They are serving flavors that are not seen within the Korean fried chicken world like Lemon Pepper and Kingston Black.

Chicken Pong is located right in the center of Wilshire Blvd and S Alexandria Ave. City Center H Mart and Chapman Plaza are right across the street, so it won’t be too difficult to find. The restaurants near Chicken Pong would be Chang Hwa Dang (CHD) and 85° Bakery Cafe.

What's on the menu?

There are a variety of flavors you can choose from: Original Crispy, Yangnyeom Spicy, Galbi (soy sauce), Lemon Pepper, Kingston Black, and Cali Cajun (spicy). They sell these flavors in chicken and also the wings. With sides like pickled radish, garden salad, french fries, and more, they are a great addition to the chicken. They also have a special lunch menu where you can order a chicken sandwich with flavors of original, Cajun, and Galbi. You can also have a four piece chicken set with two sides for lunch! Many Korean fried chicken places don’t have special lunch options, so you should definitely try it out.
