The fries were cooked the way I like. I ordered the Korean Friend Chicken Sandwich with fries. The menu isn't overly complicated. Because I don't think you do! Overall its a solid place for great fried chicken. We shared a simple two piece chicken meal which came with fries, a bit of coleslaw, gochujang mayo, and gochujang sauce.
Some of the juiciest and freshest chicken I have ever had! I had to drink water every time I ate my fries, thats how dry it was 3. Added: Hotville Chicken, Dave's Hot Chicken, Astro, Sweet Chick Removed: Pann's, , Seoul Sausage, Pioneer Chicken Roscoe's is an L. Or check your box when you get it. I think a good tip would be order the chicken with the sauce on the side to dip. The pork belly sandwich was also very good. The rise of the angry, know-nothing gastro-yahoo The good thing about the internet is that anyone can voice their opinion.
But this is the nature of the restaurant industry in the Age of Yelp. Enjoy a cozy dining experience at Sweet Chick. I've had better Korean fried chicken before. Purists should definitely aim for the leg quarters. But it's clear that the kitchen's expertise extends to other items as well.
I likely won't be coming back through because for these type of foods I have more preferred places to hit. I wanted to bite into it right away but I couldn't as it was way too hot to eat. Probably not as there are many other fried chicken alternatives. The fries are packing with flavours too. But then there will always be good reviewers and bad reviewers, just as there are good reviews and bad reviews. I had the two piece fried chicken with fries and my niece had the pork belly sandwich. It was a pretty decent portion but that was probably the only good part about it.
Tender and full of flavour. This is not even the 7th best restaurant in Atwater village. He saw the takeaway dropped off at the pass by the server and watched it sit, undisturbed, until the diners returned to retrieve it. If it's negative you don't hear about it until the review pops up. I might have to go a little further afield to find my chicken. I remember reading about this place years ago, so maybe I let this build and it was kind of a let down having gone to other Korean fried chicken chains like the Fry.
Complement your meal with a delicious dessert. And one man has read nearly all of them: John Seymour, Sweet Chick's owner. Crispy skin and juicy meat! We also ordered regular fries with nothing on top and they were just as soft?! The coleslaw is nice, small but punchy with the vinegary and mustard seed. In short, this is the new average which is really good fried chicken, but it not going to move you. In the meantime I ate some of the fries.
Fair enough, and worth reporting. Lastly, we ordered a side of coleslaw which we didn't take a picture of; that was a huge disappointment considering we love fried chicken with coleslaw. Came here around 2pm sih for some good wholesome chicken. But as fun as it is to watch, even the wittiest and best-intentioned counterattacks can ultimately cause more harm than good. We had nowhere near enough food -- for months.
But being designated the best restaurant in the country tends to provoke the opposite kind of reaction. Overall a good tasting bite, but make sure you get the chicken hot and fresh, and eat it quickly before anything gets soggy! Even if you don't live in the hood, hop on the L and go check the Chick out! The only possible downside of food this fantastic, is that they aren't opening the doors for brunch for another couple of weeks. It really took us by surprise. Not many restaurants are open at 6 in the morning. Someone on Yelp had a great time, and everything was fine -- but suddenly when it came time to paying they're giving us a bad review and promising never to come back because we don't accept Amex. Some reviewers were complaining about too much sauce, but I kind of wish for more. It was a cold day and we decided to try Kaboom Chicken out.
