Food Post- Chicken noodles (닭한마리)


We came to this restaurant about 2 years ago with a friend, we really enjoyed it but for some reason we never went back.

I was desperate this weekend to try some new food so we decided to venture back. It can be very daunting visiting a restaurant in Korea for the first time or after a long period of time, especially when you aren’t with a Korean.

Usually there are different stages involved with a Korean meal and if you do something wrong you end up being the laughing stock of the restaurant or even worse, you get a scolding from the people working there.

Luckily, with this restaurant, the server does all of the work for you.

The first stage of this delicious meal is when they bring out a big pot full of chicken (all parts of the chicken), potatoes, rice cakes, greens and more.

We had to wait patiently for it to cook for a while. Then the server filled our dishes for us. After asking us if spicy was okay, he filled it with a delicious spicy red sauce, garlic and soy sauce. There was cabbage on the side which we could mix in with our sauce and then the chicken was ready to eat.

The chicken mixed with the sauce and cabbage was so delicious!

Once we ate nearly all of the chicken it was time to add some kalguksu noodles in with the remaining chicken and broth. I’ve already written a post about these delicious noodles here.

But when they were put in to this dish it was just magical. It is the perfect chicken noodle soup, salty and full of flavour!

We can’t wait to bring our friends here next time.

We left with our hearts happy and our bellies full.

  1. That looks delicious. I loved eating in Korean restaurants and having no idea what anything was. We’d always just say bring us something and that was about it. Food lottery! Probably not a good idea for anyone with allergies or anyone who is squeamish about food.

    1. haha, yeah me too!
      We’ve gotten used to going to places and randomly pointing and hoping it turns out good. I have to say that most of the time it does, I feel lucky that neither myself or my husband have any allergies or anything!
