While deep fryers are best used for preparing chicken, they are also handy for covering evidence from failed potato dealings and shady Fonzie schemes with a layer of crispy breading. Savor scrupulously breaded poultry with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Korean fried chicken at Kyochon. This Groupon is good at locations in LA, Culver City, Cerritos, and Glendale. Named Best Fried Chicken in 2008 by LA Weekly, Kyochon earns praise for its delectable fare and its exclusive use of hormone- and antibiotic-free chicken from California farms. Peruse the menu and satisfy a demanding savory tooth with 10 wings treated in Kyochon's signature soy-garlic sauce ($8.99). Or, engage in an alternately sweet-and-spicy march to the beat of drumsticks in hot-and-sweet sauce ($8.99 for four). A combo meal with four honey wings, a fried potato wedge, and a soft drink squares off a chicken-shaped meal ($7.99).
LA Weekly named Kyochon Best Fried Chicken in 2008. More than 430 Yelpers give the LA location a 3.5-star average and give the Glendale location a three-star average. More than 1,200 Facebookers are fans.
- …the chicken comes out, hacked into random pieces, all garlic and juice, heat and crunch, and finishing every last femur and scrap of rib meat becomes the most important thing in the world…it's the Kyochon birds that you dream about the next day. – Jonathan Gold, LA Weekly
