대포찜닭 Daepo chicken

After work one day we made our way into Seoul to catch a musical and to have dinner at 대포찜닭. It’s on the third floor and has a fun chicken theme, which makes sense since they sell chicken. I just didn’t realize seeing all the angry chickens to be concerned for my mouth. They have help yourself side dishes of pickled radish (my favorite), and a fun corn side dish and help yourself rice.

With work dinners I tend to not understand what we’re ordering but I was so excited for chicken because surprisingly I don’t get a lot of it. I was expecting fried chicken and confused why I kept hearing cheese but it turned out a lot more like 닭갈비 (dakgalbi) which is spicy.  It was super impressive when it came out at first.

It was covered in cheese with a cute chicken looking egg sitting on top. It was filled with all sorts of things like quail eggs and dumplings, potatoes and chicken. But wow was it too spicy for me. I managed to eat as much as I could before just retreating to the side dishes and rice. So if you  love spicy foods and chicken this is probably heaven to you. They also serve and mix in seafood.

We went to the대포찜닭 near 혜화 (hyehwa) station.
