When I visited Korea, the most delicious chicken restaurant I had in Korea was bbq chicken. I prefer a mild taste rather than seasoning, bbq chicken’s Golden Olive Chicken was perfect for my taste.
A few months later, when I came back to the US, bbq chicken caught my eye in the Chicago area.
Choong Man Chicken(CM Chicken), a Korean-style chicken restaurant that opened last year, is also my favorite, but I didn’t know that the bbq chicken I ate in Korea would be so close to where I live.
Chicago, Arlington Heights, Vernon Hill, Niles, and Spring Grove are already open, and Schaumburg, Lincoln Park, and Rolling Meadows are scheduled to open soon.
Choong Man Chicken also continues to open branches.
In addition to the first store opened in Glenview, close to the Joong Boo market(중부시장), the second store opened in Aurora and the third store was opened in Lincoln Wood.
Chicken is the best choice for a snack or side dish to pick up and eat during the pandemic. The recommended menu is definitely the Snow Onion Chicken.
