Korean. Fried. Chicken. I’ll give you a minute.
Bonchon, which means “my hometown” in Korean, already has multiple locations around the world – California, Massachusetts, Korea and Thailand to name a few – but the restaurant is finally bringing its specialities to Philadelphia. Chinatown, to be specific. And the most popular dish? Korean Fried Chicken. Customers choose what type of chicken they want – wings, drumsticks or strips – and what sauce they want it to be slathered in – soy garlic or hot. Then they are free to devour the dish in either a small, medium, large or extra-large size. Bonchon also serves appetizers, salad and platters, like Chicken Katsu.
Look for Bonchon to be turning out its Korean fried chicken this fall. The restaurant will be located at 1020 Cherry Street.
