A master of fried chicken, Todd Richards keeps bellies happy with fried hot chicken sandwiches at his Krog Street Market stall. When he’s not at Richards’ Southern Fried, he’s at White Oak Kitchen on Peachtree Street, so his recreational time is a little tight. He lives near work and likes to go to restaurants in the same area when he’s free.
Favorite restaurant: Miso Izakaya, Old Fourth Ward
Favorite dish: I’ve eaten just about everything on the menu, so it’s hard to pick. But I love the KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) and duck buns. The KFC is crispy with soy and scallions, and the duck is pulled with hoisin sauce.
