A native Korean chef introduces his fried chicken recipe to the Thai palate

A former chef at Seoul-based Jordan Chicken, Doo Hyeok  Choi, moved from his hometown to plant roots in Bangkok with Choi Choi Chicken, a restaurant in new On Nut food hub Habito Mall that introduces a recipe for real Korean fried chicken. The secret is in the sauces, apparently, and in Choi Choi Chicken, there are three to choose from: original, spicy and honey garlic. The restaurant also serves Thai-Korean fusion dishes like tom yum-kimchi or buchujeon (Korean pancake with garlic chives), chicken wing sets that come with rice and  chicken wings, rice and five side dishes (B229/B219), ttokochi (fried rice cakes in homemade spicy sauce, B35/piece). Astonishingly, it may be the only venue in Bangkok where you can experience somtum (B100) prepared by a Korean chef. All dishes are served with free side dishes including homemade Korean pickles, Chinese beansprouts, Chinese cabbage kimchi, radish kimchi and chopped potatoes. To bring you a little closer to South Korea, the restaurant plastered its walls with graffiti-like depictions of the iconic Namdaemun Palace, and filled up the space  with modern wooden furniture, just like what you see in modern restaurants across Seoul.
