Covington’s developing dining scene can tally up another win with the addition of Chimaek. The new pub serves succulent fried chicken wings and tenders, crispy vegetable tempura, an array of tangy and savory Korean side dishes and, to round out the experience, plenty of beer and cocktails.
Owned by the same family that runs Riverside Korean Restaurant just around the block, Chimaek opened in November. The restaurant’s name is a combination of shortened words: “chi” for chicken, while “maek” is short for maekju, the Korean word for beer.
