Dolsot House, Cherry Hill

Although Dolsot House is known for Korean food, it’s won awards for its wings.

The wings are jumbo-sized and usually ordered in bulk — guests order a dozen to 20 in one go.

What’s unique about the wings is that they’re double fried.

Seasoned and marinated for about 48 hours, the wings are fried and stored for when orders come in. As orders come in, they’re fried again and freshly coated with one of four sauces (honey, soy garlic, spicy and Diablo — the hottest sauce).

"It's crunchy, moist,unlike any wing you've probably ever had just because of the preparation that's involved with the frying aspect," said owner Craig Vogt.

Menus at the 1,600-square-foot restaurant are 10 pages long and filled with pictures and descriptive language to give guests a visual of dishes.

All menu items are customizable.

If you dine at Dolsot House, traditional Banchan is offered to guests: Before entrees and appetizers are served, a complimentary hot or cold corn and barley teaand five to seven complimentary side dishes are brought to the table.Most are vegetarian dishes, and onestaple is kimchi.
