Why we crave Korean fried chicken from Kimchi Guys
In The Blues Brothers, when the eponymous rockers go to Nate’s Deli, Jake famously orders four whole fried chickens and a Coke. When we go to Kimchi Guys, we’re wont to make the same order – except in our case, we need the Korean fried chicken with the spicy original sauce.
It’s spicy, sticky, aromatic and full of sweet-savory umami. There’s a lot of fried chicken out there, but once you bite through this bird’s sublimely crispy skin to arrive at its perfectly cooked, juicy interior, you’ll be glad you chose Kimchi Guys. Served with a vinegary white radish kimchi and a side, this soulful main is worth getting the band back together for.
