I’m considering changing the name of this site to Shut Up and Eat Fried Chicken – your go-to source for fried chicken content; all fried chicken, all the time. What can I do when there are literally new chicken places opening up by the hour? I remember when Korean Fried Chicken (KFC) wasn’t even a thing yet. I had Yangnyeom Chicken for the first time 12 years ago at one of my favourite spots, Chez Hwang (closed) – a family run spot in N.D.G.
They explained that it was almost like General Tao. I was sold before tao. But it was so much more than just a lazy equivalent. The batter, the fact that it came on the bone, the sauce. Then came the different variations! It didn’t stop. Places like Mon Ami, Comon, Dawa, Corilla, and Olivia’s Authentic Chicken are proof now of how far yangnyeom Chicken has come and where it’s going. To add to the list, this week I checked out the newest Korean fried chicken spot in Saint-Henri, Les Crazy Chickens.
