The za’atar-sprinkled Palestinian fried chicken at Al Aseel on Richmond is top-notch, but don't forget to try the grilled version as well—both are equally tasty. At dinner, there are bound to be oldsters puffing shisha and conversing with a Jordanian server. There are music videos on a flatscreen TV to dress up the otherwise utilitarian dining room. But most importantly, there is fried chicken. Halal fried chicken isn’t easy to come by. But fried chicken this good is even harder to find, no matter how it was slaughtered.
