So it’s the new year, 2015 has finally come around. You know that that means, that’s right time to get back on the FUCKING DIET!!
BUT FIRST! I was told there was a new Korean Chicken spot in Sunnyvale! Well guess what, diet can start next week! How many times have you told yourself that.. I say it all the dayam time!
BEHOLD!!! The newest Korean Chicken Joint to come to the Bay Area!
VONS OVEN CHICKEN!
Wait what the fuck.. oven chicken?? Yes folks if you’re “trying” to be healthy they serve oven baked chicken. The menu is pretty small.. some oven baked and two types of fried chicken..Crunch and Crispy.. seriously what the fuck is the difference, they’re both fried.
Anyhow, it was time to order. First thing up. FRIES.. well no need for pictures of french fries because if you don’t know what they look like, you’re not American and no I will not accept potato wedges or potato cuts as an alternative.
After munching on the fries, we ordered their Kim Chee fried rice.
Looks bomb don’t it. OH yeah I can’t wait to digest this orange mound of shit! Well actually that’s what it really was.. a mound of shit because it didn’t taste very good at all. More like hey we got white rice in the back and i got some orange La Vics sauce here to turn that shit orange. well it didn’t work.
Next up, the oven baked chicken. (Menu is here)
This is called the Vons Special Sauce.
This gooey mixture is their BBQ sauce, actually it wasn’t too bad just becareful when you eat these wings. The sauce is very gooey and thick, if you’re not paying attention that shit will just drip off your chicken on to clothing or smeared all over your face, as I was told earlier even AFTER i went to the bathroom. Seriously I wiped my face, how did I miss it! Now you’re wondering how did the chicken taste… EXCELLENT!! We ordered the HOT version of this. Nope, not hot at all, hell my smoked chicken wings have more heat than this. However, it’s still good. I think I ate most of it. The sauce is pretty tangy and they cake it on the wings. One thing this place needs is wet naps. These single ply tissues ain’t working. Wiping your hands after eating these wings, your hands look like a disaster zone after a night of solo pleasuring.. wait.. is that too forward?
Okay, let’s get to the real stuff… the FRIED CHICKEN!
This is the Crispy Fried chicken. they say the difference between this and the Crunchy is the batter. Makes me wonder how Crunchy Crunchy. I’ll have to try it next time. The batter on these bad boys is interesting because it reminds me of frozen chicken! Primarily Banquet Bone in Hot Wings. (i eat this shit all the time, I can’t help it and no my stomach does not like this in about two hours)
We also once again ordered the Spicy version. I’m just gonna say it, they’re spicy is not HOT AT ALL! I wonder if they have a secret sauce in the back because there’s absolutely no heat on these wings. The good thing about these wings is that they’re cooked fresh. These things come piping hot from the deep fryer and boy are they worth every bit. Their hot sauce is a bit sweet but not over bearing. Good mixture. Sink your teeth into one of these and it turns into a Pringles Nightmare, you can’t have just one… or you feel like a Pokemon master.. GOTTA EAT THEM ALL.
Yeah it was really good. I was stuffed by the end.. well not really i came back and ordered 20 more pieces for my brother and have been snacking on them all day. Fuck it.. #fatboy status
SO now you’re wondering who’s better.. 99 Chicken.. vons.. bon chon.. coco chicken..
Well 99 chicken and Coco Chicken are in the same category of fried chicken joints. To me they’re not Bon Chon or Vons.. they’re just different. Just take my word for it.
So .. Bon Chon > Vons.
Sorry Vons.. you have more flavors, but Bon Chon still beats you out!
