We love the Korean BBQ craze, but's time to branch out and try some other Korean cuisine. You'll find several local Gwinnett establishments that offer authentic traditional Korean snack foods and they're to die for.

Here's a quick list to get you started.

Choong Man Chicken

Choong Man Chicken KFC has a new meaning and that is Korean Fried Chicken! Try super crispy tikkudak meaning fried and then charcoal- grill baked.
