The eating never ends… We were really on a binge! Would this be the final stop after Samgyetang? You’ll find out soon enough but for now, we’d continue strolling the Hongdae Area for some “it’s-now-or-never ” shopping as we leave the next day! – Semi Han in “Seoul Eats – Pojangmacha 포장마차

We were walking out onto the main road to look for a cab. Everywhere we went, within a stone’s throw, we saw small and cozy Korean-style pubs serving fried or oven-baked chicken and draft beer (some are freshly brewed, too). – Semi Han in “치맥 – Chimeg Anyone?

So at this stone’s throw, we chanced upon another KFC! Not Kentucky but Korean Fried Chicken, remember?

Time to dig into the Originals which we preferred.

See how tired he was but still not willing to go back for we have only one more night in Seoul.
We’re eating to our hearts’ content!

He was, perhaps, a vendor in Hongdae shopping area.
I hesitated but Vanessa said if I don’t ask, I’ll regret!
This was the second time we approached someone for street portraiture in Seoul, Korea.
Sure glad I took her advice for this friendly chap graciously granted me a few clicks.
Nope, he didn’t dance for me but he displayed!

치맥 – Chimeg Anyone?

The skin on these chicken pieces were not as crunchy as the one we had previously (see link below) but they were still very crisp and flavoursome, tender and juicy. The sweet sauce was well… Sweet! So I preferred the original but it was good to have tried the basted ones.

The black sesame mayonnaise was chilled and lent a different mouthfeel when dipping the hot chicken into it. They gelled well but again, sweet! When it comes to sugar, my quirkiness act up – sometimes I like it sometimes I don’t. I’ll never know till I put them into my mouth.

The sweetcorn on hotplate was a novelty but I would not order it if I’m on my own because…. You got it right, sweet! 😉

    Your first sentence, “the eating never ends” would make a great name for a food blog. And now that you’re doing street portraiture and photography, maybe that’s what I’ll have to start doing. 🙂

    Fried chicken… *drool* 🙂

      Lol… And why not? After all you do eat everyday. And then you can teach me how to take great food photos! 😀

      I went for fireworks yesterday, managed to get a good shot if I may say so (shameless, i know) but I don’t know how to remove the smoke away 😦
