Neighborhood: Koreatown
Address: 371 N Western Ave.
Perfect for: The Wing Spot

This place has only been open for only four months, but word on the street is that it's better than Kyochon, and it just so happens I might have started that rumor. Korean-style wings are like small gifts for your mouth. They pack a lot of flavor and before you know it, you've polished off 8 without even blinking an eye. You can taste the difference at Kokio because the chef has developed his own secret sauce recipes rather than importing them from Korea. From classic to sweet-and-spicy, each wing is insanely crispy with meat practically that falls off the bone. These combined textures make for a melt in your mouth meal.
