With all the fame and fortune Ludo Lefebvre has recently garnered, he decided to splurge and buy a car. Well, a truck to be exact. And thousands of foodies, bloggers, and socialites have waited in infamous 2 hour lines to try the one Ludobites dish that has stood out and could easily be converted to street food...the Fried Chicken.
The truck was going to be at the Dodgers Stadium Flea Market on July 18th at 9AM, so I felt I had a good chance to catch it with a short line. After the $5 entrance fee to the market, there were roughly 15 other trucks and a 30 second wait at Ludo Bites.
$7 Ludo's Signature Fried Chicken (3)
2 pieces with piquillo sauce and honey mustard sauce. First, the chicken 'nuggets' were tiny for $7. Second, The batter was similar to Chile's Chicken Crispers (it's an insult). Third, The piquillo sauce was reminiscent of ketchup and I don't put ketchup on my chicken. The honey mustard was reminiscent of Ralph's, you could get this anywhere. The seasoning was very light, about the only good thing was the use of dark meat lent to a tender finished product. This is not the Ludo Fried chicken at Breadbar that we have all fell in love with.
For a $1 extra, we got a honey-lavender biscuit (7)
The biscuit was well worth the money and I could see this being a side to a Ludo Bites dish. Sweet and rich denseness to it.
