Eaten Korean Fried Chicken At Red Wings

"Korean-style fried chicken is radically different, reflecting an Asian frying technique that renders out the fat in the skin, transforming it into a thin, crackly and almost transparent crust."

I had never had
Korean fried chicken before, but I have to say I think J and I may have discovered one of my favorite restaurants in the City. It's called Red Wings and it's located on Geary Boulevard, not far from Masonic. There are a couple of reasons I left wanting to come back very soon.

First of all, we got there and discovered their happy hour special (between 5pm and 9pm). It's a combination plate of two different kinds of chicken (they have four kinds), plus either a pitcher of beer or a bottle of soju for $19.99. The normal price for this was $27, which I think is still a pretty good deal.

Second, the chicken was delicious. We ended up with four different kinds, and they were all good! The outside was crispy and flavorful, and the chicken was so juicy. I really, really enjoyed it.

Finally, the people that work here are super awesome. They were very nice, and even though there was one guy who was very drunk and passing out, they were both patient and tolerant and just tried to help him. They could have easily kicked him out.

There is no way I'm not coming back to eat here. I only wish I had found this place sooner.
