I'm going to dinner with some friends next week and promised to take them to a good fried chicken place in Koreatown. Where should we go?

    Mad for Chicken on 5th ave between 31&32nd street, second floor. It has an industrial feel. At night the music and scenes is VERY loud, I don't like how noisy it is but the chicken is very good. Lunch is much quieter.

        +3 for Mad for Chicken. It can get a little "clubby" from Thurs-Sat but it kind of adds to the Ktown vibe. Their chicken is definitely much better than Kyochon and Bonchon - both of which can be quite dry.

            what's the name of the chicken place on 32nd St( south side). on 2nd or 3rd Floor, no English sign. Long bar. then tables by window.
            I liked the chicken there, and some of the other dishes.
