Dubon Chicken - A Korean Fried Chicken Pop-Up

No longer need to trek to Yonge/Finch to experience Korean Fried Chicken ecstasy! Or New York for that matter. When I was in NYC last fall, I fell in love with Bon Chon Chicken. Dubon Chicken sounds similar...if so, my gluttonous prayers have been answered.

Their wings are fried not once, but TWICE!  Yet they aren't as greasy as your typical wings. Then they are coated with bold Asian flavours.

    I have to agree with Adrienne. The chicken was good but there are tons of Korean restaurants that do kampungi (Korean spicy chicken) better. Their fries were like McDonald's with some spices sprinkled on. Overall, missing that zing that will cause customers to return time and again for their chicken. Thanks to everyone for a fun evening of conversation!

    Pretty good. The wings could have been crispier and spicier. Canadians can handle WAY more spice. Look at Khao San Road!
    Not sure if the intention was to achieve the same crunchy/candied shell like Bon Chon, so I might be remiss in my feedback. But the flavours were good.
    The fries were missing something. The fries needed some internal juiciness. But it is a work in progress, a pop-up after all. They handed out feedback cards which means they are open to feedback. It was a promising start! I hope they will move forward with a permanent home for Dubon. (My longest review yet. What can I say...I am passionate about my Korean fried chicken)

    Got a message from Dubon that they can seat us earlier at 6:45. Is that ok for everyone?

    With so many on the waitlist, I checked to see if there is a way we could hold another outing but they only have reservations available for after 9 or 10 pm on April 10th. :(

    Hi- if there are any last minute cancelations, let me know- I can make it short notice as my office is only a block away.

    April 10th is open. You wanna make some room so I can add my testosterone to bolster Jason's and he doesn't get overwhelmed by all the estrogen? ;)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
