Suwon Chicken Alley

Fried chicken is one of Korea's most popular snack to eat while drinking beer. In fact, when it appeared on a Korean drama "My Love from Another Star" - it created a "Chi-Maek" (chicken and beer) sales phenomenon in China!

The scene that started the Chi-maek craze

Chicken places are scattered in almost every corner in South Korea - most especially at the backdoor gates of universities. For those who have been to Korea for a long period. there is no doubt that he/she have experienced drinking out and munching crispy fried chicken while chattering with their seniors and/or colleagues. For some reasons, one is able to eat a whole box of fried chicken here in Korea without noticing it. Yes, it is quite addictive.

You can get a box of chicken just by a phone call for a "taekbae" (delivery) but, here in Suwon, there is a very special alley where chicken restaurants with 40 years’ tradition are congregated in. Whole chicken fried in an iron pot in a traditional way is really crispy and crunchy, with generous servings sold at a very low price. Each restaurant serves its unique sauce, attracting many customers at nighttime and on weekends. Some stores sell only take-out chicken. Suwon citizens call this popular area “
Chicken Intersection.”
