Sweet and spicy Korean fried chicken eatery comes to Point Loma

SAN DIEGO — With close ties to popular Asian-inspired restaurants like Steamy Piggy and formoosa, a new eatery in Point Loma is bringing Korean fried chicken to the table.

Say hello to bok bok dok.

While sitting alongside neon signs and beneath mood lighting, diners can experience the sweet, spicy and savory flavors of a dish that started as a “rare luxury in South Korean homes,” the restaurant’s founder — Frankin Chou — explained online.

Korean fried chicken is now one of country’s most popular dishes worldwide.

“After countless hours of taste-testing and experimenting, our team is proud to offer our take on a South Korean classic,” the restaurant noted.

Chou, a Taiwanese-Bolivian who founded SDB Restaurant Group, opened this Point Loma eatery as a first outside of the Convoy District.
