Bon Chon Chicken

Back in December my friend M and I met up so that I could have my first taste of Bon Chon chicken, woo!!  I've heard SO MUCH about Korean fried chicken before and I was like reallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly excited to try it out!

To start, we split an order of fried dumplings with their soy garlic sauce on them - this was crispy and delicious, a great precursor to how the chicken taste would be, haha.

Here's my order, which consisted of 1/2 soy garlic chicken and 1/2 spicy soy garlic chicken.  In the middle is a little cup of pickled daikon, which I also love.

THIS CHICKEN IS SO FRIGGIN GOOD.  Really super crispy without feeling greasy, and the sauce is fantastic.  The spicy version has a nice kick to it which I really enjoyed, but it's a toss-up as to which version I liked better. 


I'm torn between going back to have more or deliberately staying away because I know I'd eat SO much because it's so good, haha! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh it's so good!

Have any of you tried Korean fried chicken before?  Is there a difference between the brands or do they all generally taste the same?
