Fried Chicken, Harold’s Chicken Shack

When this Chicago transplant branched out West, it brought not only its insanely crunchy fried chicken but also its curious chicken-ordering lingo. You’ll hear seasoned professionals asking for “mild sauce on,” meaning “I’d like sweet barbecue sauce drizzled all over my chicken and a bed of french fries and white bread underneath it.” Those really in the know ask for “mild sauce on, hot sauce on the side,” for that perfect combination of crunchy, sweet, salty and spicy.

Gyoza, Monta

This bustling noodle shop’s gyoza, or hand-made dumplings, take a little extra time, so when you order, the waitress will immediately shout over your shoulder to the kitchen that you’d like some. The gyoza are made in-house daily with pork and vegetables, then pan-fried for a nice crust on the outside. Make your own dipping sauce from the accoutrements in front of you: soy sauce, a little vinegar and a little chili oil or shichimi seven spice. $5, 5030 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 6, 367-4600.
