Chicken has become Korean food over time. From fried chicken with glistening, moist chicken flesh under a crispy flavorful chicken skin, seasoned chicken with spicy sweetness full of soft, savory taste, oriental chicken roast with log-smoked flavor without a drop of oil to retain its original taste, to soy sauce chicken sprinkled with sweet, savory soy sauce seasoning. As you can see, there are countless types of chicken. Though there are so many delicious chicken restaurants for all the global chicken lovers planning to visit Korea, we cannot introduce them all. Therefore, we have handpicked 4 delicious chicken restaurants for you.
The restaurant Lee Young-ja, the top celebrity in Korean muckbang, loves- Hannam Oriental Roast Chicken
It is the restaurant that made the famous quote, "Stuff down some oriental chicken to smoothly fix your bloated stomach". It is a certified restaurant frequently visited by multiple celebrities and embassy employees that even include corporate CEOs. Korean oriental chicken, a whole chicken roasted rolling over a fire skewered in a rotisserie like kebab, is enjoyed by many people who visit the place to enjoy the plain, healthy chicken with subtle charcoal scent. If the best friend of oil-fried chicken is radishes pickled in vinegar, the best paring of oriental chicken roast is kimchi. Put a roughly ripped piece of kimchi over the chicken and all the stress after a hard day’s work will be relieved.
