Well, first the bad news... Midland Thai is DEAD! Poor Louie (the incredibly nice manager of Midland Thai and one-time owner of Siam Ruby Cafe in Rochelle Park). Bon Chon has absolutely gutted the place. There isn't a trace of a Thai restaurant wrapped up in a 60s deli package. This place is now a casual hipster's hangout, with its wood floors, comfortable seating, K-Pop music, and big HD monitors showcasing the food.
I never had Bon Chon before, or any Korean fried chicken for that matter. It's good. Real good. You can choose a hot pepper sauce, a soy garlic sauce, or half and half to coat the wings. I went half and half. It still had a very solid kick to it. But it was tasty! Also tried the Bull Dak, which was fantastic, although quite spicy/hot, and the seasoned fries, which were also good.
While I'm going to miss Louie and Midland Thai, Bon Chon is an awesome addition to the area. It's a bit of an odd location, but hopefully the good food and the fact that there's nothing else like it in the area bring in the business.
