Hell's Chicken

I really love finding new gems around the neighborhood. When a ho hum Thai place closed and Hell's Chicken's awning went up, I was really excited! Finally something different in the neighborhood. It opened a few months ago and Mr. M&P and I hopped in for a quick bite to eat.

Hell's Chicken focuses on Korean fried chicken but also offers a full menu of other popular Korean dishes like pajeon and bibimbap. They also dabble into some Japanese food like udon and katsu. But I was there for one thing and one thing only: Korean fried chicken. We went for the medium mixed platter ($12; 6 wings, 3 drums) in soy garlic sauce to share. The chicken was freshly fried to order. It came to the table with crispy skin with a thin layer of sauce. Inside, the meat was cooked through and juicy. It was well executed. The chicken stayed crispy, juicy, and warm through the very last piece.
With the chicken, we ordered small sides of mac and cheese and radish ($3 each). The mac and cheese was creamy and cheesy with tender pasta. Not bad at all. The radish was lightly pickled and crunchy. A great way to offset the fatty chicken.
I really enjoyed my meal at Hell's Chicken. The chicken was good with its crispy skin yet juicy meat. The service was friendly and didn't have any mishaps on their first days of being open. I would definitely go back.
