

We'll also be selling and signing books at the event, or if you already have a copy, bring it in and I'll be happy to sign it and chat with you!

RSVP by with the phrase "Tasty Fried Chicken!" to the Facebook event listing, and get 15% off of your book purchases at the event!
