Here’s Where to Get Korean Fried Chicken in Westchester

These Westchester locations serve up the crispiest, tenderest, and sometimes spiciest Korean fried chicken.

Korean-style fried chicken is lightly battered with a crispy, crunchy finish. In the States, this term is typically used in reference to the yangnyeom variety, which is pre-seasoned and brushed with spicy sauce after cooking. This chicken has a kick, too, comparable in heat to the Nashville variety, but with its own flair.

Looking for the crunchy goodness in Westchester? Here’s where you’ll find it.

At Cravwings, it all comes down to choices, and the options for the Korean-style wings seem endless. Double-fried or boneless? Either way, you got it.

Duke’s Ramen

154 Mamaroneck Ave, Mamaroneck; 914.315.6020

With an audible crunch you can hear from a few towns over, Gene Lum channels his father’s Johnnie Lum’s wings of Lum Yen fame with these massive potato starch-floured beauties. Finished with oyster sauce and scallions, we wouldn’t blame you if you skipped the hard-to-resist ramen for a second order.

The aptly named Korean BBQ Grill is as authentic as it gets. The New Rochelle eatery offers spicy wings, which are indeed spicy but not overwhelmingly so, fried and glazed in a sweet and spicy sauce or a garlic soy sauce. For the less adventurous, or those with a more sensitive palate, there is a standard fried chicken option as well.

RameNesque

1008 Main St, Peekskill; 914.930.1788

One of the most popular items on RameNesque’s menu is the Korean fried chicken, and for good reason. The wings are marinated in spicy sauce and coated with crispy breading, only to be double-fried for an extra crunch. Don’t worry, this establishment is inclusive of all heat tolerance levels, too, with spicy and mild varieties to boot.

Yeomiji

13 Spencer Pl, Scarsdale; 914.874.5655

It is mind-blowing how something this good is only an appetizer. However, Yeomiji (correctly) assumes that you’re going to want more of its flaky, crunchy chicken, so the six-piece serving is sizable. These gluten-free wings are deep-fried and glazed with a savory onion soy sauce, and they’re always served fresh and delicious.
