BonChon: Korean Fried Chicken, That’s What’s Up


957 2nd Ave [2nd ave. btw 50th & 51st]

Multiple locations including Ktown and St. Marks

New York, NY

Should you try? Yes for flavorful fried chicken

BonChon Drumsticks

I think Korean fried chicken is the best type of fried chicken.  It’s usually double fried and subsequently extremely crispy.  Bonchon serves up some really tasty, crispy fried chicken in either garlic or hot sauce soaked into the skin.  I’ve had both their drumsticks and wings, with the wings being normal size and the drumsticks looking like they came from dinosaurs.

I’ve also tried the duk-boki, bulgogi, spicy chicken, scallion pancake, fried calamari, and truffle fries.  All are pretty good, but I wouldn’t necessarily get those dishes here.  Stick to the fried chicken.
