Jesse Boy, a Korean fried chicken and Korean fried cauliflower restaurant that emerged from local farmers markets in Los Angeles, will celebrate the grand opening of its first location on Saturday, Jan. 26, from noon to 10 p.m.
The eatery will be offering free Jesse Big Boy Sliders for the first 100 guests, with a choice between chicken or veggie, as well as handing out prizes and giveaways every hour. Jesse Boy will also have a buy-one-get-one-free special on its food items all day.
A supporter of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Jesse Boy will dedicate its grand opening to CHLA and will donate 20 percent of the day’s proceeds to the hospital.
“We are so excited to have our very first restaurant and even more excited to have it here in Los Angeles. Being an L.A. native, it’s always been my dream to have a restaurant that not only makes awesome food and gives good service to our community but also gives back to the city that I’m from,” said Ajay Hira, Jesse Boy co-founder. “We look forward to the community joining us for our grand opening and supporting CHLA, a group that truly cares about kids.”
The Jesse Boy Crew prides themselves in having items on the menu for guests of all diets. The restaurant has options for vegans, non-vegans and vegetarians to enjoy. Along with Korean fried chicken (wings or tenders) and the vegan Korean fried cauliflower, Jesse Boy offers sides like jasmine rice, fries and sesame salad. Everything is made-to-order and the hand-crafted agua fresca is made daily with seasonal fruit.
Jesse Boy also offers catering and is open Monday through Sunday from 11 am to 10 pm.
Jesse Boy is located at 6254 Santa Monica Blvd. For information, visit jesseboyeats.com.
