LAist is going on a delicious spree from A to Z, and it's been a while, we almost forgot where we left off. This week, we are on H as we wait. Wait. Wait for a lunch of fried chicken at Honey's Kettle Fried Chicken in Culver City.

12:45-ish.
Honey’s Kettle Fried Chicken is just a few blocks from the office on Washington Boulevard in the new renaissance area of Culver City’s downtown. We left our office a bit later just to let the usual lunch surge at area restaurants subside, then walked there.

Just before 1:00-ish.
It didn’t require much will power to avoid diet-death Honey’s Kettle for as long as we did. Honey’s Kettle was one of many in a strange stream of restaurant fires last spring. There’s a cute display in the show window out front with home-y things like a rocking chair and a board game. If you wanted to really feel like you were eating down-home cooking, you could look at the window, but you’d still have to use your imagination. It's just a window. We walked through the door, under the copper sign with a fat copper kettle.
