Our Thoughts:Dak & Bop - Ethnic Spot for Fried Chicken?
Korean, Asian Fusion
1801 Binz St, #120, Houston, TX 77004, Museum District
They’re known for their Korean Fried Chicken but their menu encompasses plates of Asian flavors fused with Mexican. So order the chicken and some apps, because they disclaim that the chicken takes about 30 minutes. It felt more like 15 but we didn’t complain. The process is simple. Choose from wings, strips and drumsticks. Then choose 2 sauces. They also offer combos so you can mix and match wings, strips and drumsticks. Being twice fried, the chicken is crispy and tender. The sauce sticks to each piece and adds the flavor and kick each piece needs. The soy garlic was fantastic.
The Spicy Chicken Bao was definitely spicy. The sauce and jalapenos added that heat. The steamed Asian bun was soft and pillowed the chicken just right, soaking up any extra sauce.
The fries were crispy and salted just right. The mac and cheese was cheesy as expected. They accompanied the chicken perfectly.
In Short: Come here for fried chicken. Depending on business, the wait may take 30 minutes so order other items while you wait. A beer or cocktail will keep you company as well.
