On Thursday after work, a couple of my coworkers and I headed to Korea town to have dinner at Bon Chon Chicken. I tried it before and wasn’t really impressed (maybe I was expecting something else) but this time, when I walked in, I realized I kind of had a craving for the juicy, tender meat and the light and crispy crust. We had six in our party so we decided on three orders – two soy garlic and one spicy. The soy garlic drumsticks/wings:
And the spicy order:
Pam, Brandon, and David enjoying the chicken:
The soy garlic wings/drumsticks were better than last time but the spices from the spicy drumsticks/wings were slightly off. I’m not sure why, but there was something missing in the heat of the sauce. The crispy skin is definitely something special about Bon Chon Chicken, but after a while, it can get to be too much…too much oil can’t be good for you, right? I can’t really complain about the food, but there is definitely something lacking in their service. It took 20 minutes (no joke) to have a waitress come to our table (and the only reason someone came is because I went to the bar telling them that we needed to order). I’m not sure why the waitresses aren’t that into…working. There weren’t that many people in the place, either, so it wasn’t because they were extremely busy and had other tables to tend to. After dinner, Audrey, Pam, and I headed to Pinkberry (even though it was freezing outside) and shared a shaved ice:
Shaved ice, condensed milk, strawberries, bananas, kiwi, pineapple, and mochi with pinkberry frozen yogurt on top. The picture was taken from a previous trip to Pinkberry for shaved ice, but I never had a chance to post it!
So, my verdict on Bon Chon – I think it’s a fun place to hang out if you don’t mind waiting…be careful going up and down the stairs to the restaurant because the steps are super small!
