You invited all of your friends over in an attempt to make a Southern chicken dinner, and knocked over eight quarts of peanut oil by accident. On your condo’s brand new carpeting. You could try again, but this is a scenario in which giving up will be far more rewarding - Ma’Ono is where you should really be going for all fried chicken needs in Seattle. And in addition to poultry, the Korean/Hawaiian/Southern fusion menu has options like roasted corn with miso caramel and furikake, and kimchi mac and cheese. The portions are family-style, the Asian dipping sauces that come with the chicken are outrageously good, and it’s perfectly acceptable to go about your meal with a brown liquor cocktail in one hand and a drumstick in the other. Even if your body is ready to go to the ER after a feast here, get the banana cream pie.
