Appetisers and sauces (Free)
Appetisers of cucumber and radish. Sauces of salsa and mushroom sauce for the chicken or appetisers.

Chicken sausages (KRW13,000)
Four different types of sausages – spicy, original, a little more salty. This comes with a bunch of fries. Very potato-ish and crispy. Lovely!

Crispy baked chicken and Garlic chicken (KRW19,900)
A mixed of top selling flavours. You must first eat the crispy basked chicken. It’s crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Garlic chicken is marinated with BBQ sauced chicken with a mild garlic taste. The meat is also tender.

Crispy chicken with special sauce (KRW16,900)
Do you like to eat KFC popcorn chicken? This is the bigger piece version of popcorn chicken. Dipping it in the special sauce which tasted like sweet sauce, it’s delicious.

If you’re onion lover (which I’m not), have the onions! I was told that there are sweet.

If you’re not tolerable with spiciness, be prepared for “sausage” lips. :p

Bongchu jjimdak (Large) (KRW35,000)
This is a very appetising dish although spicy! The chicken is very deeply marinated with the sauce and tender. There are various vegetables such as potato, carrot, dried chillies and spring onions and also with noodles. All enough for 6-7 persons.

I was told that the original jjimdak is many times much more spicy than this. “-_-

Don’t let them take away the remaining sauce and add the next dish!

Gonggibap (Stone rice) (KRW1,000)
It’s just a normal crispy rice but it’s superb when it’s added on to the remaining sauce.

After all the spiciness, you can cool it with a bowl of cold kimchi (non-spicy).
