korean food / seoul / Crazy for chicken! Five of life’s best grilled chicken restaurants with savory flavors – 2972

Just like fashion, food is popular. It's been a few years since “grilled chicken” appeared like a comet on a large stem that was divided into dak-galbi and chicken when it came to “chicken.” “Grilled chicken,” which had an instagrammable appearance and emerged as a “hip” food, broke expectations that it would be popular for a while and became a staple restaurant menu.

“Japanese-style yakitori skewers,” where you can enjoy different flavors and textures by having different grilling times for each part; “Shinheung chicken specialty charcoal-grilled chicken specialty store” where you can enjoy special parts that were previously not enjoyed as grilling, such as chicken neck, salt, root, and cartilage, and enjoy various sauces with various sauces; “charcoal-grilled chicken ribs” that come to mind in Chuncheon; “charcoal-grilled chicken ribs” that are grilled with firewood to remove the fat and add a smoky aroma I lost.

It's a bit difficult to cook chicken over charcoal because it cooks faster than cows or pork, but the chef's cooking skills, which have improved with the level of cuisine, help you enjoy the taste when they are in the most perfect condition. Also, since the meat itself doesn't have a strong flavor and is light, it goes well with sauces freely created by chefs, so you can enjoy a wide variety of flavors from restaurant to restaurant. This week, I'm going to look at a yakitori restaurant in Seoul that is praised as the “grilled chicken of life.”

Chef Cheon Kwan-woong of Koshun, famous for his omakase chicken dish in Apgujeong, is a yakitori restaurant. Chickens grilled on oak trees in the crater next to the entrance are nostalgic. Grilled chicken with mushrooms is devoid of fat, and the flavor of light meat is rich in the aroma of oak wood. The rich red rice is also savory and light. Chicken dung house tempura, which is often deep-fried with sliced green onions mixed with chicken poop, is also a delicacy. The fragrant scent of green onions captures the feeling of tempura. I definitely recommend trying Makguksu, which is made from homemade noodles.

▲Review (Shikigami Sonhatsu ♡): Keiryukan is Chef Ten-Kwan-woong's new restaurant, Yakitori Koshun. Chickens sizzling with oak trees are eye-catching. Other than the crispy grilled chicken on the outside, there are quite a few fusion dishes unique to this place. The chicken platter was made with fresh chicken, so it was so moist and delicious.

A place that reinterprets wood-grilled chicken to create a hip hot flow. The wood-burning oven in front of the store that goes round and round is familiar, but the result on the table is surprisingly modern. The signature menu is “Dongyang Chicken,” which is filled with chorizo and glutinous rice and has a spicy flavor with chili oil sauce and garlic tempura, and “Western Chicken,” which makes use of the herb flavor with pesto sauce and mushroom spinach. The taste of the light and moist chicken and the flavor of the sauce are unusual. “Chicken gaejang,” which has wood-grilled chicken on the yukgaejang bowl noodles, chum yum sauce, and lime, is also popular as a finishing touch.

â–²Review (Little Princess Shikigami 95): The chicken was a bit spicy for my taste, and the western chicken was delicious because the pesto sauce went really well with it. It was quickly sold out. I filled it with glutinous rice, and it was amazing that it was Korean yet had a unique flavor.

This restaurant is so famous that its name comes up first when it comes to yakitori in Seoul. It's not easy to pass by this place just because of the constant grilling of yakitori on a briquette fire outside the store and the savory smell. Finish off the well-cooked skewers, which are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, with a slightly spicy sauce. It's perfectly baked, so you can feel the chewiness. The impressive rich, thick soup made with plenty of gochujang is also popular.

This yakitori restaurant has a comical signboard and menu with a retro B-grade sensibility, but the flavor of the food is extraordinary. This is the second branch of “Atari,” a yakitori yakitori omakase in Seongsu-dong. Along with yakitori using various parts of the chicken, such as thigh, fascia, saliva, sand, cartilage, skin, and tail, there are light side dishes that go well with alcoholic beverages. The skewers, which are cooked right away with skill, have a smoky flavor and a delicious, juicy texture. Seong Si Kyung's Restaurant recently appeared on YouTube and made it even more difficult to make a reservation, but it's a must-see place.

â–²Location: 11, Seongdeokjeong 17-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul

â–²Opening hours: 18:00 – 24:00 every day, closed on Tuesdays

â–²Price: Coach special starting at 10,000 won, thighs 3500 won, mentaiko 8,000 won

â–²Testimonial (I think it's going to be raining): The reservation seemed to be taking an app class and a walk-in class. As a special, they cook it for themselves, but if you have a budget, you should be careful not to exceed it… hahahahaha, you might be surprised when you get a receipt when you eat carefully~ The skewers were very kind and explained, so I was happy to eat it.

A charcoal-grilled chicken specialty store with industrial visuals. It opened in early 2020, and although it's been quite a while since it was in operation, it's still a popular restaurant that still has waits due to its unchanging taste. You can enjoy grilling parts such as salt, sauce, and chicken neck. It is characterized by a juicy, chewy flavor that goes through a priming process immediately after ordering. Fresh salt and prosciutto are also popular side dishes. It's also a good idea to enjoy the sweet flavor of charcoal-grilled green onions by adding “green onions.”

â–²Location: 374 Toegye-ro, Jung-gu, Seoul

â–²Business hours: Weekdays 17:00 – 24:00, Saturday 16:00 – 24:00, Sunday 16:00 – 22:00

â–²Testimonial (Ondong is small and pretty): Be sure to eat chicken neck. It had a unique texture and was delicious. Among the salt condiments, salt was delicious. They chopped it and grilled it all on the table, so it's easy to eat.
