BonChon on John (again)

I recently went back to Bonchon on John for post-happy-hour-munchies.  This time, we were hooked up to the ultimate since Cookie knew the owner apparently.  Awesomeness!


We started off with an order of dumplings, which were alright.  Great snack type food but nothing mind boggling or game changing. 


Sir Eats A Lot ordered a chicken and a beef taco.  I know he enjoyed these greatly, and I tried a bite of each and agreed they were pretty damn good.  Great sauce on both, and moist protein with a good tortilla.  Nom.


Pretty standard fries. 


The chicken, per usual, was deliciously crisp and well-flavored.  Super moist meat and very garlicky flavor.  I even had some spicy by accident and though I thought I was going to die, everyone else seemed to like it very much.  They also brought over some green sauce that was super duper spicy, though some of my friends were dipping the spicy in that.  Craziness. 


I went back a week later with the same group of people (long story why), and tried the zucchini fries about which I’d heard many positive words.  And let me tell you, these were awesome!!!  Surprising me, they were slightly battered, super crispy on the outside, and perfectly cooked zucchini on the inside.  I was totally into the plate and even had some of the “I only eat meat!” people eating them and loving them.  Delicious!

Yvo says: The owner(s) were obviously very friendly to us both times we went, but beyond that, the atmosphere was pretty chill to hang out and eat and have a few drinks.  With so many people, the prices are really reasonable (almost cheap, even), and we sat for a long time just eating and drinking, the owners never bothering us.  They had some of the NCAA games playing while we ate, which was cool, and the waitresses are all super friendly and cute, offering great service.  I definitely recommend it for a different kind of after-work-drink/bite in the area.

    Bon Chon on John was awesome. That was my first two times eating their chicken. Spicy was good stuff!

    And 2 for 1 beers the 2nd time we went – but you have to order them at the bar.
