Bok A Bok Fried Chicken
When Bok A Bok is good, it’s really good, and you can expect gluten-free Korean fried drumsticks and thighs with batter that shatters, dunked in tasty dipping sauces like a jazzed-up ranch, or sesame miso vinaigrette. But for the majority of the times we’ve eaten here, we’re disappointed in their chicken, which trends simultaneously soggy and dry. As for sides, you’re in good hands with some incarnation of fried potato, or a homemade biscuit with spiced honey. And while the heat and crispy garlic topping on the kimchi shells and cheese is enticing, we constantly wish there was more salt. We also wish it wasn’t overcooked. If you’re in a pinch and are interested in spending around $15 on a quick meal, you can certainly do that here and not be angry. Especially if you just order some tater tots alongside every delicious dip in the building.
