Choong Man Chicken, web site, 9528 Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA, 703-772-0072 – also in Centreville and Annandale (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Google | WaPo | Washingtonian | TripAdvisor | Ylp]
An order of magnitude better than all the other Korean fried chicken places around. This is actually artisanal food and an order takes a full twenty minutes, as it should. The sauce is unique, rather than corporate, and it even has smoky tinges. Reminds me of the little, family-run places in Seoul. Definitely recommended, and don’t go too late because at some point the parking lot becomes dysfunctional (because of the laundromat, not because of the restaurant).
