The Frypan menu

If you like fried chicken, chips and beer and you are in South Korea, forget Kentucky Fried Chicken and give “The Frypan” a shot! You won’t be disappointed! The Frypan started as a University project and turned into a pretty successful franchise which you can find all over Seoul. After a busy day i was really in the mood for some chicken and beer, so i went to Yangjae-dong to pick up Sujin and we went to the Frypan together.

The Frypan salad

Usually i am the kind of guy who leaves the salad untouched but this salad was really, really good and tasted great! I was wondering a lil bit that they didn’t offer the salad as a stand alone menu, only as a side dish next to the chicken. So pick up the set menu to get also this delicious salad!

But let’s forget the salad now and focus why we are really here for: freshly fried potato chips toppped with boneless fried chicken! Yay! That’s what i call a menu and believe me you need some good appetite to finish this! 😉 The chicken is crispy and tastes great, especially with the garlic sauce! The spicy sauce is also really good but i like it more as a dip for the potato chips.

Mika says: Great place if you want to eat some fried chicken. I’ve been to KFC here already and believe me, you will do yourself a favor if you check out the “The Frypan”. We paid less than 30.000 Won for the menu and the beer, so around 20 Euro. Not cheap but a reasonable price for a tasty chicken, chips and a great salad.

맥주 Maekju

If you are in the mood to drink more beer like us yesterday, keep your eyes open for this magical word: 맥주 😀 Romanized it’s called “maekju” and means beer! We were really lucky because just across the Frypan was this great beer place, where you can grab the beer by yourself and it was really, really cheap! The perfect place to get drunk! 😛

It isn’t the typical drinking place because usually you need to order something to eat too besides drinking. But in this place you could even bring your food along with you, grab a beer and enjoy your evening. Definitely i need to look for such a place in Sinchon too, it would immediately become my second living room! 😀

Packed subway in Seoul

And something you should get used to, if you are going home in the early evening. The “Super-packed-there-is-no-space-for-breathing” subway. It was even hard for me to put out the iPhone to shoot this picture. Priceless experience, especially if somebody close to you farted as well 😛

    It’s always horrible to use subway (especially 2nd line around Gangnam area) in the evening! We can show off our great public transportation system, but at the same time, it’s too packed!!!
