If Cuckoo’s bright yellow interior and silly plush chickens on every table don’t cheer you up after a sh*tty day, their Korean-fried wings and bubble tea will. The wings at this casual Andersonville spot have a light and crispy batter, and come in five varieties: soy garlic (our favorite), sweet and spicy, honey mustard, curry, and snow onion (a peppery yogurt sauce). And if you're feeling indecisive, just get their sampler platter. For $30 you get two wings per sauce, plus fries, takoyaki, and a pork bun. The space isn’t too large, but tables are often open, so it’s easy to pop in for a catch-up meal with a friend, or a quick solo bite.
