Oakland, CA: Kimchi-Brined Fried Chicken Sandwiches at Pal's Takeaway!

  • Firebrand Artisan Breads 2343 Broadway Oakland, CA, 94612 United States (map)

My buddy Jeff Mason of Pal's Takeaway is helping me bring my kimchi-brined double-fried chicken sandwiches home next week.  Come by, grab a sandwich, get your book signed (there will also be signed books for sale), say hi, and have fun!

Due to limitations in cooking space, there is a limit of 200 sandwiches being sold, first come first serve (of course, if you do arrive after the chicken is over, Firebrand has plenty of tasty treats to keep you happy).

See you on Monday!
