Dak spicy BBQ wings

There's a reason a full roll of paper towels tops every table in this mod chicken shack: The signature Korean-style chicken wings are enormous, saucy, sticky and hopelessly messy. They are also hopelessly delicious, so order double the amount you normally would. (Here's a tip: Wings drenched in soy-garlic "Dak sauce" are more craveable than those in the spicier—but less interesting—barbecue sauce). One of the rice bowls—say, the tender bulgogi—is probably in order, too, not so much for the meat but for the rice, which can soak up any sauce the wings leave behind.
