Hot and spicy Korean fried chicken. Hmm – where have I heard that before? Well, I definitely like the real thing that I’ve had in the past – K-fried chicken is really the bomb – especially the spicy – and if you get a chance to try it you’ll be pretty happy about it I think.
They kind of twice-fry it and then add all this tasty stuff. We used to go to a place where you could get it either with or without bones and they’d give you a ton of it. We’d get the honey garlic one they made and it was extremely good. They also had cream cheese topokki with crab and garlic… Wish they hadn’t gone out of business – should have been there forever really but I guess not enough people found out about it.
Well, let’s give this one a try – sounds tasty!

The noodle block.
The sauce sachet.
Lots of liquid.
The flake sachet.
Crunchy little bits.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles came out nicely – only 2.5 minutes to cook – not bad. The flavor was a spicy and sweet kind of topokki sauce almost – really actually reminded me a little of the Korean fried chicken I’ve had before. The included crunchy bits on top were a very nice touch. 4.0 out of 5.0 stars. UPC bar code 031146039036.
