Nice hotpot but fried chicken needs improvement

Walked into the restaurant and realised few tables were waiting to be served. The place is run by Korean n they seems inexperience in running the business; service was slow. We had to take our own menu and drinks and we had to ask for the small side appetiser to be served.

We ordered a ham and luncheon hotpot served with noodles and vegetables. This dish was quite nice, soup was piping hot and not too salty, a little sweet n quite flavourful especially when the noodle n vegetables are all soaked in the red-orangy soup.

We also ordered the sampler fried chicken which consisted of 3 pcs original flavour chicken, 3 pcs spicy chicken and 3 pcs soy chicken. Honestly you can skip this dish. The Original ones tasted very normal and the skin wasn't crispy. The Spicy ones lacked flavour; sweet and a little salty. The Soy tasted like some sweet sauce and again it lacked flavour. I think the chicken marination needs alot of improvement since Korean fried chicken is in the trend now especially among younsters.

fair and just ok

the food was not bad but i cant say its good either. the service is above normal. the service crews and all attentive and very particular to know what you specifically want to order. they were shorthanded that day but i guess they handled the crowd so well.

If you love chicken scratchings

Boneless or bone-in, the skin on this District 21 Korean restaurant's fried chicken is crisp, dry and only slightly oily. It’s coated with a thin shell of flour, so the flavour and texture of the scratchings-like skin is retained. The skin holds the dense, honey-like sauce well too – the Yum Yum sauce is sweet, very slightly spicy, and mildly garlicky; the Soy is equally thick and sweet, balanced out by the saltiness of the soy; and the garlic chicken is the spiciest, with fresh chopped garlic mixed into the Yum Yum or Soy sauces. Past the light, crisp skin are moist chunks of thoroughly marinated chicken (plenty of thigh meat) so you will still be satisfied if you pick the non-sauced original. You can ask for the sampler platter (boneless chicken – original, yum yum and soy chicken; nine pieces for $20) to come with the garlic versions (on its own, 11 bone-in pieces for $17; boneless $19), but you’ll be charged extra for requesting four instead of three types. Be warned, this casual 40-plus seater gets packed with residential clients, even on a Monday – they serve other dishes, of course.
