As I was in the Financial District all day, I decided to check some fried chicken places (I admit: I craved it). It was a bit early and there were not that many people in the restaurant, besides couple of people at the bar.
I decided to get a thigh and wing combo and chose the half/half option for the sauciness: half spicy and half mild. The spicy coating is made of red chili pepper and the mild one with a soy garlic mix that has a slight saltiness. The chicken was fantastic: very crispy thanks to the double frying, cooked all the way through and moist. The coatings were also sublime, with a preference for the spicy one that put my mouth on fire, but was so good that I could not resist it.
Fortunately, they give daikon with every order, that soothed my mouth thanks to its cooling effect.
I love the fried chicken at BonChon and was glad they have a spot close to where I was that day. It is definitely worth the trip anyway!
Enjoy (I did)!
