Location: COEX Mall
How To Get There: Take the Samsung (삼성) Station exit straight into COEX Mall. KFC will be on your left.
So after a year hiatus, I’m back in Korea & will be blogging about food again… So my first meal back in Korea? Something cultural? No. Something authentic? No. That’s right, my first meal back was at KFC aka Kentucky Fried Chicken. I went to the COEX location with my friend Hannah for lunch. I got the smart choice set – 2 pieces of crispy fried chicken & a cola. Hannah got the zinger burger & a cola. I’m not sure how my meal got its name “SMART CHOICE.” But it was quite delicious. Basically, the chicken here is already extra crispy. In America, you get regular fried chicken. “Extra crispy” is an OPTION. But in Korea, it’s already assumed that you want crispy chicken. Overall, our meal was delicious and cheap. We sat around for awhile reflecting on the awesomeness of fried chicken before heading into the jungle that is COEX.
