"Excellent Korean fried chicken at new Convoy spot"

"There are people who would walk a mile uphill for chicken wings. I’ve never been one of them. It’s just not a church at which I worship. I’ve been told it’s because I’m not from the South. I’ve been told it’s because I haven’t spent enough time in Buffalo. That all may be true, though as far as I’m concerned I’ve spent more than enough time in Buffalo. 

Still, I’ve come to believe the real reason I didn’t love wings might have been because I hadn’t yet tasted the Korean fried chicken wings at Cross Street (4403 Convoy St.) in Kearny Mesa’s Convoy District.

Korean fried chicken features a thin, crunchy, clean and non-greasy skin with a moist, savory interior. The trademark skin of this KFC is the result of a process that’s importantly different from the version in America’s south. For one thing, it’s double fried. They pull the wings from the Fryolator part way through the cooking process, which allows the chicken to cool and the oil to return to a temperature at which, when the wings are dropped in again, the skin crisps dramatically.
