Anybody have a particular location in Korea Town (i.e., 30th-35th, between 5th and 6th) to recommend for this delicacy?

i also really like "baden baden" in the same area. the chicken is semi-rotisserie cooked, then fried. served with a great vinegary hot sauce. bon chon is good, but i get tired of the sticky sauce sometimes.

Sometimes I really wished I lived in NYC, but I would be one broke fat ass eating at all those great restaurants.

I've been to Baden Baden and really liked it but I want to try the saucy variety now. But I hear that Bon Chon tends to be very crowded and service very slow. Is this true?

i've tried a few korean fried chicken places, and the best seems to be a place called "ufc" (unidentified flying chicken) in jackson heights. it's right off the 7 train, and it's worth the trek.

I can't do UFC, at least not on this trip. But I'm afraid it's going to be hard to get in and out of Bon Chon fairly efficiently, so maybe that's out of the question too.

It depends on what time you go. Are you gonna go there for food + drinks + lounging? If so, yea, it'll take forever.
