There is a small alley in Suwon (수원) that is famous for its fried chicken (통닭).
There were many places to choose from but we decided to go to 장안통닭. Apparently the store has been on numerous TV shows. While we were there, the owner received a call that a filming crew was going to come to film for a show.
There is an open window so that the store is adequately aerated (and the smell of fried chicken tempts many to enter). They use fresh chicken and it’s always made to order.
Showing what was broadcasted.
The prices are good. We ordered half fried and half seasoned.
A tip I learned!
Use two forks.
One to hold on to the chicken and the other to “rip” and eat.
This way your hands stay clean.
But I think the best way to eat chicken is to just go at it with your fingers 😀
They give you pickled radish and flour puffs to snack on while you wait.
Flour puff = typical snack while drinking
This is 닭똥집or chicken gizzards over garlic that they give you.
Finally the chicken! I was so good. There was a hint of cinnamon in the seasoned one. It was very sweet and sticky. The fried chicken was very crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
