Soho Korean Restaurant---Fried Chicken

saluki | Jul 4, 2007 10:26 PM

I've been reading about how good the Korean Fried chicken was supposed to be, so I was on a mission to find it in the Philadelphia Area.

I found a restaurant on Cheltenham Avenue called Soho. It is an immaculately clean and pleasant place with a nice staff. They had the fried chicken and I asked for a take out order.

What I actually asked for was what they call the Half and Half fried chicken. Eighteen pieces
of what turned out to be hands down the Best Fried chicken I have ever eaten. Nine of the pieces are mild and sweet and the other nine are spicy with vinegar. The chicken is all wings and drumettes and came with a nice order on square cut pickled Daikon Radish a very nice and cooling accompaniment. The eighteen piece size was twenty dollars and worth every penny.

The only thing I would have done differently is to pick up some beer. Beer would have been gone great with the spicy wings. This is a real keeper and I'm permanently spoiled for any other fried chicken----Nothing comes close. I'd love to know what the secret is.

I also liked how the chicken was packed. It was very carefully boxed so it wouldn't get soggy.
Although, the place is called Soho; The Chicken is actually called Bon Chon and is what is on the aprons the waitress's are wearing.

The patrons on this night were mostly young and clean cut and quiet. I saw allot of desserts being ordered---but no question---The reason to come here is the Fried Chicken..........
Now if they would only put one in Bucks County I'd be in heaven.
