Tongdak (fried chicken)

Meet Korea’s version of fast food. Chicken is dusted with seasoned flour, then fried twice to develop a delicate, crackly skin and tender, juicy flesh. Some places serve wings seasoned with a hot red chile sauce or a sweet garlic-soy glaze. Others serve a small half-chicken. Eat with pickled radishes or soy-marinated jalapeños and Korean beer or soju.
