During our trip to Seoul, we went around Myeongdong, looking for snacks to bring back to the hotel. We chanced upon this shop called Two Two Chicken with a cute logo as well as pictures of what they served. We peeked thru the window at how the chef was preparing the fried chicken and decided to take a chance. Two Two Chicken is one of the leading brands in Korea with over 500 stores.
Another good thing about the place is that they speak a smidgen of English as well as possess a menu written in English, which made the whole ordering experience much much easier.
We ordered 1 whole Soy Garlic chicken for take out, brought it back to the hotel (forgot to take pictures). Irene and I initially just wanted to have a piece each, but after one bite we had to get more and more. By the time we realized it, there was only 1 piece of chicken left in the box, which we promptly polished off.
We shared the good news with Fran and Paul as well as the others in our group. On our last night in Seoul, the 5 of us decided to have dinner at Two Two Chicken.The place is more pub, where they also serve beer, and a far cry from the family restaurant feel of Bon Chon here.
We of course had to order the Soy Garlic chicken (W15,000 or around P570), its served with a side of shredded cabbage with a ketchup like dressing. This one tasted even better that the take out we had, and then we saw the approving smiles of Fran and Paul.
For more variety this time, Fran picked the Garlic Sauce Chicken. The chicken looks more like big free range chickens than the usual kind we have here. I think this adds lots of umami to the chicken meat in addition to the coating. You can really see crushed garlic on the chicken. Yummy but I still like my soy garlic one better.
Doing my research I found out that there used to be a branch of Two Two Chicken across UA&P in Pearl drive, a stone’s throw away from us but upon checking found out that it was there no more.
Going on a trip to Korea? I highly recommend you try out Two Two Chicken, you definitely won’t regret it.
