Bok a Bok sizzles
Chef Biran O'Connor's new Bok A Bok Korean fried chicken spot has opened in Seattle's White Center. The quick service Korean fried chicken place is O’Connor’s first restaurant and represents collaboration among O’Connor and partners Jael DeLeonardis and Alex Prindle.
Bok A Bok’s menu centers around Korean fried chicken, with a crispier take on the traditional batter sealing in the juicy, natural flavors from fresh, sustainably-raised chickens. Inspired by O’Connor’s travels throughout Asia, this spin on fried chicken sets the restaurant apart from others in the Pacific Northwest. Guests can pair fried chicken breast; thighs and wings with a selection of house made dipping sauces ranging from sweet to spicy.
The menu also features rice bowls, fried chicken sandwiches, and Korean-inspired sides including kim chi, sweet potato 'tator tots, sweet and spicy coleslaw, pickled veggies and house-made biscuits.
The drink selection includes slushies....made with soju, Korean and local beers, Jones soda and barley tea.
Bok A Bok Chicken seats 20 at 1521 SW 98th Street. The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
O’Connor’s second restaurant, Same Same Noodle Bar, is slated to open in White Center later this year. He comes from the kitchens of Skillet diner, Blueacre Seafood, The Hollywood Tavern, Westward and Quality Athletics.
