Legendary Korean Fried Chicken Back at Meritage

Holy sh*t!  That was my dear friend Pauline’s reaction when I told her that Meritage, a charming restaurant and wine bar near Rittenhouse Square, is bringing back its now infamous Korean fried chicken.  Since Chef Ann Coll debuted this wondrous concoction back in 2010, it’s become somewhat of a cult favorite in Philly, especially given its sporadic appearance on the menu.

Perhaps to keep up its elusive reputation, Meritage will only be offering the chicken on Thursday nights.  The deal includes a platter of the sesame-ginger-garlic-onion-marinated, twice fried free range chicken, plus two sides, for only $16.  To wash it all down, cans of Sapporo will be on special for $5.  And if you’re still hungry, Korean short rib tacos will also be available.

Full disclosure: I have yet to try the chicken that I’ve written so glowingly about in this post.  But I’ll definitely be heading to Meritage soon, before this tantalizing special disappears (again)!
