bbq chicken on st. mark's

and now for our guest blogger, mr champion, with a review of tonight's dinner:

hi. tonight we had bbq chicken, a new chicken place on st. mark's place. i think they're korean or chinese, who can tell the difference? anyway, i've always loved fried chicken, even though i was raised a vegetarian. my grandma would sneak me off to chik-fil-a or kfc whenever she could, but never popeye's (my favorite) because that was in the black neighborhood in cleveland. by the way, despite the name, bbq chicken is a fried chicken place, they don't even have barbeque chicken. but like i said, they're asian, so don't hold it against them.

back to business-- we ordered the five piece sweet spice chicken combo with mac and cheese, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, and biscuits. all for $12.95! not a bad deal. it was in one word: AWESOME! so greasy and crunchy and juicy, not very spicy though. i think they use corn flakes in the batter and they fry only using extra virgin olive oil. i'll try the hot wings next time and see if they're chinese hot or white people hot. the sides were also really good. one bad thing- our order took over 40 minutes for some reason. but they made up for it by giving us ANOTHER FIVE PIECES! it was so crunchy, i'll bet it still is when i have it for breakfast tomorrow.

so, to sum things up, bbq chicken fried chicken brought out the champion in me and made me feel like i could accomplish any task i set out to do. this is truly a chicken for winners, made by winners. with them behind me, i will conquer the galaxy!

nb- after briefly looking at their website, it seems they're korean, but they have restaurants in china too. very confusing.

thank you, mr champion. i hope we get to read more reviews from you in the future. i guess only if the food actually makes you feel like a champion, though, because otherwise you won't be mr champion.

It's an acronym for the "B"est of "B"est "Q"uality Chicken. kinda corny, yet i learned that it is one of the biggest/ successful fried chicken franchise in Korea!
it's funny how i ended up here while i was googling the phone number for the place but still, they have the best chicken fo sho!
