Krave Asian Fusion Restaurant is a Korean restaurant in Irvine. The chicken skin at Krave isn’t just fully rendered of its fat by the double-fry method, which is the hallmark of all Korean-style fried chickens; it’s detached with an air gap in between meat and skin, forming a hollow, crunchy, candy shell you could rap with a spoon. You won’t be able to decide whether it’s like Peking duck, a crème brûlée or a combination of the two. But you’ll agree everything about it is perfect: This is a new level of achievement in the art of Korean fried chicken. If Kyochon and BonChon brought on its renaissance, this masterpiece is its Sistine Chapel.
