Chicken, the No. 1 Food  You Must Try in Korea  - Korea Tourism Organization
Loading...

Chicken is considered to be the best-loved food by male and female Koreans of all ages. This is shown well by Cheon Song-yi (played by Jun Ji-hyun), a top star who concentrates on her diet, but cannot resist the temptation to eat chicken in Who Came from the Stars. The shapes and flavors of chicken differ depending on the recipe. The Frypan has deep-fried boneless tenderloin and drumsticks, which is quite popular among female customers because it is easy to eat. BHC Chicken has many menus ranging from basic deep-fried chicken to unique ones with garlic, cheese, etc. The Jongno main branch is open 24 hours, so you can go there regardless of what time it is. Kkokkoajji Sutbulchikin is popular for its “Chibap” where you eat rice with glazed fried chicken, and you can also add an extra order of ramen noodles and rice cakes. Manseok Dakgangjeong in Sokcho is known for its glazed, deep-fried chicken bites. Unlike other kinds of chicken, dakgangjeong's crispy texture can be better enjoyed when eaten cold.

TIP
Enjoying "Chimaek" (Chicken and Beer) Any Time, Anywhere 
One of the reasons why Koreans frequently eat chicken is the convenient delivery service. 
Also, it is the preferred food to have while drinking since it goes very well with beer. Normally, chicken and beer can be ordered anywhere between 1 p.m. until 1 a.m. This is why many people enjoy “Chimaek” in a Hangang Park when the weather is good. Before your trip in Korea ends, why not have some “Chimaek” in a Hangang Park?
