If crazy-crackly fried chicken is your thing, you’re going to love MonoMono KFC, Denver’s newest Korean fried chicken joint in LoDo.

Behind the business — which opened Saturday at 1550 Blake St. — is longtime restaurateur JW Lee, who runs Wasabi Sushi Bar in Lakewood and the local fast-casual Asian chain Menya Noodle Bar.

On the menu: Choose from soy garlic or hot and spicy wings (or both). A dozen costs $16.

  • Don’t overlook the starters — like the ultra-crispy kimchi fries ($11) — or a few other main course contenders: namely the bulgogi cheeseburger ($14), gochujang fried chicken burger ($13) and kimchi fried rice ($11).
  • If you’re thirsty, try a cocktail with house-infused soju (a Korean spirit).
