If you are going to Bonchon for the first time and you don’t know what to choose from their menu, previous customers recommend trying the chicken wings that are cooked by using a double-frying method. Also, the coleslaw and potstickers are very appreciated.
You should plan on spending anywhere between $14 and $40 for one of their signature fried chicken dishes, such as wings, boneless wings, strips, or combo. Korean traditional meals like Japchae, Bibimbap, and Bulgogi are priced from $12 to $20.
Expect to pay $12 to $15 for a Korean taco, wrap, or bun, while the Asian fusion items, such as Takoyaki, Tteokbokki, Potstickers, Shrimp Shumai, or Popcorn Shrimp, will cost you anywhere between $9 and $17.
