CravePhilly is a video series highlighting local cookbook author Hope Cohen's favorite food finds (old & new) in the Philadelphia area.
Bonchon (1020 Cherry St.), a Korean restaurant in the heart of Philadelphia's Chinatown, specializes in a unique Korean-style fried chicken. What makes it unique? It's twice-fried.
They also have an extensive menu featuring beef, seafood and chicken specialties, plus a full service bar.
With years of hands-on experience with Korean cuisine, founder and CEO Jinduk Seh decided to focus on perfecting a recipe for fried chicken, sharing one of his country's favorite comfort foods with the world. The result was Bonchon – Korean word for "my hometown."
The first Bonchon opened in 2002 in the coastal city of Busan, South Korea. Today there are over 30 locations nationally.
