Bonchon is an easy choice for a fast casual lunch or dinner around Navy Yard, especially if you’re looking for something quick before a Nats game. The Korean menu has salads, bibimbap, and pork buns, but your best bet is to load up on the wings. They’re double-fried and they keep them simple with just two flavors (spicy and soy garlic). You’ll want to get them both, because Bonchon lacks in choices is quickly made up for in flavor. If you choose to eat wings at the nearby Buffalo Wild Wings instead, you will be awarded no points, and may god have mercy on your soul.
