Korean Fried Chicken
There is a legit Korean Fried Chicken place now in Austin.
It is at Somunanjib next to the Karaoke place in the Han Yang shopping complex on Lamar and Justin.
They source their seasoning and batter from Korea. I think its $16 for 14 pieces or so, so enough for 3 hungry people or 4 regular people.
I only got the spicy version while I was there but it is garlicy, super spicy, with a faint sweetness, and super crisp.
Together Restaurant has also been serving Korean Fried Chicken for a while. They have no sauce, and sweet/spicy sauced versions. You get a whole chicken for about $12 - 15. Plus the banchan. They have very good banchan. Haven't been in a while, but the place should still be open. Its next to where the Mongolian BBQ on North Lamar used to be. North Lamar and Rutland I think.
Awesome news, thanks.
There seems to be several Korean places in Austin that don't have a prominent sign transliterated in English, only a large sign in Hangul. Jib is a house, right? What does the rest of the name Somunanjib mean?
