Minit Stop

Fried chicken thighs at Minit Stop are among the best in the state. Incredibly juicy meat hides beneath a crunchy-craggy skin seasoned with gusto, and it’s always ready to go. The musubi has a nice teri sauce slathered under the Spam; it’s best when you add a piece of chicken skin on top. We order a box of thighs and four cartons of Chick-a-rrones chicken skin to take back to O‘ahu, because why not?
