A 42-year-old man was arrested Saturday night after he allegedly stole fried chicken and a piece of cheesecake at a Vons supermarket because he didn't want to wait in a long line, police said. Officers stopped Corey Young at Los Feliz and San Fernando roads after they found him fleeing the Vons, according to Glendale police. Young, who police said is on probation armed-robbery, told officers he grew impatient while waiting to pay for his chicken and cheesecake, and decided to walk out of the store, police said.

Korea-based Kyochon Chicken is set to bring its southeast Asian flair to the Glendale Galleria Food Court later this week. Founded in Korea in 1991, the restaurant is the brainchild of Kyochon Chicken Chief Executive Won Kwon. There are 54 stores throughout Korea. According to Director of Operations Alexandria Yoo, Kwon’s chicken was so popular, he couldn’t keep up with demand for new store locations. “He came to the United States in 2007,” Yoo said.

Annie Bettelli GLENDALE -- The Broadway Bar & Grill is the ambitious, new restaurant in town with hopes of breathing new life into The Exchange shopping area. Broadway refers to the theater district in New York City. The look of the menu is reminiscent of Broadway's classic yellow, black and white theater program Playbill, and the dining room has an urban ambience, starkly decorated with a smattering of framed theater posters on beige walls with wood accents.

Tucked away in the Briggs Plaza on Foothill Boulevard is the recently opened Chicken Day restaurant. The menu is posted over the counter — well, at least, we assumed it was the menu, since the text was all in Korean. Fortunately for us, the restaurant happily provided a one-page menu with English translation, allowing us to order using something other than the “point and grin” method that we’ve perfected on our international travels. The young lady behind the counter also took the time to patiently and clearly explain the menu options.

The only thing better than slow-cooked spare ribs slathered in BBQ sauce are spare ribs slathered in sauce with a side of rhythm and blues. That's just what you get at Big Mama's Rib Shack in Pasadena twice a week. From 6:30-8:30 on Tuesday nights and 6:30-9 on Saturdays, local musicians set up their gear in the middle of the restaurant and serve up some saucy jazz, blues, rock and soul to go along with Big Mama's Cajun and Creole fixin's. It's a Mardi Gras atmosphere as diners laugh out loud and lick their fingers clean before applauding.

Lucy’s Pizza Corner was full of surprises. Its Burbank Boulevard location is not in the best Burbank neighborhood — it is attached to a liquor store and its overhead sign says, “Al Forno.” Furthermore, it has no web presence. If you Google it, you only get an address, phone number and basic information. Google “Burbank pizza places,” and you get nothing. I wasn’t holding out much hope for the quality of the food. But that turned out to be my final surprise.

Tucked on a corner in Eagle Rock, across a side street from a pink diner with its own towering billboard, the brown bungalow doesn't look like much. Its roof is beginning to tatter, there's nearly no parking, and the few tables outside are made from old doors painted and put on their sides in one last stop before the scrap yard. (Actually a nice, colorful touch.) Larkin's, which bills itself as “a contemporary soul food joint,” is like visiting Grandma's house, with its scuffed wood floors and cozy rooms and big windows, and its smells of cornbread and frying chicken.

It's comforting as you're waiting for the pupusas you just ordered at a neighborhood Salvadoran joint to hear the slap, slap, slap of hands smacking masa into fat, tortilla-shaped discs. Your mouth starts watering, knowing the corn dough is being patted around the savory filling, and about to be tossed onto a sizzling griddle. At Pupuseria del Valle, customers stream in on Tuesdays and Fridays for the $1 pupusas. Though, really, at less than two bucks on a regular day, the price is still right.

If given the choice between a fancy gourmet dinner and home-style cooking, every U.S. president from George Washington to George W. Bush has preferred the latter. Meatloaf with mashed potatoes, turkey with gravy and baked chicken with hot rolls have been presidential favorites for years. Even culinary master Thomas Jefferson had to indulge in his favorite, fried chicken. Fortunately, you do not have to take the oath of office to admit that you prefer classic home-style cooking.
