Fried Chicken From Honey Chicken In Catonsville

Fried chicken and pork at Honey Chicken
Once upon a time, we had to go to Woodbine for special fried chicken.  Now, the crispy treat is running up and down Rte 40.

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.

NEAR: Honey Chicken is inside the Lotte Supermarket on Rte 40 in Catonsville. It's an easy drive from Ellicott City. Lotte is on the left side just after the first car dealerships. Inside Lotte, go to the left wall. Honey Chicken is next to the Honey Pig Dumpling stand.

Have they added any sort of dining area? We dropped by when only the dumpling counter was open, and there was no spot to really sit and eat our dumplings before finishing our shopping.

@Kat -- When we were there, they had two tables and six chairs. It's pretty small, and I'm not sure where they'd put much more seating without blocking an aisle.

Didn't really like it the one time we had it.

Not crunchy and overly sweet.

I don't think it was fresh when we got it, as the wait was less than 5 minutes.

Loved it! My kids went crazy for the white meat chicken and the slaw salad was a nice addition as well.

Speaking of fried chicken and Rt 40... We were walking to Chen Hibachi and noticed Tian Restaurant ( has a sign advertising "Mad for Chicken" ( Has anyone tried it? How does it stack up with Bon Chon and Honey Pig Chicken?

HowChow said...

@Kathy -- I think it's great. Bon Chon has wonderful wings, and I'd probably start someone there. But Tian makes really good chicken. I'd recommend starting with one order of chicken and one order of the house-made noodles with black bean sauce.
