Near The Jersey Shore alone we have a Kpot, and Koi Asian Fusion Lounge in Toms River, and a Kimchi Fusion in Asbury Park!

One popular Korean fried chicken though is rapidly expanding in the Garden State, and it has plans to keep growing.

What Korean Fried Chicken Chain Is Growing In New Jersey?

What's cool is that it's a chain that's as authentic as it gets, it got its start in South Korea in 2002 before opening in America in 2004.

This place doesn't just do Korean fried chicken by the way, you can also get pot stickers, Korean Tacos, shrimp, sliders, and a lot more.

But the fried chicken is the real MVP here.

According to NJ.com, Bonchon Korean Fried Chicken plans on opening 3 new locations in the near future in the Garden State.
