Don Chon Korean BBQ & Wings
Don Chon is a restaurant offering up an extensive menu of Korean eats.
Whatever it is you're craving from Korean cuisine, this homey spot in the heart of The Queensway has a menu that runs the full gamut.
From dolsot baps and kimchi pancakes to ja jang myeon, Don Chon's selection of food items is pretty thorough, without being too overwhelming.
The main attraction of the restaurant is definitely the Korean fried chicken. They only come in two flavours: in a soy sauce or a sweet and slightly sauce. You can ask for the latter on the side, to dunk and pour on yourself.
Wings come in five pieces ($14) up to 15 pieces ($32), while boneless chicken ranges from 10 pieces ($15) t0 30 pieces ($30).
Korean BBQ is a bit different here than at your usual KBBQ spots. While there is the option to grill the raw meat at your own table, it's actually recommended that the kitchen just cooks it for you in the back.
It's not AYCE style here. Shareable large portions of bulgogi ($18) and spicy pork ($18) come on sizzling hot plates.
An order of pork bone soup is pretty much mandatory. Don Chon's version of PBS ($12) is a tasty miso-based broth with pork back-bone, potato, cabbage, and perilla seeds in a stone pot.
The tteokbokki ($13) is a huge portion of Korean rice cakes doused in a red pepper sauce.
You can add cheese or ramen noodles or both for $2 each.
Balance out all that deep fried stuff with a huge portion of house salad ($8).
Portions at Don Chon are pretty big, so there's no doubt you'll be stuffed by the time you leave—if the complimentary banchan dishes didn't push you over the edge already.
