I cannot believe I waited this long to get to Bon Chon (recall, the NYTimes piece on Korean fried chicken over a year ago). I went to Baden Baden some months back and was unimpressed, and mistakenly thought I’d have to put off a proper chicken fix until I got out to Flushing. But no, here it was, all along, right in K-town.

So good, it made Bert cry. (Okay, the weeping might be because it’s spicy.)

And yes, get the Large.

    ahh! my first encounter with kfc was at a chain (i think bon chon) in the dc area — with a side of fries. i keep wanting that same crispiness every time i discover a new korean place that serves the stuff, but it’s not the same. the last place i went to was so spicy that i was in tears, and my throat was nearly raw. ask lydia — she laughed in my face as i tried to save myself . . .

    I can’t really tell, but are those daikon chunks in the white bowl?

    Yes, indeed. Pickled daikon. Which happens to be a perfect accompaniment. I just had KFC again at Bon Chon on Saturday, and while it wasn’t quite as amazing as the first time, it was still pretty damn good. Soy and garlic — and not hot sauce — is the way to go.
