Located in the Costa Mesa’s Mesa Verde neighborhood and originally founded in South Korea, Bonchon is a family-friendly location serving Korean-style fried chicken. The restaurant has garnered an international cult following thanks to its spin on chicken wings, which are perfectly crispy and paired with a choice of glazes including soy garlic sauce or spicy hot. While the menu staple may seem simple, you have to try it to see what the international hype is all about.
The restaurant also offers other Asian inspired dishes, including noodle dishes, steamed dumplings, fried rice, pork buns and bibimbap. It also has a modest list of draft and bottle beers, wines, sake and soju.
