Fried Rabbit?

Like chicken-fried rabbit. Saw a picture on hunter-angler-gardener-cook and now I have a-desire-that-must-be-sated.

Anybody do this? Ideally whole rabbit quarters. Simpler the better. I’m imaging this with biscuits and gravy as opposed to a szechuan preparation.

I haven’t had it myself, but I know Animal does a fried rabbit leg dish with Charleston Gold Rice and sour cream gravy.

Some have reported the gravy can be a bit overpowering though.

I haven’t been to animal in a few years but I don’t remember feeling quite so raped by the prices on their menu. Paying $36 for a couple rabbit legs to support some asshat’s celebrity chef lifestyle is a real appetite killer.

Rabbit is weirdly expensive to source for a restaurant. If they’re charging 50% more than they would for fried chicken they’re not necessarily making any more money per plate.

I always order it when I have the chance.

well if you want the fried chicken + biscuits and gravy approach, I see no better version than Animal’s.

I wonder if they the fried rabbit was off the menu when I was at Animal? I’d normally order them but there were more dishes than I could handle as a solo diner. The rabbit larb was better than the larbs I’ve had at Thai and Lao places.

They may get me to break down. I suppose it may merit a circle back. But I’m more likely to go to Bel Campo this weekend, grab a two-for-one burger (thanks FTC’ers!) and pick up a rabbit to fry up at home.

didn’t flores and sons.used to have chicken fried rabbit?

They did. Back when it was Ladies Gunboat Society, I believe.

I was thinking of Flores, too, but the on-line menu no longer shows the fried rabbit/chicken/etc.

I think Flores and Sons still has fried chicken as a happy hour special until 6:30pm.

That is too bad. I think it used to be more of a “special” entree but became so popular it has remained a new “classic”. You should grab an order of them when you come to town. I think I am the only person on these forums that loves them at Animal, probably my favorite dish there. I agree about the larb, too. I was pleasantly surprised to see such a great larb being done there. I also love rabbit though haha

Gravy overpowering? One can only hope! I am so tired of wimpyass gravy …

Buy yourself a rabbit at Hawaii Supermarket, then head south on Del Mar, hang a left on Garvey, and ask Boiling Seafood Wok to fry it for you. Which they will do.

Rabbitage applies.

That is my sole reaction to what you have written about getting a boiling seafood place to fry a rabbit spontaneously for you.

So coincidental, I just re-watched “Fatal Attraction” recently…
