Korean fried chicken is a beautiful thing that both K-Town residents and frequent visitors like myself hold near and dear to our hearts. And Stark’s Hot Chicken is an example of Nashville and Korean-style chicken fusing together to create something unique yet familiar, but still undeniably delicious. Their chicken’s dry rub forms an extra crispy skin in the fryer, while the chicken remains tender and juicy underneath. Their sandwiches consist of pillowy brioche buns, hot chicken, briney coleslaw, and a spicy mayo that’s the perfect balance between savory and sweet. Stark’s also offers a delicious spicy mac and cheese on the side with lots of smokey paprika and Korean dishes like hobakjuk (pumpkin soup) or popcorn chicken with rice cakes in gochujang sauce.
