There’s something marvelous about biting into a massive turkey leg… until you realize the taste is just mediocre. 🍗
We’ve all been there, spending almost $20 dollars on a novelty meal that smells oh-so-good learning afterward that it tastes, ehhh.
The folks over at Loaded Legz, a restaurant located in Panorama City’s Plaza del Valle, find excitement in the popularity spike of carnival foods. The eatery houses only three stools at a wood counter, but most people order their legs to-go given that there is a communal courtyard nearby.
(Besides, who doesn’t want to flaunt looking like someone from Game of Thrones biting into a massive piece of poultry?)
Chef Keven Alan Lee (who goes by Cheven) and his sister Robyn wanted to deck out the “O.G.” turkey leg from Disneyland after catering one of their events. Picture Disney’s bland, salty version but smoked, steamed and covered with honey glaze, crunchy scallions or fragrant rosemary. Basically everything you remember as a child but 10x better!
A leg starts at $13 and is served in a variety of flavors including the Sticky Leg which is covered in honey chile butter, Aloha Leg which is lacquered with pineapple teriyaki sauce, and Buffalo Leg which is coated in Sriracha. They even have Loaded Chipz on the menu complete with addicting potato chips, pulled poultry, shallots, scallions, cilantro, and a tangy, savory, and spicy Parallel 30 BBQ sauce!
