Recommended list of the best delicious and popular Korean restaurants in the Chicago area 2023

There are many Korean restaurants here in Chicago and its surrounding areas. However, unlike in Los Angeles or New York, there are no large-scale or specialized Korean restaurants.

A long time ago, there were successful restaurants in Korea and the United States, such as Woo Rae-ok, but they did not last long.

There are many cases where Koreans who live here or who come from Korea to the United States as tourists look for a good Korean restaurant, but either give up because there is no suitable place, or regret it after stopping by.

There have been many times when we invited foreign guests here and were disappointed because the service and food were poor.

To prepare for these things, I would like to introduce Korean restaurants that I have visited that are overall recommended in terms of service and food.

[Enjoy Chicago] Best Korean-style fried chicken restaurants in Chicago area

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.

Choong Man Chicken (CM Chicken) locations in the Chicago area are as follows :

1. Choong Man Chicken Glenview
9850 N Milwaukee Ave, Glenview, IL 60025
