Bap and Chicken Korean restaurant in Chandler serves wild fast food

It’s Monday night and the karaoke room at Bap and Chicken is bumping.

A man wearing a polo shirt is busting out Dr. Dre’s “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang” while the screen plays a Korean music video. Ten feet away, a group of people split a tray of the largest chicken drumsticks I’ve ever seen. The legs are deep fried in tempura batter and slathered in radioactive-red chile sauce, which drips all over the table and their hands as they try to take a bite. 

On a night when many Valley restaurants choose to close, Bap and Chicken has cultivated a following by hosting unlimited free karaoke. There’s a different draw every weeknight at this Korean fast food restaurant, which opened in the old Habit Burger Grill on Ray Road and Interstate 10: kids eat free on Tuesdays, Wednesdays are K-Pop night and Thursdays are when they roll out the Korean corn dogs, coated in sugar and drizzled with gochujang hot sauce.
