The long-awaited 92Chicken, a Korean-style fried chicken restaurant at Sixth and Wakarusa, is finally open for business.

92Chicken is just a couple doors down from Tous Les Jours, a French-inspired Korean bakery also owned by Seung “David” Ahn that opened in December.

Ahn said prior to the store opening that the unusual flavors set Korean fried chicken apart from its American counterpart.

92Chicken employee Sonny Han said Friday afternoon that the special mixture used on the chicken gives it a better coating, and that the restaurant makes its own sauces. He also said the variety of flavors set it apart.

So far, the honey garlic has been one of the most popular flavors, Han said. The Yang-Nyeom chicken, which he described as “probably the most Korean one,” has also been well received.

A few of the other flavors include curry, soy garlic, red garlic, snow onion and lemon spring onion. Wings, tenders and whole chickens are available.

Appetizers include tempura shrimp, fried dumplings and fried spring rolls as well as coleslaw and french fries.

The restaurant is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Tuesday at 525 Wakarusa Drive, which is to the northwest of the intersection at Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive. There are tables in the dining room to eat there, or take your food to go. See a menu and more at 92chickenks.com.
