Korean Fried Chicken will rock your world!

Glendale is hungry | Oct 21, 2009 12:16 PM

After reading about it for a while, in September I tried Korean-style fried chicken at two different places, Kyedong on Northern Blvd. in Flushing and Bon Chon Chicken on Bell Blvd. in Bayside.

I highly recommend that chowhounds who haven't been to check them out. Which one's better? They're both...different.

Bon Chon has a thicker coating and is crunchier (therefore closer to some Southern-style fried chicken in texture) whereas Kyedong has a paper-thin coating and is therefore more delicate.

Bon Chon's hot version is hotter and their soy version seems to be more garlicky. Kyedong again, in both instances, is a bit more delicate (though still delicious).

Kyedong also has other things like pork bellies and Korean sausages on the menu which, while I didn't try them, look quite enticing.

Both cook to order so be prepared to wait a good 20–30 minutes.

So which one is better? They're just different. Which one would I go back to first? Kyedong - to try that sausage!

Until one of these opens up on Fresh Pond Road or Myrtle,
