Chicken "Gangnam Style"

I was amused to see a new place open up in San Mateo (4th, I think) - "Gangnam Chicken". Opportunism like that is what makes capitalism great, right?

    Well, apparently there is a neighborhood of Seoul named Gangnam. Perhaps there is a connection.

      Tripeler - I don't think there is any mystery about the derivation of the name: look on YouTube for "Gangnam Style" videos.

      I'm sure it's just a tongdak place.

        Heh, the sign outside depicts a chicken with sunglasses dancing with its arms crossed. Clever marketing.

        It is indeed a Korean Fried Chicken place and it's on 3rd St. I peeked in yesterday-- the style of KFC seems to be the kind where the batter is heavy and the saucing a little gloopy.

      Looking at the logo mark, it certainly does seem to be a ripoff of Psy.

        He said he wouldn't sue.
