New Korean Bon Chon Chicken Restaurant on Northern

Yesterday on one of our late night walks to Han ah Reum for the Chowpup's favorite snack du jour "poon ah pang" (sp?), sweet red-bean stuffed fish-shaped griddle cakes, I noticed a new place that seems to have sprung up overnight- "Bon Chon Chicken" at 157-18 Northern Blvd. My husband went in for a takeout menu which was all in Korean and the kind waiter basically explained that they only serve fried chicken- legs called "Royal Drumsticks" ( which interested me b/c "Four Seasons" down the block, the placed that used to be "Maru" that does all of the really good "jjan chee jip" catering made outstanding fried chicken legs last week in a sweet and spicy pignoli studded sauce...but I digres....) , wings, or thighs- in either Soy Garlic or Hot Sauce. The photo card that suffices as their menu shows very straightforward-looking fried chix, but today my Korean high-schoolers waxed poetic about the place and pretty much described it as a temple that is the apotheosis of chicken. Is it part of a Seoul-based chain? Has anyone been? I'm currently on a very basic, mostly liquid-y diet to prepare for an upcoming abdominal surgery :( or I would have gotten an order last night.

Looks interesting.
