Crisp, Chicago

5 of 13

In the land of
20-pound pizza and street-seller hot dogs, there’s a new craving in town, and
it comes from (and with) Seoul. Crisp, a Korean fried chicken headliner in the
Lakeview ‘hood, dishes out a half dozen versions of chicken, all served two
ways: half or whole. For Sassy Seoul, the cooks bathe the birds in a
garlic-ginger-soy blend, dust them with flour, then double-fry for a
mysteriously greaseless finish. The Plain Jane has a golden, almost translucent
coating, the trademark of the Korean fried chicken tradition.
