Bon Bon

The name sounds like candy, but this Korean fried chicken fast food chain should inspire similar cravings. The no nonsense approach to ordering one thing that is delicious is executed to a tee here. The environment is sterile and almost cartoon-like, but all is forgiven with an order of the spicy wings and drumsticks. It’s not going to supplant Charles Southern Style anytime soon, but as a downtown alternative these wings are excellent, lightly battered and crunchy to the taste. The spice is moderate and causes more of a tickle, but the addiction is quite clear. Each order comes with a semi-sweet bun and cole slaw, but the chicken is the star here. I would order a batch and pop some nice cava, prosecco, or even champagne for a special meal/occasion. Somehow a magnum of Grand Cuvee Krug comes to mind…
