Looking for Korean fried chicken in Charlotte

Any sightings to report?

  1. I have yet to see Korean fried chicken anywhere outside of Manhattan, Queens, and northern NJ, at least on the east coast. I would give my left arm, right arm, and few other miscellaneous organs to find good KFC (Korean fried chicken) anywhere in-state. This is what all chicken aspires to be.

      While I've not seen any in Charlotte, I was delighted to find Korean Fried chicken as one of the specials at Lantern a couple of months ago. I literally squealed when our server told us as it wasn't on the menu. It was really good. I'm glad I tried it. It was crispy, like corn flakes, on the outside. I would definitely get it again. I'd also like to try a version from a Korean place.
