Korean Fried Chicken update?
Is there a new reigning champ of KFC? Or is KyoChon still the best bet?
The Korean language boards are all lit up over Love Letter Chicken and Pizza. The pizza was a poor man's Mr. Pizza but the chicken was very good. Kind of a thick karaage crust. I think it has some atavistic childhood appeal for Koreans.
It's in the multi-level complex at Wilshire and Alexandria in the back on the first floor. Near the Bounty.
I thought it was good fried chicken but I'll still put my money on OB Bear for the best in town. By the by, Kyochon seems to be having some consistency problems in the last year.
gdamnit I've tried Kyochon twice since they've "re-opened" and something is so wrong with the new birds.
The spicy (I only do the spicy) is no longer nearly as spicy, and the breast pieces (in the "whole chicken") are fried to cardboard/drywall consistency.
Massive down hill alert. Back to Kokio for the yangnyum tung dalk.
