Kyochon Restaurant Review

: This Korean chicken joint---located in Koreatown, coincidentally enough---has a seemingly endless line snaking out its Fifth Avenue door. If you manage to get inside, there are several variations on the theme of fowl to choose from: we like the double-fried signature wings, especially when dipped in the fluffy garlic sauce. Also good are the sweet, tender honey-dipped wings, as well as the puffed-rice-encrusted Sal Sal chicken strips. The inside looks eerily like how we once envisioned the future: plenty of stark lines and glowing back lighting with moving images of landscapes shot from above. The future is here and it’s crispy.
