Bon Chon | April 6, 2009

Love fried chicken? Do the flavors of Korean cuisine make you mouth water? Go to Bon Chon in Annandale, VA for the best combination of these foodie favorites.

Bon Chon chicken is fried to perfection in a choice of spicy or soy garlic sauce with a side of pickled daikon radish. Their cooking process takes a really long time, (usually 30-45 min – so I call ahead) but it’s well worth the wait. It comes out hot and crispy on the outside, and juicy on the inside. Unlike the fried chicken Americans are used to, Bon Chon chicken doesn’t have the flaky batter on the skin. This place is a must-try. Unlike any fried chicken you’ve had before. Guaranteed.

  6. Crisp is yummy…already been there a couple of times since the move. 🙂 Also ate at Jin Ju in Andersonville recently–faubulous! Will let you know when we’re out your way and we’ll plan a Bon Chon run.

  7. I want to eat, and I can’t! (Until I finally get a ticket to VA) When’s there going to be some WPB/Miami reviews up here? That’ll be better for me 🙂
