Qchon Chicken Wings in Torrance

echoparkdirt Jun 4, 2012 12:59 PM

Qchon has just replaced the old, closed KyoChon at Torrance and Crenshaw inside the korean market there.

Amazing crispy, garlicky fried chicken wings. Nice portions, half the price of KyoChon. Hot ones are not too spicy but with a lil bit of heat and sweet.

Worth a try for fried chicken wing lovers.

    Haven't been since Freshia closed. What's the supermarket that moved into that space?

      S-Mart. It's exactly the same.

      That's hilarious. They pulled an SGV sign swap. Remove the Ky, ditch the franchise fee, add a backslash to turn O into a Q. Awesome.

      Kyochon is just too damned pricey for what it is -- small piece over fried, extremely spicy chicken

        Is there anywhere to sit? I went to that Kyochon a few times some 2 or 3 years ago, but then Freshia decided to rip out all the interior seating, which made things a bit too tricky: either drive the chicken home (it got cold, in my case), or try to eat it in your car (a godawful mess).
