Cuisine: Korean/Fried Chicken
Tues, 12/22/2015, 6:30pm walk-in
Fried chicken is one of the tastiest foods on the planet. The skin of the chicken is fried crisp, keeping the juices held within the moist and succulent meat (unless it's overly fried). So when my friend suggested we hit up one of the most popular and authentic Korean fried chicken spots in our hood, it was only natural I agree to the lovely idea.
BBQ Chicken is apparently one of the biggest fried chicken franchises in Korea. They are known for cooking up healthy fried chicken because of their use of olive oil as their cooking oil (I'd like to think this is true but I know fried chicken is never healthy). Whether the chicken is healthy or not, it certainly is quite tasty and wasn't at all greasy.

Overall, BBQ Chicken is a great alternative to your everyday KFC (and tastes better too)! The chicken skin is crispy, the meat is moist, and the condiments as well as the sauces complement the chicken nicely. With the New Year just starting and resolutions kicking in, I would like to stick to the healthier version of fried chicken and pick something cooked in olive oil.
