Maybe you had a day at work that made you want to sell all your possessions and become a drifter, or maybe you just had to chaperone a few tourists to the top of the Empire State Building. A beer and some wings will make you feel better, and you should get them at Bonchon. This is a Korean chain with locations around the country, and, while they have some things like pork buns and bibimbap, the reason you come here is for the double-fried wings and drumsticks. Get them spicy, and hang out for a few minutes.

It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
