|Fried chicken and pork at Honey Chicken|
The newest entry is Honey Chicken -- a counter in the new Lotte in Catonsville -- and we used a Groupon for an entire platter of chicken and pork. Some wings, some legs, pork cutlets stuffed with cheese, and a mix of spicy and mild white-meat.
This is a nice addition to the Korean fried chicken at Tian Chinese Cuisine and Bon Chon in Ellicott City. It's not a restaurant. It's more a lunch spot. Or takeout. We ate our chicken at one of the two tables before shopping at Lotte.
Our favorite of the Honey Pig chicken was the white meat nuggets. Mrs. HowChow generally prefers white meat, but I usually go wings. I snapped up the bite-sized pieces. The spicy wasn't that hot -- nothing like Bon Chon's over-the-top. But I bought an extra hot sauce to spice it up.
The Honey Chicken sits next to the Honey Pig Dumpling counter. They're both great spots to eat before you fill your shopping cart. They're also good for takeout. A little steam reheats the dumplings, and the chicken stayed crisp even after a little while in the oven.
