A trio of new Korean restaurants opens soon at Spring Mountain Road’s Golden Spring Plaza after an under-the-radar debut now serves its own unique brand of crispy fried chicken. Casual restaurant Jong-Ro Chicken — which got its start in a street market in Seoul, Korea, in 1976 — moved into a corner space near Pier 88 Boiling Seafood & Bar, Saigon Baguette, and Shigotonin Japanese tapas and sake bar.

Jing-Ro fries its chicken with a “special powder and special oil,” it boasts makes the dishes “softer and more savory.” The restaurant serves its chicken as a whole bird, just wings, or as tenders in original and spicy buldak flavors that can be customized with snow cheddar, truffle mayo, tare soy, and a sweet gochujang Buffalo sauce. Sides include rose tteokbokki, its version of creamy Korean rice cakes, plus truffle and chili cheese fries and handmade cheese balls.

Also on the way to Golden Spring Plaza, Napal Baji, which is moving close to a launch of its 1980s-inspired, retro Korean izakaya, plus a more traditional “gourmet” menu from newcomer MiMiDam, serving gomtang, yukgaejang, and suyuk, better known as beef-bone soup, spicy beef soup, and pork belly within a promised “elegant” setting.

Jong-Ro Chicken, 5865 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 140, 702-405-7421. Open daily from noon to 10 p.m.
