In a year, around 66 billion âchickensâ are consumed worldwide. Chicken, which is considered a staple ingredient in health food, contains a large amount of nutrients
such as unsaturated fatty acids, B vitamins, and amino acids, and is known to have many benefits such as preventing adult diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and relieving fatigue. Because of the light flavor of chicken, which is
low in fat and high in protein compared to pork and beef, it is widely used in various dishes. If you go down to Jeollanam-do, you can find a local chicken course meal that offers local chicken raised in
the countryside cooked in a variety of different parts. The beginning of chicken course cooking dates back to Haenam in 1970. Starting with a small restaurant that used to sell mizutaki chicken, it has now become a local
food representative of Namdo, to the extent that Haenam Chicken Cuisine Village has sprung up.
Namdo-style chicken course dishes are made from 4 to 5 types of local chicken and presented to customers one after the other. The first one is fresh chicken yukhoe. Chicken
yukhoe is finely chopped chicken breast and chicken dung and seasoned with sesame oil and salt sauce. The second one is a crispy grilled chicken. The wings, chicken feet, and chicken legs are seasoned only with salt to accentuate the light
flavor. The third is chicken yakiniku, where chicken marinated in a sauce is stir-fried. You can enjoy the rich seasoning and the charm of the chewy chicken. The fourth is chicken mizutaki, which has a
rich broth. The softly boiled meat and the deep flavor of the soup are excellent. The fifth and final one is finished with soft chicken porridge. It is usually garnished with
mung beans to add savory flavor and strength. The transformation of chicken into yukhoe, grilled meat, and even yakiniku is innocent! Here are 5 of the best local chicken course
restaurants in Namdo that serve a full course of free-range chicken.
1. âOK Deer Farm Gardenâ in Hwasun, a savory flavor created by charcoal grilling

âOK Deer Farm Gardenâ is located at the foot of a winding mountain path leading up to Mudeungsan Mountain. The green trees surrounding the store add a nice touch. The signature menu is âgrilled wild chicken with charcoal,â where the owner immediately catches chicken raised on the
farm and presents it to the customer. First, the chicken tenderloin is mixed with sesame oil, and the
chewy, crunchy chicken sashimi are served to enhance the taste buds. When the charcoal-grilled plate heats up, you can put chicken trimmed on each part and grill it to eat. Chicken, which is grown in the mountains and is of an extraordinary
size, has strong flesh on it, so it's fun to eat it. The combination of the crunchy, savory skin and moist flesh give the
chicken its natural flavor.

â²Testimonial (Eating Fox Star):
The chicken is so big that if two people go, they can only eat half a chicken. If you grill it over charcoal, it's so delicious and aromatic that you can eat it without any other special sauce.
No matter how full I am, I always make it die at the end, and it goes great with kimchi here.

A âcountry houseâ is a place where you can enjoy various parts of a chicken at once, from lean meat to entrails. In addition to the main food, only domestic ingredients such as
red pepper powder and garlic in the side dishes are used. Course meals are priced based on one chicken rather than the number of people, so you can enjoy them at a reasonable price. The signature
menu is the âCountry House Eumnamchon Chicken Course,â which starts with a rich platter of chicken, pork sashimi, condiments, and boiled entrails. You can experience a
variety of textures and flavors by cooking in different ways. After that, the raw kishimen soup simmered with chicken skin and bean sprouts, the sweetly steamed mizutaki, and the savory
nutritious porridge are served one after the other to complete the grandeur of the meal.

â²Price: Country house
Um Nam-chon chicken course (medium) 60,000 won, lacquer chicken course meal (medium) 70,000 won
â²Review (Shikigami HaribotheLove): A place well worth visiting from afar! It was amazing how many dishes could be created from one chicken. Even the chicken
yukhoe was delicious without being bitter. Unlike other chicken course restaurants, the fried chicken served was unique, but it was a delicacy!
3. Chicken yakiniku with a hearty flavor, Cheongsong âBullochon Restaurantâ

âBullochon Restaurantâ is
a cozy yet intimate atmosphere created by remodeling a family home. It's run by two elderly grandma and grandpa, so you must make a reservation before visiting. The signature menu is â
Chicken Fire Mizutaki,â where you can enjoy yakiniku chicken and mizutaki at the same time. âChicken yakiniku,â which is reminiscent of kimchi
chijimi, has a shiny
surface that stimulates the salivary glands. Finely chopped breast is mixed with condiments such as red pepper paste , soy sauce, and pepper, then aged one day at a time in the freezer and refrigerator and baked on a grill. I added Cheongsong Sinchon medicinal water containing iron and carbonic acid to perfectly capture the unique flavor of chicken.
âChicken mizutaki,â which is thoroughly cooked with mung beans, contains a whole large
chicken leg, making it a great place to finish a hearty meal.
Gyeongdong-ro, Jinbo-myeon, Cheongsong-gun, Gyeongbuk
â²Opening hours: 10:00 â 20:00 every day
mizutaki 13,000 won, chicken wings 15,000 won
â²Testimonial (Gobble Shoulder+_+): When you make a reservation, the store often can't add anything, so be sure to order plenty. The yakiniku is red in color, but it's not spicy at all, and the umami is just right. The mizutaki chicken legs are also completely soft ~
The chicken wings and shoulder roast were delicious with the sweet and salty sauce!
4. âHosanjeongâ in Haenam, a health food that fills the mind with health

âHosanjeongâ uses chicken and duck to provide healthy health food. The refreshing yet clean flavor of the food without using chemical seasonings is appealing.
The signature menu is the âVillage Chicken Course,â which consists of dishes and meals such as yukhoe, cast mackerel, grilled meat, and mizutaki using free-range chicken. Among the courses, âJijong Chicken
Jumuluk,â made by stir-frying vegetables and chicken with a sweet and spicy sauce, is the most popular. The sweet flavor of the vegetables and the fatty flavor of the chicken blend into the sauce, creating a heavy umami flavor.
Recently, they have also launched meal menus that are sold only at lunchtime, such as champon and jajangmyeon, which are very popular. Business hours change frequently, so it's recommended
that you check your phone before visiting.
â²Location: Hosanjeong, 140 Gosan-ro, Haenam-eup,
11:00 to 20:00 every day; opening hours vary frequently, so it's recommended to visit after calling
â²Price: Village chicken
course 60,000 won, lacquer chicken 60,000 won
â²Review (IU-chan Shikigin): I ate chicken sashimi for the first time, and I was amazed at the texture and taste like eating tuna sashimi. If you wrap it in lettuce and eat it with rice, it will
keep getting in. I didn't expect to eat the champon sold as a lunch menu, but I was surprised that it was better than any Chinese restaurant, so I think it would be a good idea to try it~
5. Fresh food that fills your mouth, Yeosu's 'medicinal fishery mountain'

âYaksu Sanjangâ is
famous as a hidden restaurant among Yeosu locals. The combination of quaint buildings and plants scattered all over the
place makes you feel like you've come to play at a rural grandmother's house. If you order the signature menu âCharcoal-grilled chicken,â a plate of well-prepared chicken goulash
comes first. The pale pink chicken breast and reddish chicken tenders convey freshness at a glance. If you eat yukgai, which has a subtle sweetness that spreads as you chew, you will prepare a free-range chicken that has been cleaned of fat. The chicken cooked on a thick charcoal grill is deeply infused with the mild aroma of the fire, so you
can enjoy an even richer flavor. Please note that the store is currently temporarily closed due to circumstances.
â²Location: 82 Hansansa-gil,
â²Opening hours: 09:30 â 22:00 every day
Charcoal-grilled chicken 60,000 won, chicken porridge 1,000 won
â²Testimonial (Attraction of Shikigin Kwon): Chicken sashimi dipped in oil sauce is a dish you can't eat unless you eat it right away ~ Charcoal-grilled chicken is delicious even if you eat it alone, but it's even more delicious when eaten with side dishes made by the boss himself, such as pickled sesame leaves or chives ~ If you visit Yeosu
, be sure to stop by!
