Spicy, gargantuan Korean wings and quick-service rice bowls.

Our Review

This Edgewater storefront chicken hawker specializes in the sweet, sticky genus of K(orean)F(ried)(C(hicken) known as tongdak, here massive double-jointed freaks of poultrydom that when nestled together in the basket resemble a coiled avian mutation ready to strike out in revenge. At Dak, you have two options: a spicy barbecue variety slathered in a sticky-sweet, not-very-hot chile sauce, or an even sweeter soy-garlic variety (both can certainly be amped up with squirts of rooster sauce or the Korean chile paste gochuchang). Their sweetness makes the accompanying side of crispy pickled daikon (aka moo) almost a necessity, though I wouldn't necessarily recommend combining them with the bland bi bim bop. In addition to that, there are various meaty stir-fries—chicken, bulgogi, and bulgogi with the chewy cylindrical rice cakes known as dukbokki—plus egg rolls, dumplings, kimchi, and a selection of Western and Korean soft drinks, including Lotte-brand juices like rice, Asian pear, and grape, all with delicious chunkage in suspension.
