The restaurant was already filling up at a rather early dinner time of 5.45 pm.
Our hearts kinda stopped for a beat when one of the servers told us they'd run out of fried chicken due to the sheer number of people coming for it, but quickly returned to normal when she came back from the kitchen to tell us that there was fried chicken (hallelujah!), but we were gonna wait just a little longer for it.
Collective sighs of relief were heard all round.
Susan ordered her favorite jap chae and being a well-seasoned dish it was, disappeared quite quickly. I did wish for more vegetables but that was really just me as a stir-fried vegetable-lover.
Forgotten the name of this sliced beef dish but while I had some misgivings initially, I ended up being pleasantly surprised. The slices were tender and yielded easily to the teeth. I loved pairing it with the onions that still retained some crunchiness. Heaven.
I might have forgotten to take a picture of the ban chan but suffice to say that while there was nothing that blew me away, they were solidly good. Now, here comes the heart (or artery, whichever) stopping bits. Oh hello there, you beautiful, crispy thing!
Yeap! Was a happy camper alright. I was the first to have one and when I bit into it, Amy giggled and said, "Oh my, I can hear the crunch!" Need I say more? Apart from the fact that they were also succulent!
Two servings of fried chicken proved to be an easy task for the four gluttons that were us. We managed to finish them all, with Susan helping me with the skin on my last piece because you know, I wanted to watch my weight LOL. Jokes aside, comparisons between Sparrow Mill's sweet and spicy with Naruone's was inevitable; I hereby declare Sparrow Mill the winner! This is because their sauce wasn't sickeningly sweet or had the consistency that was not unlike glue.
Unlike froyo, I fully welcome the sprouting of more of these Korean fried chicken joints. Sydney, brace yourselves!
