This is not your daddy's KFC. This chicken joint is dark and sexy with a full service bar serving up lichi and pomegranate martinis. Black ceilings and red lights add to the nightclub vibe. Oh, and yes, there's chicken.
You can order up fried wings and legs done Korean-style, or white meat only. The chicken is double fried until the thin coating is nice and crispy and golden brown. There are two varieties; one made with Bon Chon's special garlic sauce that is a bit on the sweet side, and another that is hot and spicy. Think buffalo wings. Both are quite addictive, and served with cubes of pickled radishes.
You can eat in or take out. We recommend grabbing a wing and a martini.
