Thai Town Now Has A Late-Night Hot Chicken Purveyor
Looking for something to fill up on before you hit the bars in Thai Town (Harvard & Stone, Jumbo's, we're looking at you)? How about something to settle with on your way back out of the aforementioned drinking dens? Well, you're in luck: Dave's Hot Chicken is now slinging, well, hot chicken nightly in a Hollywood Boulevard parking lot.
The pop-up does one thing and one thing only: Nashville-style chicken tenders (sorry, no full-birds, yet). As our friends over at Eater LA mention, patrons can choose either mild or hot heat levels for their chicken, which is then put between slices of white bread. Add a side of thick-cut fries and/or kale coleslaw for the complete package.
If the team's Instagram page is any indication, Dave's has been selling out almost nightly—which puts the prospects of a forthcoming food truck as likely. What's more, Dave's Hot Chicken only kicks off at 9 p.m., while Howlin' Rays closes at 4 p.m., so, all you hot chicken fiends around town should have no conflicts.

Dave's Hot Chicken is located at 5115 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, and is open from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily. The stall is currently cash only, and a meal is about $10.
