Godly Korean Fried Chicken has hit the masses in Adelaide as one of this year’s biggest food crazes.
The crunchy, crispy, salty exterior, countered by the juicy interior is a match made in literal heaven.
While Adelaide is home to an array of eateries serving up the delicious deep-fried dish, it can be hard to whittle down the ever-growing list of places serving the frying up the seriously finger-lickin’ good snack!
Here’s our list of the top spots for Korean Fried Chicken in Adelaide.
Wingman is Adelaide’s newest Korean Fried Chicken to take our city by storm.
Their chicken is cooked to perfection, with the coating presenting an almost paper-like skin that isn’t heavily battered.
Deliciously seasoned with an array of Korean-style spices, this Asian style of cooking chicken has proved sought-after amongst western cultures, challenging the originally popular Kentucky fried chicken style.
