I really get happy when someone signs up for the Chicken & Beer Pub Crawl. I just love Korean chicken and beer. I don’t get to go out for it much these days unless someone signs up. We had five with us this week. The weather was unusually chilly and blustery, but we somehow got through. Here are pics from our first stop. It’s a classic style chicken hof. They do the old school Korean fried chicken, but they have some more modern chickeny hits as well.

From the right is original fried chicken. Then yangnyeom, which is sweet, garlicky, and a little spicy. Then garlic, which is baptized in stewed chopped garlic. Behind it is one of their signature dishes. It’s fried chicken with spicy sea snail noodle salad and some canned peaches. Just felt like ordering it on a whim. Most like it, in fact. Not pictured was some pa dalk–boneless fried chicken on shredded leeks with a peanut glaze.

This all went down with domestic Korean beer. Say what you will about Korean beer, but after the craft beer revolution, I discovered that craft beer doesn’t work well with Korean fried chicken. The old school lager matched it perfectly.

This was the first of three stops. I have no pics because it was just such a fun night. Forgot.
