This is one of the only places inside the Loop where you can consistently find Korean fried chicken—which makes sense, as KFC is their specialty. What makes it so good—and so different—is that it’s fried twice, giving the chicken an extra-crispy exterior and a supremely juicy interior that’s elevated even further by a spicy red chile sauce. We recommend cooling off the burn with Dak & Bop’s hand-cut fries and a Cool Cloud Cucumber cocktail with yogurt. Yes, yogurt.

If visiting its second location in Timbergrove, don't expect the same stuff. Here, in slightly more formal digs, get that superior fried chicken, along with dishes that blend Korean and Italian. Think penne tossed in a bulgogi ragu and gnocchi with Korean chili butter. Furthering that marriage, there's a menu of flatbreads (gogi lovers is essentially a meat-lovers pizza) and appetizers that include calamari and bruschetta. Lots of innovation happening here.
