Crisp, juicy Korean fried chicken with a variety of sauces is the specialty at Coco Chicken, a new place in Fremont. It’s very good stuff, says adrienne156.
Dine in and an order of chicken gets you an all-you-can-eat pass to the salad bar, a simple selection of iceberg lettuce and red cabbage, shredded carrots with raisins, canned corn, and crudites, plus a few Korean vegetable side dishes. Kimchee is available on request.
The chicken is impressively cooked, says adrienne, and its thin, crisp coating gets better as it cools slightly. It’s undersalted, perhaps because it’s typically served with your choice of five sauces, including a Korean red-pepper sauce with lots of honey, soy-garlic sauce, and honey mustard. The red-pepper and soy-garlic options are good, but the honey mustard lacks zing.
Chicken comes in small, medium, large or jumbo sizes; a large consists of eight drumsticks and four wings for $14.95. There’s also bulgogi (beef, chicken, or pork) and kalbi (ribs), and sides of rice and French fries, and soda, beer, and soju to drink.
