Hen House Grill Opening Second Store Near UCI

Edwin Goei
UC Irvine might have just lost its biggest banh mi purveyor, but it may have just gained a place to get koobideh. Hen House Grill--which currently roosts at an often ignored location next door to Wholesome Choice in Irvine but produces one of the best koobideh and rice plates in the city--is opening a new outlet at a currently vacant spot near Strickland's Ice Cream.

The stencil on the blackened window says it'll open sometime this year. Let's hope it debuts sooner than a planned Mexican joint called Costa Vida steps away, which seems to have been stuck in development for the better part of two years.
