Order a pint of cold beer which cost 50-60% lesser compared to Singapore is really a good deal. Enjoying the cold beer in Winter is amazing, because the beer will never “tear” from the burning weather.

Honestly, this is not the best fries I’ve eaten. It is less crispy on the outside and missing that crunch. However, the sauce is really interesting.

We taste mainly the honey, garlic component is the seasoning powder which they give pixel dust amount only.

You do need to wait for awhile before the fried chicken is serve since they prepare it only when you order. Fresh fried chicken really taste amazing!!! I Guess this is the best fried chicken I had in Korea, super tender and juicy.

Question, where is this place? I remember walking and turning quite a fair bit in the alleys.

We had to wait for a while before there are tables available, and it was late at night, around 11:30 pm. Really amazed by the crowd that last even after midnight.

If I ever going back Korea and crave for good fried chicken and local beer, this is my TO-GO place!
