Having previously tried two Korean Fired Chicken joints (Bon Chon & Kyedong), I found Boom Boom to be the best out of the three. Boom Boom, formally a Bon Chon, has similar fresh, never frozen wings and drumsticks, a 20-minute turn around time and similar choice of sauces. Like Kyedong, it also offers whole fired chickens that is sure to please customers who like breasts and/or thighs. The restaurant has a total of three tables that can seat six. The staff is extremely friendly and can speak both English and Korean. The restaurant is located on a street that has very limited parking, so be prepared to circle a bit.

When visiting Boom Boom the only decisions you will need to make are:
– Large ($20) or Small ($12)
– Drumsticks, Wings, Mixed, or Whole Chicken
– Soy Garlic, Spicy, or Mixed

All orders come with a can of soda and and a cup of Korean daikon radishes. If your taking away, your food will be neatly packed; if your eating in, you will be provided with wooden bowls to eat from. Similar to other Korean fried chicken joints, I recommend you phone in 20 minutes prior to pick up or dinning.

We got a small order of wings and drumsticks with half soy and half spicy sauce. Like its counterparts, the skin was very crispy and the meat was very juicy; however, Boom Boom’s soy garlic was a lot more bold and the spicy was not overly spicy. With that said, if you really enjoy the overly spicy taste (and I know a lot of Koreans do) Boom Boom wont do it for, hit up a Bon Chon instead.
