Across from Freddie’s Burger is 4 Fingers Bonchon Crispy Chicken. This has a somewhat strange pedigree – it’s a US chain, but opened by a Korean. It specialises in fried chicken wings, and what I like about it is that you can order different parts of the wing – either the drumlets or the actual wing portion. They come in 2 flavours – spicy, and soy garlic. I ordered a 6-piece of just the wings, and combined the flavours.
They packed it in the same box, so the soy garlic ended up tasting a bit spicy from the spicy glaze of the others. Otherwise, the soy garlic is really quite bland and lacks any distinct character. The spicy, on the other hand, packs a surprising punch. Looks fairly nondescript but there’s some residual heat on your tongue. The wings are really crispy and the meat is pretty tender too.
This makes for a nice snack, but I waited for quite a considerable time for just one portion of wings. Definitely not something you can grab and go.
Spicier than I expected. The chicken is good, but the question really is whether it’s worth the wait.
