The Bay Area loves a fried chicken sandwich, and one we can get behind is from Hetchy’s Hots, a takeout-only spot in SoMa from the Square Pie Guys. Our go-to is made with a massive chicken thigh that’s doused in house-made chili oil and dusted with spice mix, and then topped with calabrian spices and a lemon aioli. But you won’t be disappointed with whatever you choose, whether it’s the one with ranch powder and pickled onions, or the one stuffed with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
