Get Ready for Phoenixville’s Korean Fried Chicken Restaurant


If you’re stuck in Phoenixville’s rush hour traffic, you probably passed the construction at 95 Nutt Road. Since the closing of Sal’s Pizza Box, the building at the corner of Manavon and S. Main Streets has been vacant. Without a replacement, the rundown building was a bit of an eyesore at the bustling intersection. Recently, renovations began to spruce up the corner spot to prepare for the opening of a Korean fried chicken restaurant.

Hold Up! Korean Fried Chicken?!

Yes! The new resident of 95 Nutt Road is Soko Bag–a restaurant that specializes in South Korean fried chicken. 

The restaurant is owned by J.H. Chang and her husband Shea Winter Roggio. The couple got their inspiration from their experiences traveling to South Korea.

If you’re in the Philadelphia area, you may know Soko Bag. The Korean restaurant started with pop-up food events. Along with Korean fried chicken, some of the initial offerings were bulgogi cheesesteaks, mandu (Korean dumplings), and hotteok (Korean cinnamon pancakes). 

Talk about comfort food! According to the site, the secret recipe began with Chang’s mother in Gumi, South Korea, where she spends 5-6 hours a day concocting her delicious dishes. Thanks to Soko Bag, Phoenixville residents get to enjoy the authentic taste of South Korea in their backyard. 

Just look at the Google reviews! The restaurant has 5 stars and one person even said they’d give up their firstborn child to try the chicken again. 

All jokes aside, the addition of Soko Bag to Phoenixville offers an experience that doesn’t exist today. Not to mention, the location sits outside of the downtown area, which means that finding parking won’t be a huge issue.
