New Bedford’s New Korean Restaurant Chicken Story Unlike Anything Else In City
There's a new Korean restaurant in New Bedford that has a menu you won't see anywhere else around the SouthCoast. Well, other than its Fall River location, of course.
It's called Chicken Story and it specializes in Korean-style fried chicken, corn dogs and boba. The menu is simple but offers tons of sides, sauces and flavors. On Monday, Sept. 11, Chicken Story officially opened in New Bedford.
At the corner of Linden and County streets, you'll find the biggest and cheesiest corn dogs you've ever seen. Each one weighs just under a pound and costs around $5. Good luck finding a better and tastier bang for your buck.
"It's a lot of work, but we're ready and very excited," owner Jae Choi said. "We welcome everyone to come and try us out. You won't find anything around here that offers what we have."
This place exceeded all my expectations, from the menu to the serving size to the prices. Although I didn't get to try the Korean fried chicken or chicken sandwiches this time, I was still blown away by how large and heavy the corn dogs were. Given the different options, I chose the sausage and cheese filling with a potato crust. Between six different sauces, I chose the sriracha aioli. This corn dog was massive, very cheesy and went well with my side of Kimchi fries.
To wash it all down, I ordered a signature boba beverage. The Dragon Fruit Popping Bubble was refreshing and fun to drink. I was told that once fall starts, the business will offer a special pumpkin spice bubble tea.
"For the next three months, we will be offering free boba toppings as our grand opening special," Choi said.
Food, flavor and friendliness. Chicken Story checks off the three F's. I'm excited to see what else it has to offer.
