Andong Chicken or Andong Jjimdak (안동찜닭). This dish originated from Andong and, it was made with stewed chicken, vegetables, potatos, noodles in a korean soy sauce. (Finally not so fried food!)
I heard a lot of this dish before, because a friend of mine, Stacey actually cooked it before for Cin Germx and maybe Joanne? The feedback and comments were pretty good, and why Stacey you stopped cooking it already? LOL!
After my first trip to Korea, Andong Chicken has been on my top3 food list! I’m sure I will give it a visit again no matter what (you know the journey wasn’t very near, its at gangnam). I first know of Yeolbong via Se7en’s twitter. Yes! This restuarant is opened by him, and trust me, this is not just another celebrity-opened restaurant. It is REALLY GOOD Quality!
I should say Yeolbong has the best Andong Chicken so far (my taste bud)! My last visit, I tried 3 different restaurants include Yeolbong, the rest was pretty so-so that I almost dropped Andong Chicken out of my top3 food list in Korea. Till…… I tried Yeolbong. It’s really good. I love how the stewed chicken taste, and their korean soy sauce simply magic!
This Febulous trip, I went Yeolbang for twice even though its located at Gangnam. Good food are always worth the travel. I think mainly because the Subway is not too complicated and it is in fact, easy access from lots of area. I mean, I doesn’t need to take a bus then a train then changed a few times just to reach. How nice!
The very first time was to have Yeolbang with our extended Pie Family.
and remember my Everland Trip I blogged previously? We headed for Yeolbang again! :)
This time with the Everland group! LOL! I think all of us pretty love Yeolbang! :/
/// this time we are slightly disappointed because the waitress probably tot we wanted NO spicy!
Hello with Jimei and Miyo AND ME, how possible right? We wanted a 1 spice. But sadly…
Nevertheless, it taste good, but will taste fab if it is 1 spice or in fact, 2 spice.Oh, so, I tried all before now :D
/// Heard this is kind of popular, ordered for trying. but as a non seaweed lover, i didn’t try.
Look like it taste good with a dip in andong chicken sauce :D
/// hello rila! so cute so many rila :)
And, I didn’t actually blog anything from the last trip (guilty!) So, since we are on this topic. Let me share more food from the previous trip. Okay i know it look as if the same but yeah yeah yeah…. i just want to post the photos. BECAUSE IT TASTE GOOD! How I wish Yeolbang will be coming in Singapore. Imagine we get to eat this so much often? Not sure the standard, but I really like the one in Gangnam! :D I think because of my previous trip, I didn’t take much of the interior as well. 2011 trip have so much more interior photos. Check out now :D
/// saw quite lots of big bang stuff around. I wasn’t a VIP, but i pretty much love this songs.. especially the old old one. like haru haru :D
the side dish…
SAY HI TO TOP! :D
ended with a signature from se7en.
ARE we lucky? We only went there once, overslept and watch inkigayo in the end.
Laze a few hours, and when we reached… we caught him! :/
The funniest part was.. i was walking pass him and he did a very friendly smile too.
“ah, maybe saw before, smile back….. and oh so good looking”
Didn’t even came across that HE IS Se7en! :/
He spoke english to us, asked our name and sign.
OKAY HE IS SO GOOOOOOOD LOOKING!
*dance well, sing well, good looking, pretty gf!* haha
Aside the one in Gangnam, I happened to pass by the one in Hyehwa and Hongdae as well :) The one in Hongdae is sooooo cute! Pass by the Hongdae one when we were heading for HAHA’s makchang…. And pass by Hyehwa’s when we were there for live octopus! HAHA :/ It’s all about food really. Food, Shopping, Drink = Seoul! :/
