On Saturday a friend and I went searching Federal Way for the famed Korean chicken wings that I'd read about in the Philadelphia Inquirer (and sampled when back visiting my folks--they are astonishing):
We went to Hanmaum and Cockatoo and at both locations the chicken wings were a whisper of what the wings were like in Philly. While the Philly wings were enormous, fried twice for that smooth crispy exterior and the shockingly moist meat, and gently brushed with spicy and sweet glaze, the wings in Federal way were puny by comparison, at Cockatoo they told us they were not fried twice, and in the case of the spicy wings at both places, they were dripping in gallons of artificial sauce that drowned out the chicken flavor. Very disappointing.
Does anyone know of a place in the greater Puget Sound that makes Korean style chicken wings that aren't imitations of the real thing?
