The Psy Sour
Look for Korean ginseng drink with honey in Korean markets. It usually comes in small clear bottles; the most popular brand is Royal King. If you cannot find it, honey syrup (right) is a good substitute. Yuja, an Asian citron fruit, is called yuzu in Japanese and is available at Japanese markets. Lemon juice will do in a pinch. We serve ours with a ginseng candy and a traditional Hwatu playing card. Excerpted from KOREAN FOOD MADE SIMPLE © 2016 by Judy Joo. Reproduced by permission of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.

Dakgangjeong (Koreatown Fried Chicken)
When it comes to the art of frying chicken, Koreans could give Southerners a run for their money. There, said it. Korean fried chicken (KFC) chains have set up shop in the Koreatowns of New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Los Angeles. KFC combines savory, spicy glazes and skin that shatters like glass. And guess what? We have the secret. Booyah!Many have said that frying the chicken twice achieves a next-level crunch, which we aren’t going to deny. But the real key is the batter. Ours uses soju, which inhibits gluten formation and keeps the batter light. If you have a little extra time, we highly recommend partially frying the chicken, then freezing it for at least two hours before a second fry.We offer recipes for two classic sauces you will find at Koreatown chicken joints: spicy and soy garlic. You can also simply season with salt and pepper and dot with Frank’s Red Hot, which elevates any fried chicken experience, Korean or otherwise. Reprinted from Koreatown: A Cookbook.
