Grand opening celebration and deals announced for new Alexandria Bonchon chicken

Korean fried chicken chain Bonchon is planning a grand opening celebration on Monday, Feb. 28, with a week of deals lined up for different menu items.

The restaurant opened last month in the Bradlee Shopping Center (3690 King Street), which is referred to somewhat bafflingly in a press release as “the heart of Old Town Alexandria.”

Deals on offer that week are:

  • Monday, Feb. 28: $1 drumsticks (up to five drumsticks)
  • Tuesday, March 1: $1 Mac and Kimcheese or Korean street corn
  • Wednesday, March 2: $1 wings or boneless wings (up to 10)
  • Thursday, March 3: $1 seasoned fries

The chain started in Busan, South Korea in 2002 and now has 385 locations worldwide and 115 in the United States.

“People in Virginia love Bonchon, and that can be proven through the immense amount of support the restaurants get across the state,” owner Joanne Xie said in the release. “I know we’ll quickly become a meal-time destination to anyone who comes by King Street to enjoy the centuries-old architecture, historic attractions and incredible community of businesses.”

The Bradlee Shopping Center is, again, a bit of a hike from Old Town, but the nearby Fort Ward Park might count as a historic attraction.
