Oriental B.B.Q. Chicken Town, Berkeley/Oakland

I feel a bit guilty about this particular one, because I discovered it about 9 months ago and never got around to actually posting. Oriental B.B.Q. Chicken town is a) the owner of a remarkable name, b) where another Korean roast chicken joint used to be, c) bizarre inside, with weird tiki decor and linoleum floors, and d) delicious. Shamefully, I haven't had an opportunity to go back, or it's been closed when I've tried, but it's still in business. Basically, they have chicken, roasted or fried, with or without sauce. They have fish and some other things, but they seem beside the point. My girlfriend and I shared an order of the fried chicken with sauce, and it was fantastic. It's a quite hot red sauce along the lines of Sriracha, but more warming and sweet and sort of barbecuey.
