Sinchon: General Braised Chicken 장군찜닭

[Visited in 2023, the store has been replace by another 찜닭 store, I have shared in my current 2023 trip. Look forward =)]

[Travel in March/April 2017]

I have been staying at Sinchon for a good 10 times so far, and my aim is to explore all the good foods and cafes around this area haha. There’s always a saying that, if you stay near this area, its always very rare and times you wanted to spend time here…. That happened to me twice in Myeongdong haha. But Sinchon (& Edae) is such a lovely place that fill with many lovely cafes and eateries. Since I stayed Sinchon (most of the time), my first day and last day of my trip definitely spent in Sinchon… I wanted to try something different every trip so my explore spirit will allows me to find more!

Since I’m bringing 2 new friends to Korea this time, I must bring them to eat 찜닭! I always like the one at Gangnam but, doesn’t want to make a trip all the way there this trip. And, I found one in Sinchon and I guessed its my favourite 찜닭 since the first bite haha. My friend whom tried a few 찜닭 the last 2 trips and think this is the best too.

So you know where you can eat 찜닭 after shopping at Sinchon/Edae hehe….

#Food is served! We ordered a 4 pax meal, cos they don’t allowed us to order 3 since there’s 4 of us haha.
The rice is topped with a piece of butter, which eventually we stirred with the rice. It’s so fragrant~~~
