I was really intrigued about Bon Chon’s Korean fried chicken after seeing Kirbie’s Craving’s post here.
This place was packed on a Friday night so we waited about 45 min. The waiter kept saying 15 min every time I asked how long it would take. Anyways, the atmosphere is nice and friendly. Their menu is pretty simple. It’s either original or spicy, drums or wings, and you get to a side dish with your order of wings. The wings come out to be around $1 each and drums $2?

I’m not sure what is about Korean fried chicken but this is no KFC. The batter is sweet and tangy sticks to the chicken. We got a mix of original and spicy. The drums are considerably bigger than the wings. The chicken was fresh, juicy and tender. I liked how it came with salad and diced radish which were quite refreshing. The portions were decent for two people. We ordered 6 mixed pieces with a side of french fries. We were stuffed from the meal.


It’s not complete without some curly fries!
Btw though we didn’t have any, I do believe they offer a variety of flavored sake. It seems like an interesting combination.

Overview
Price – $
Taste – Tasty!
Atmosphere – Friendly place for gatherings with friends
Service – Meh 45 min wait, food arrival was prompt and waiter was ok.
Options – Limited focused on chicken

Overall I would recommend trying out this place as Korean fried chicken is a interesting variation, moderately priced and I thought it was quite tasty. However it is quite a unpredictable wait time so I’d probably either go on weekday or get takeout. 🙂
