After the East Coast-based Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken opened its first location out West, it quickly became a popular destination in Los Angeles. Now, the bakery is set to expand even further with a new location in Santa Monica.

As reported by Eater, the new location is set to open later this year. Astro Doughnuts will look to bring its unique concept to even more people, with items like the Crème Brûlée Donut and the Fried Chicken BLT which are some of the most popular dishes on its menu.

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken first rose to prominence in Washington, D.C., where it became a popular destination for its delicious concepts. It has been building a fanbase for a few years, and followed that with a second location in the suburbs outside of D.C., and then the Los Angeles location just over a year ago.

Rarely can an eatery become famous for more than one product, but Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken lives up to its name. Publications have named it as one of the best places for fried chicken in the country, while others have dubbed it a top doughnut shop in the country.
