The Best Korean Fried Chicken in Toronto

The best Korean fried chicken in Toronto does baskets of battered bird like nobody’s business. There’s definitely no shortage of competitors in the city given the number of Korean chains opening up in the city, but these fried chicken spots take chimaek to a whole other level.

Here’s the best Korean fried chicken in Toronto.


The Fry

The Fry

One of the first Toronto chains to ride the Korean fried chicken wave, The Fry’s locations in the Annex and by Yonge and Wellesley serve up platters of crispy chicken in the usual array of flavours like green onion and soy garlic.

You’ll definitely need some beer or soju to wash all this fried stuff down. Restaurants in the Annex and on Spring Garden are frying up baskets of 16-piece chicken orders doused in sauce and cheese.


Chicken in the Kitchen

Chicken in the Kitchen

The cheese volcano chicken platter covered in fried chicken and creamy sauce is epic and comes highly recommended, if you feel like indulging in some bird, bread, and cheese. This Koreatown North restaurant is the first location of this Seoul-based brand.

Dakgogi

Padak boneless chicken with sweet-and-sour mustard sauce or soy garlic wings are popular orders at this chill and reliable spot just south of Finch station. Unlike other restaurants, they also offer spicy chicken feet.


Drunken Chicken

Contrary to the name, the chicken doesn’t come in, say, beer batter, but that doesn’t make it any less flavourful. Generous portions make this cosy second-floor spot by Centrepoint Mall an absolute go-to.


Galleria Supermarket

Galleria Supermarket

Yes, Galleria’s a Korean supermarket, but hidden inside its stores at York Mills and by Yonge and Sheppard is a little food court stall called Mom’s Chicken. They do mostly big combos like whole fried chickens, battered and fried from scratch.
