Korean style fried chicken
I was eating at Chez Hwang (korean restaurant on Upper Lachine) the other day, and I noticed the table next to mine ordered what it seemed to be a fried chicken dish. Has anyone ever tried it?? Is it a special korean dish?? The plate was HUGE.
It's called "Yang Nyum chicken" on the menu. I tried it for the first time last week and it was really good. The chicken is crispy and the sauce it was in was sweet and spicy .
To my knowledge, they are the only korean restaurant serving this kind of korean fried chicken.
New York Times covered Korean fried chicken some time ago here: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/07/dining/07fried.html
Also, there are some restaurants in Toronto that specialize in this dish which, from my understanding, is often very spicy. Found a Toronto Chowhound thread:
