$ Korean

Chosen Subject: Korean hot wings according to a pair of cooking pros in a zen-modern spot with a premium on service. Developer Kevin Cavenaugh calls it “faster than McDonald’s, but with Draper Valley chicken and recipes by a Beard award winner.”

Stuff Your Face: These deep-fried wings are hot, salty, crunchy stoner-food heaven. The craggy coating clings to a trio of intense, aromatic Asian sauces that John Pence makes fresh daily. At $10, six big wings with mixed sauces, a scoop of mellow macaroni salad, and rice is a steal.

Be Warned: Takeout orders are a bust. That puffy magic coating wilts after a long road trip in a steamy bucket.
