Good news for Bonchon fans: The Korean fried-chicken chain debuts a Hyattsville location today. The branch is the tenth for the greater Washington area, with the first District eatery set for next year.
While addictive crispy birds are Bonchon’s standard, menus vary by franchise. Business partners Jing Sheng Huang and Xuan Huang-Fu, who are behind the Hyattsville location, offer Asian-fusion dishes as well as beer, wine, and cocktails. A number of new items developed at the Bonchon headquarters are also available, and will eventually be offered in most US locations. These include fried calamari, spiced fries, bulgogi wraps, and sliders stuffed with either crispy chicken or marinated, grilled beef.
The new restaurant is located in the University Town Center, next door to Regal Royale Stadium 14 Theatre. With Gone Girl debuting there Thursday, it looks like your weekend dinner-and-a-movie plans are set.
