White Center restaurants: Bok a Bok Fried Chicken ready for Wednesday opening

(WCN photos)
That’s Chef Brian O’Connor (second from left) and his crew at Bok a Bok Fried Chicken, ready for opening day Wednesday (June 1st) on SW 98th just east of 16th SW. We reported almost two months ago that Bok a Bok was on the way to that space; tonight we stopped in for a few photos during Bok a Bok’s “media preview” night. We were a little early so the food wasn’t ready yet; we don’t eat on the job anyway, so we’re happy to show you the crew and the space, seating 22:

Chef O’Connor describes it as “fast casual” but not mega-fast – it’ll take about 12 minutes to fry up your order. Speaking of which, here’s the menu, given to us on paper at tonight’s event:

Bok a Bok will open daily at 11 am, running as late as 11 pm if they haven’t run out of chicken yet. The website should be ready before opening day.

P.S. Chef O’Connor is also still working on a second White Center restaurant, as we mentioned in April, Same Same Noodle Bar, location still TBA.

  1. Looks delish! But I’m wondering, why does it have the undercooked warning? The only thing I see on there that is the poached egg.

  2. Damiana O'Connor Says:

    The health department requires it for a poached egg. They consider it “under cooked”.

  3. Brian O'Connor Says:


    Thank you, we are excited about being in the area and are amped that you think our menu looks delish. As for the Health Warning on our menu, we are required to place it on our menu even if it’s for a poached egg. We look forward to seeing you!
