Korean-style twice-fried chicken has landed in Columbus. International chain restaurant Bonchon Chicken has opened at 3586 West Dublin Granville Road.

Bonchon, which means “my hometown” in Korean, has over 142 locations in six countries, but this will be their first Ohio opening. The casual sit-down restaurant is known for its signature crispy twice-fried chicken brushed with either a soy-garlic or spicy sauce. In addition to fried chicken, Bonchon offers an Asian fusion menu, including a salmon avocado ball, bulgogi wraps, and fried calamari. Bonchon hopes to bring the ‘Chimek’ experience to the Midwest – a combination of chicken and ‘maeju,’ the Korean word for beer.

“We are positive that once the Columbus area customers have their first taste of Bonchon, they’ll be addicted,” said Bonchon owners Haun Lin, Zohny Cheng, and Zen Zohang Cai in a press release distributed this morning.

The restaurant, which occupies an old Asian Go location, seats 138. Bonchon has a full liquor license, serving beer, wine, and mixed drinks. They will be open weekdays 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., and Sunday noon – 9:30 p.m.
