Gimme Five – Sydney CBD

The Top Line: Go there for good value and tasty Korean fried chicken (and Korean fried chicken only).

The review: Korean fried chicken is different from normal American (i.e. western) fried chicken. It is fried and then glazed with some sort of sauce, usually sticky soy sauce – and this puts it another level above chicken that you get from fast food chains like KFC. However, these do usually come at premium prices (I’m looking at you, Red Pepper and Arisun!)

All of the above came to a total of $62. We were stuffed.

Here, the small size (13 pieces) is just $9, medium size (20 pieces) is $16 and the large size is $25. Bargain! We got the deep fried chicken with spicy sauce and the deep fried chicken with soy sauce. They tasted pretty similar, except the spicy sauce one tasted a bit more like sweet chilli sauce. It was nice though, and I couldn’t imagine how big the serving sizes for a large would be!

Cold soup with noodle ($8)

We also got the cold noodles and spicy rice cakes…meh. Nothing special and honestly, I don’t really like cold noodles and spicy rice cakes anyway. We also ordered the deep fried cheese sticks (for $6!!!) and there were legit TWO sticks only. Yeah would not recommend you ordering that. The bulgogi rice was nice though (soy sauce with stir fried beef) but also nothing special.

So the bottom line is, the same as the top line, and that is … only go there for the fried chicken. 🙂
