El Jannah, Granville

November 17, 2014 1 comment

Sorry for the lack of post, it certainly has been a crazy couple of weeks and I am currently in Sydney – can’t believe I am actually leaving this week though, the past 2 weeks has gone WAY TOO FAST!!!! I’m here in Sydney catching up with family as well as work and work has been pretty crazy also but it is always nice catching up with friends.

Now, can you believe that I have NEVER EVER been to El Jannah until just recently? Where have I been living all this time you ask? Don’t fret, I was asking myself that also! We arrived at El Jannah (Granville branch) at about 7pm and the place was packed! There were so many people eating sitting down already, people waiting for their food and of course us waiting for a table. We finally scored one and the food came out not long after that.

It really does not require any introduction, that garlic sauce – seriously, it’s like crack and it was so addictive I couldn’t stop!

The chips – both Dragon and C couldn’t stop eating it. I am pretty sure both girls ate more than the adults, and was is it with kids and hot chips? As soon as they see it, they just go berserk!

We were here for one thing, the chicken, and the chicken did not disappoint. It was succulent and juicy, and the skin, I had to fight Dragon for them – she kept asking for more! I wanted more but she beat me to it! We ordered 2 whole chicken and yes, we DEMOLISHED IT! I am pretty sure Dragon ate a bit more than a quarter herself. So this was definitely a winner for her!

Definitely worth visiting again and I can’t wait to be reunited with that garlic sauce! Probably a good thing that I don’t live near El Jannah, it would definitely be a weekly visit!

Kyochon Chicken, Dongdaemun, Seoul, Korea

I was on the hunt for the best fried chicken in Korea. We were there for 5 days and believe me, it wasn’t enough. I wanted more time to shop and eat. So many things to see and buy and so many places to eat and especially if you are on the hunt for the best fried chicken and best Korean BBQ!


Kyochon Chicken specialises in Korean Fried Chicken and opened its first store in 1991 and have expanded and opened 150 stores within 8 years around Korea. They even opened branches in USA and China. The best thing about Kyochon Chicken is that they do delivery! As we were waiting, we did contemplate of having it delivered, but thought it would be better if we ate in.


Kyochon Chicken has many branches in Seoul, we ate at the Dongdaemun branch after an afternoon of shopping. The fried chicken comes in five different flavours – original (soy), red (spicy), honey, salsa and fried series and comes in four various – whole chicken, mixed wings, and drumsticks.

We ordered 2 servings of the whole fried chicken and oh my – it was seriously tasty. Crispy skin, tender meat, it could potentially be one of the best fried chicken I’ve had in Korea!


We also ordered the spicy whole fried chicken. It was spicy but not as spicy as the one at Two Two fried chicken.

And as if that wasn’t enough fried food, we had a serving of chips also – chips were ok, fried chicken is definitely their specialty.


The branch in Dongdaemun was small, we had to wait a good 25 mins and it was definitely worth the wait! Poor Dragon and C though, they were starving by the time we sat which was about 7pm (yes, Dragon eats early but she definitely enjoyed the fried chicken!) Compared with Two Two Fried Chicken, think I like Kyochon Chicken slightly better!
