You should come to Bonchon first and foremost for the fried chicken. It’s very flavorful, very meaty, and lightly fried. They serve a lot of other things, too, including some sushi and poke, but you can skip those. If you want something other than chicken, go with the salmon avocado ball topped with roe and stick to the small plates part of the menu in general. It gets crowded here on the weekends, but, unlike the Harvard Square location, this one isn’t in a windowless basement, making it a much more comfortable place to enjoy some soju.
