There's one less Korean fried chicken joint in OC these days. Kyochon, which opened sometime in the summer of 2008 inside Stanton's Freshia Market, has recently closed up shop.
It's a shame, but not a surprise. A common complaint was that, while it was tasty-good, it was also expensive: one wing amounts to an average of about $0.91.
Others join Kyochon on its trip to oblivion. Here's the roll call.
Some on this list were reported by us; some others were discovered by other publications and sites. Farewell all.
