A shop specializing in Korean fried chicken and rice bowls is coming to Rittenhouse.
The crew from Chix & Wings (138 S. 11th St.) is venturing to 20th Street, just north of Chestnut Street, with Chix & Bowls. It will take the ground-floor spot between the Dunkin Donuts on the corner and Nuts to You at 28 S. 20th St.
Opening is on target for mid-September.
Co-owner Ben Wang says he is tinkering with the menu from 11th Street (formerly known as Chick-A-Lic and Chick-a-Licious), whose biggest seller is Korean fried chicken wings.
The new line of healthfully prepared rice bowls, based on chicken, beef, pork, and shrimp, will have various seasonings, such as a teriyaki chicken bowl, spicy garlic chicken bowl, chili aioli chicken bowl, and shikuyaki beef and onion bowl. Salads, grilled and fried chicken sandwiches, and fried fish will be available, too.
