Dasarang Chicken: KFC stands for Korean Fried Chicken!

After watching the Korean drama, "My Love from Another Star" I've been wanting to try Korean fried chicken since the main character always mentions it. The search for the chicken brought me to Dasarang Chicken in Coquitlam which is only a short drive from Lougheed Mall.

There weren't any customers when we went to eat on a weekday for lunch and during our time there only another two people came in. It's a fried chicken and beer kind of place so there should be more people in the evening.

We ordered the yangnyeom chicken which is fried chicken mixed in a spicy but sweet sauce and sprinkled with sesame. The chicken was boneless so it was easy to eat and each piece was thoroughly coated with the sauce. The photo below is one portion and costs a little under $20. The two of us couldn't finish it and we didn't even order anything else! The fried chicken is very filling.

Overall this is the kind of fried chicken I would crave, sorry Kentucky Fried Chicken. Though the portions are definitely big and you should go with more people if you want to try other things on the menu.
