Psy. Gangnam. K-pop.

None of the above will be involved in what we tell you today.

But we are going to talk about the next big thing from Korea. In fact, it may change your Super Bowl viewing forever. Or at least your Super Bowl viewing next month.

Meet Dak Korean Chicken Wings, a purveyor of oversized sweet-and-spicy flappers, now open in Edgewater.

You may have encountered such jumbo savories at places like Crisp in Lakeview. They’re basically the Korean version of classic buffalo wings. The sauce is sweetish and spicy-ish, but instead of celery, here they serve them with a pickled radish called moo. Your Super Bowl party will survive without the celery.

Of course, you’re not limited to the wings here. The setup is pretty perfect for a quiet neighborhood lunch. There’s paneling on the walls, tables with sleek aluminum chairs and a handwritten board of options like rice bowls with spicy chicken, pork and steak.

But no Korean rice bowl would be complete without a little Milkis to wash it down. In case you’re unfamiliar: Milkis is a creamy, carbonated milk beverage. Chow Yun-Fat was once its television pitchman. He swears by the stuff.

Always trust Hong Kong action stars.
