Ready for the ultimate KFC in Columbus? I’m not talking about Colonel Sanders, but the irresistible Korean Fried Chicken. From very spicy to umami-rich sesame and soy, or even sweetly glazed options, these wings are a crispy, juicy delight.
Whether it’s traditional or boneless wings (and let’s be clear, boneless wings are NOT just fancy nuggets – they’re whole pieces of thigh or breast meat), you’re in for a satisfying feast.
Korean Fried Chicken Wings stand out with their unbeatable crispiness and tender, flavorful chicken, and I can’t wait to show you my top five picks in Columbus.
CM Chicken (1132 W Henderson Rd)
I always go for the Red Hot Pepper Tikkudak chicken. It’s first fried, then baked for that extra crunch. The wings are drenched in an addictive gochujang sauce, making them irresistibly spicy and sticky. And don’t worry, they’ve got you covered with plastic gloves to enjoy this messy delight.

KOSHI (1265 Morse Rd)
Tucked inside Saraga International Grocery, KOSHI serves up amazing Korean cuisine. The Signature Korean Boneless Fried Chicken is covered in their special Koshi sauce – a spicy honey soy blend that’s sweet and savory. The chicken thigh is perfectly cooked, juicy, and flavor-rich. Pro tip: After feasting at KOSHI, explore Saraga for an incredible grocery adventure.
bb.q Chicken (17 E Lane Ave)
bb.q stands for ‘Best of the Best Quality,’ and they truly live up to it. My top pick? The Gangnam Style Wings. These high-quality chicken wings are tossed in a sweet, aromatic black pepper sauce, sautéed with green onions, garlic, and peppers. It’s a flavor-packed dish that showcases their commitment to quality.
WuKong Express (599 S State St, Westerville)
WuKong’s sauces are a highlight, especially their Curry, Honey Garlic, and my top choice, the Red Hot Pepper—a Korean style spicy sauce. This Red Hot Pepper sauce strikes the perfect balance, offering maximum spice without being overpowering, and it’s packed with flavor, not just heat. Their wings come with a thicker breading, adding a unique and satisfying crunch.
TaKorea (1556 N High St)
Korean Fried Chicken – Korean style Twice Fried Chicken, tossed in spicy Korean sauce, sprinkled with sesame seeds, peanuts, and green onions, then finished with a dash of chili oil. Located inside ‘Game Arena’, it’s the perfect spot to fuel up before or after a gaming session. This combo of great food and gaming is sure to make for an unforgettable experience.
