Fried Chicken With a Cult Following Arrives in the Tenderloin

Eater - 01-11


International fried chicken chain Krispy Krunchy Chicken has opened its third San Francisco shop, bringing Cajun-style fried chicken, honey butter biscuits, and mac ‘n’ cheese to the Tenderloin. It takes over the former Tender Loving Food space at 393 Eddy Street — the spacious, standalone restaurant is a rarity for Krispy Krunchy, which started in 1989 in Louisiana as a way to boost profits in convenience stores and gas stations. (You can also hunt down Krispy Krunchy’s popular fried chicken in such locations in the Mission and Bayview.) It’s earned praise from everyone from SF Weekly to Thrillist to even Luke Tsai.
