What’s pretty awesome about K-town Chicken & Hof is that the wings come straight from fryer to table, double-fried for crunch, and piping-hot when served. I also think it’s cute that they attempt to make things healthy by serving an odd little salad of shredded cabbage and what tastes like Thousand-Island dressing (so maybe not too healthy).
K-town Chicken & Hof is popular enough to fill up, but I’ve never seen it get to the point where there are lines, and seating is spacious. Like any bar, noise levels tend to be high, but never to a point where you have to yell yourself hoarse. And sports fans, never fear! To offset the K-pop music videos, there are always a few TVs that are tuned in to ESPN. If you aren’t in the mood for fried chicken, their kimchi fried rice is one of the best in Manhattan, the ddukbokki is dreamy, the casseroles are quite popular, and I’ve always wanted to try their fries.
