Forget hot wing places, Korean Chicken is the real fire bomb...

Hungry for some spicy fried chicken that will clear your sinuses and soothe your soul?  Try some Korean fried chicken.  Steph and I went to a place with many names.  You might find it as Austin BBQ, Somunanjib, Korean Food and Drinks or they even have their name in Korean on the sign.

They'll bring you water up front and if you order the hot chicken you'll need several glasses.  Don't worry, that's healthy and good for you.  We stuck with water.  If you order chicken there's enough for several people.  It comes on the bone and steaming hot from the wok.  We took a bunch home because we tried the hot and the regular styles.  They serve it with a little bowl of pickled radishes so if you want sides be sure to order some appetizers.  The hot chicken is really hot and really tasty.  By my second or third piece it was sweating on my forehead and my nose was nice a clear.  If you've ever eaten in a Korean restaurant you'll probably remember the sound of everyone sniffing from their sinuses clearing due to the hot spices.  If not, you're missing out.  Back to the chicken, the regular style was still a little spicy but more from garlic.  Again very tasty.  I liked the pickled radishes but Steph didn't care for them.  They did break up the heat a bit.

I think it would have been better with a few beers.  A standard pilsner or lighter lager would go down well with the hot stuff.  I'll have to remember that next time.

So until next time, annyonghi kyesayo.
