Korean fried chicken and beer. One of the top things to do in Seoul, South Korea.

The Ultimate Night Out

a ZenKimchi tour

7:30 p.m.
Start Location: Hongik University Station

3 Chicken Pubs. Unlimited Beer.

Chicken and beer is an obsession in Korea. It is one of the best ways to enjoy an evening with friends and new acquaintances. It's also a great way to take a plunge into Korean night culture.

This tour is not your typical "chimaek" tour. We don't just drop you off in a park with a bucket of chicken. We take you through the history and future of this uniquely Korean institution.

You'd better get your eating and drinking hat on because we go to THREE chicken pubs in the lively Hongdae area.

The first is a traditional '90s style "chicken hof," where the full-flavored free-range chicken has thin crispy skin with Asian aromatics. We get this three ways--fried, with sauce, and garlic style, where it's smothered in stewed garlic.

The second stop is an old-fashioned barbecued chicken place. It's dark, and quiet, and exudes character. The slightly spicy smoked chicken comes out on a sizzling iron plate, covered with barbecue sauce.

The final stop is on the quirky side--we're in Hongdae after all--themed like a military bunker. The chicken morsels here come with their own sauce and slathered in cheese. We also try some other pub grub goodies while enjoying beer out of military cupware.

So, to break it down

  • Traditional Korean fried chicken hof

  • Trendy military themed chicken pub
