Seoul Orizin - Haymarket

Deep fried chicken has replaced frozen yoghurt as the current trending food in Sydney.. Anywhere and any time you walk.. One can simply find stalls selling deep fried chicken either in Taiwanese style or even Korean style..
One day.. I walked around the city with Mr. Nomnom and we were impressed with so many KFC restaurants we found! Mr. Nomnom said back then we would go straight to Arisun if we're craving for KFC.. But now? So many brands and options to choose from~~ Woohoo!

Seoul Orizin is located in Haymarket (close to the UTS Insearch and across the road from Menya ramen).. Judging from its location.. I bet it can attract uni students and locals especially during lunch time as they also have special lunch menu ranging from $10 to 

Their side dishes (banchan) was pretty simple.. Kimchi, Seaweed Salad, Fish Cake and Blanched Brocolli Salad.. Unfortunately, when we ate their brocolli.. It was not fresh anymore (you know the smell when broccoli is going to go bad).. 

We ordered Seafood Pancake (Haemul Pajeon) to start with while waiting for our chicken to arrive..  The batter was light and not too oily.. All the prawns, squids and scallions were also evenly divided on top of the pancake..

Another snack we ordered was their Rice Cake (Tteokbokki).. We didn't really enjoy this one as we felt like the sauce was too runny and tasted like the instant one.. 

The one we've been waiting for.. It's the Soy and Garlic Chicken.. Each piece of the chicken was coated with the sauce.. We heard the oomph and yummy sound as we bit into it.. The crispiest and crunchiest deep fried chicken as the result of double frying method was definitely mouthwatering.. LOL

Our second portion was this Snowing Cheese Chicken.. A deep fried chicken (I think the original one) was topped with some cheese flakes.. The cheese thingie was addictive! Ms. NH couldn't stop asking for more sprinkle on her chicken. I think they blend the cheese with some sugar or corn syrup.. You can taste both saltiness and sweetness from the combination~

One of our friend, Ms. GO, said that this chicken reminded her of the one she ate at Incredible Chicken.. Others thought their whole chicken was smaller in serving size compared to other places they'd eaten before..

Eating KFC is not complete without a hot bubbling Army Base Stew (Budae-jjigae).. It's a spicy, savoury Korean-American fusion dish made from a rich broth, Korean hot pepper paste, kimchi, rice cakes, spam and sausages.. 

We will keep coming back to try their lunch specials for sure.. More than 20 selections you can choose from and definitely we won't miss their Bulgogi Stew and Jjajangmyeon (Black Bean Noodle) next time.. LOL
