Korean fried chicken is nothing short of glorious: deep fried twice, in order to maximize the crispiness while reducing the grease, meaning it deserves a spot in your fried chicken rotation. As a popular side-dish in Korean pubs, this fried chicken needs to be on the table for any drinking occasion. The Fry’s chicken is a must for any fan of fried goods. Try the soy garlic chicken for a savoury taste like no other, or the boneless chicken in spicy sauce. Combos are available and include a pitcher of beer, perfect for a good time around the table.

Mo’Ramyun may specialize in noodles, but don’t let that throw you off your chicken game. This Baldwin Street spot batters its fried chicken with ramen noodles, creating extra crunch with each bite. The Ramyun Fried Chicken Wings are totally worth a try to experience savoury and crispy noodle-infused fried chicken. Alternatively, you can order your chicken as a side along one of the signature ramyun dishes. However, going all out on the one pound wings is never a bad idea; it’s all about the chicken, after all.
