Chef Kang’s is a Korean-American spot on Vermont with a massive menu that includes everything from hot dogs and mapo tofu to bacon sliders topped with wasabi ranch. But the two things you really want to focus on are the fried chicken and the spicy seafood noodle soup. The chicken is served with a myriad of sauce options, but we recommend the honey butter and the spicy soy garlic. As far as the soup goes, be sure to bring some friends along, because the $12 portion is enough to feed three grown adults.
