Sweet Potato fries and Mozzarella Sticks
BonChon crispy wings
(1/2 soy garlic and 1/2 spicy)
If you're a fan of wings and you want to try a unique wing joint then BonChon is the place to go.
BonChon is a South Korean based franchise restaurant and it's known for their crispy wings. There are several BonChon chains around the city but my favorite location has to be the one on St. Marks. The St. Mark's location can get extremely busy due to the mass traffic of college students and of course everyone knows St. Mark's is the meca of cheap good eats. During the weekends the wait time can get insane so I would advise you to have an early dinner or lunch.
Typically, a wing joint has many variety of wings to choose from but BonChon only comes in two flavors soy garlic (sweet based) or spicy soy garlic. The wings are heavenly crispy, juicy, and simply scrumptious. I usually order sweet potato fries with my wings. The fries are very delicious. If you're thinking about drinking be sure to order the watermelon soju. It's a refreshing drink served in a huge watermelon that has been carved out to act as a punch bowl. Very creative huh? Be sure to pace yourself because this drink is a creeper. Another thing if you're not in the mood for wings Boka offers many variety of korean dishes and sushi.
