Frying the entire chicken

with 2 comments

Visiting Seoul for the first time, there was no doubt some of the famous Korean fried chicken had to be tasted. Had always been a fan, having been a frequent visitor to the Bonchon location in midtown Manhattan. One of the first nights there, a particularly late night, wandered around the neighborhood of Myeongdong for a spot to grab dinner and found Chicken 678.

Walking past the rather large outdoor space, was seated towards the rear of the restaurant – perfectly tucked away and hidden. Browsed the menu and immediately saw the chicken, it was a split-second decision that an order of soy friend chicken was the one.

Being used to other establishments denoting a specific number of pieces or which part or what shade of meat is preferred, a large plate with bunch of friend chicken goodness arrived – the entire chicken was split up and served, no arguing over what parts to order, they were all there.

Crispy, juicy and everything expected of Korean fried chicken.

Ended up enjoying friend chicken on another late night and it was just as delicious – they know how to do fried chicken.

  1. did you hear about 치맥 (chimaek). It is what they call eating chicken and beer. 🙂 chi for chicken and maek for maekju which is Korean for beer!

    • I had one night of chicken and beer on another evening — perfection. That particular night, stuck with soju. 😋
