Fried chicken needs to be flavorful and crunchy. Simple? Apparently not! I’ve always been under the impression that fried chicken basically tastes the same. The sauces vary but mostly they all taste similar. But Dok Dok Chicken in Koreatown changed all that. Not only do I have cravings for their fried chicken, but getting it from anywhere else would be inferior.
Dok Dok Chicken shares the same space as a boba and noodle place, and is off the main nom sections of ktown so it’s a little hidden and lesser known. But they’re customers are fiercely loyal and I can totes understand why.
We ordered the whole chicken in OG Crispy (No Sauce), and 10 pieces in Spicy Soy-Garlic.
The 1st impression is the crunch. And omg did it make an impression. It was extra crunchy but didn’t hurt the roof of my mouth even after crunching into all the pieces I nom’d. But honestly, you will never crunch into fried chicken the same way ever again. Even the sauced ones didn’t lose their crunch one bit. All crunches from anywhere else will never be able to match theirs nor satisfy me anymore.
The 2nd impression is the flavor. The Spicy Soy-Garlic was amazing and so spicy. But nothing beats the OG Crisp. It was a crunch, juicy, lightly salted piece of heaven. Warning, if you can’t handle spicy, do not get the spicy soy garlic!
The 3rd impression was the sheer amount of food per order, how delicious it all was, and how reasonable the price was.
Needless to say, I am now a loyal customer and will never get my fried chicken fix anywhere else.
