Plus more hot chicken (still), and love for Langer’s
The long goodbye
Sad days are ahead for fans of Yen Ching restaurant in Orange. The OC Register reports that the restaurant will be closing its doors on New Years Eve, ending an almost 40-year run for the iconic spot. Yen Ching has been known for decades to critics and regular diners alike as a spot for vintage Chinese-American cuisine, served with a smile inside a Googie-style A-frame cafe space. On Facebook, ownership says that “we have decided that the time for retirement has come.”
Shake Shack opens in Burbank today. The popular chain lands at 200 N. San Fernando Road, and is donating 25% of today’s proceeds to the mental healthy non-profit Bring Change to Mind.
And more burgers

Angrier and angrier
The Dave’s Hot Chicken knock-offs just keep coming. The latest is Angry Birdz, another red-and-white Nashville-style hot chicken outlet that opened just a couple of weeks ago in a small storefront a block away from the original Dave’s parking lot setup.
