Chicken Moto, a full-service Korean-inspired fried chicken restaurant, will open to the public for dinner service on Wednesday, February 22, with lunch being added a week later. Located at 2069 N. Central Expressway in Richardson, owners husband and wife/chef duo Sandy and Greg Bussey, Steve Shin and Sam Osee (all of bbbop Seoul Kitchen) describe it as Texas Southern comfort meets South Korean Seoul food.

Chef/co-owner Sandy Bussey explains how the idea arose for this new venture, “Our fried chicken was added to the bbbop menu and quickly became our number one seller. At that point, we agreed to make Not Your Mama’s Fried Chicken the focal point of our next concept. The Chicken Moto menu will offer super light and crispy Korean fried chicken that won’t weigh you down. We paired it with sides that mimic the familiar flavors of southern comfort food with a light, refreshing twist.”

The Food Menu

The menu is straightforward and uncomplicated with Korean fried chicken offered as the full bird, half bird or quarter (dark or light meat) with the choice of two glaze options being Soy Ginger or Sweet and Spicy Chili along with a choice of sides. Guests can also order it “naked” (no glaze). Starters range from creative items like Kimchi Queso, Chicken Cracklin’ and Elotes (on the cob with Korean spicy mayo) to more familiar options that include Taro Chips, Edamame and Pickled Veggies. Additional menu items include the Kale Salad, Fried Chicken Breast Sandwich with cole slaw and a Panko Crusted Chicken Breast plate served with curry fries and Korean dipping sauces.

The Bar Menu

A mixture of craft and classic beers will be made available with a short list of affordable wines by the glass.

A Little Bit More to the Backstory

The building that houses Chicken Moto was an auto repair shop before the team converted it into a full-service restaurant with bar. Co-owner Osee explains, “I love motorcycles, beers and fried chicken. These are perhaps the pure joys of my life outside of faith and family. Why not have great fried chicken and drink some cold beer in a place that feels comfortable and inviting.”
