Living Lei Chic: Power Crunch Fried Chicken

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Fried chicken. Just the name conjures up images of crunchy skin, juicy meat, and sudden craving for lunch. So it was a tough job when HONOLULU Magazine editors decided to find the best version for their Best of HONOLULU list.

Lei Chic's Christi Young, HONOLULU Food Editor Martha Cheng, and some guy from Sunrise who wanted to tag along, checked out the pick for 2012 - Ray's Café in Kalihi.

The humble looking restaurant is easy to miss driving down King Street. Inside, you'll find just a few basic old school tables and chairs. The owner and chef Felix says there are no secrets to his mouth-watering chicken, he just cooks it the way he does.

What sold the HONOLULU Magazine staff - the crispy skin you could hear people crunching into from across the office.

Ray's Café is located at 2033 North King St. Call 841-2771.
