SouthGate Turns One


One of the best Korean fried chicken joints in town, SouthGate, is turning one. Known for their Korean style fried chicken and green tea waffles, they just recently made the cut for our fried chicken field guide.

Also, they’re turning a year old this week. And to celebrate they’re offering $4 Koren fried chicken wings, $4 Sapporo pints, and $6 Sake Punch. Stop in today or tomorrow between 5 and 11 P.M. to help them mark the occasion.
