Chef Kuniko brings to life her childhood memories of picnicking with her grandmother in Japan through her first standalone passion project, Pikunico. The concept (whose name is a playful combination of “picnic” and “Kuniko”) offers housemade “karaage” (Japanese-style fried chicken), one of her favorite, guilt-free comfort foods she enjoyed growing up. Pikunico has brought the chef back to the essence of why she cooks: to make people happy. You can order online at Pinkunico.com or visit them at The Row in DTLA.
