A Story Of Korean Fried Chicken
This Is Not A Paid Post
I have a group of very close Korean friends whom I met during the our college days living inside the US boarding school. Everyday we would meet up, ate dinner, showered, slept and got drunk together on the same floor for international students. Now 2 decades later, we still chat silly inside the mobile phone's KakaoTalk which is very popular in South Korea.
They are all happily married and live in Seoul now. The current situation there is causing worries & sleepless nights over the tensed war threats by North Korea. I always assured them that my home will always have a place for them to shelter if they have to quickly flee their country. They need not have to worry about food and shelter here. One fella often asked me the prices of the food and rentals in Kuala Lumpur. He was so shocked to hear that a packet of Nasi Lemak is only RM1.20 here!
I often bragged about the famous Korean Fried Chicken sold at One Utama Shopping Mall which is so delicious with long queues daily. They told me that was rubbish fried chicken and should visit them in Seoul, in order to eat many other best fried chickens. I was puzzled and wondered how a better Korean fried chicken tasted? Finally this food Blogger Sean shared about this place where 2 things attracted my eyes! It serves real Korean Fried Chicken and closes at 2.00am daily! I being a real Burung Hantu who love entertaining friends outside till wee hours, this place should fit the bill.
Last night, I decided to treat my wife to a special meal before she flies overseas for her mountain climb trip again. We made our way through massive traffic jams to Sri Hartamas.
The Cafe Chicken
No: 66, First Floor, Jalan 27/70a, Desa Sri Hartamas,
Open 5.00pm-2.00am / Closed on Tuesdays.
(Look out for the News.Com in red colours &
you will easily spot The Cafe Chicken above)
The ambiance and decor is quite unique with well partitioned
brick walls to offer much privacy for big gossipers like me.
We took so long to decide which to order as they have so many
types of fried chickens which come in "Full Order" or "Half & Half".
So I decided to try the popular Sweet & Spicy and the Soya Sauce Chicken.
Wow! I love the Sweet & Spicy chicken which has strong spices with
tinges of bean paste & herbs! My darling prefers the milder Soya Sauce chicken.
We also ordered a bowl of spicy hot Korean Ramen which my wife
always loved. I will be back again soon to try all the other fried chickens!
Yums! The bill was RM71.00.
Happy Long Weekend!
