One of the biggest food trends to hit the Korean peninsula in recent years has been that of chimaek, or fried chicken and beer. The latest restaurant to put its on twist on the classic is Brew 3.15, tucked away in an obscure corner of Insadong. The focus here is all about the chicken, which is fried using a Southern approach more so than a Korean one. Floury and tender, it's even better with the homemade sauces that incorporate local ingredients and flavors. Brew 3.15's chicken pairs perfectly with the craft beers on tap. Get a sampler to try a few, or take our suggestion and go straight for the Ryepa, an American-style rye strong ale produced in Busan. Don't miss out on the Totchos!, a messy mountain of tator tots smothered in meat, cheese and sour cream, or the Fried Chocopie with Ice Cream, an addicting tribute to one of Korea's favorite snacks.
