Bon Chon Chicken serves Korean style fried chicken that is amazingly good. They have a number of location in the tri-state area and some over on the west coast (CA). I ate at the Bon Chon on Lemoine Ave and found the service to be exceptionally good. The staff speaks both English and Korean and are very friendly. The restaurant has amble amount of seating. Parking in front of the store is limited, but if you circle around you should be able to find a spot in no more than 10 min. Furthermore, there’s a parking lot around the corner that is free for shoppers (limited to 2 hours).

Both the spicy (contains vitamins A & C) and soy garlic are very crispy, juicy and not very greasy. According to Bon Chon, they use a proprietary sauce that stays on the chicken and not on your fingers, which is totally true. The soy garlic is exceptionally sweet and the spicy is very spicy compared to their competitors (Boom Boom & Kyedong). You can choose from a number of combination: wings drumsticks, soy garlic, spicy, or a mixture of both. An order of large goes for $20 and the medium is $12 (tax included). As of Oct 2008, the Leonia location no longer provides a free soda with each order, not sure about other Bon Chon locations. Do remember to pre-order 20 minutes prior to pick-up or dinning because the chicken is made to order and will take sometime to prepare.

I had a medium drumstick and wings with a mixture of both spicy and soy garlic, which also came with a cup of Korean daikon radish. I couldn’t decide which one I liked more as they were both very good!
