Chir Chir is Korea’s largest fried chicken restaurant chain. Now you can avoid the expense and time of flying to Korea to get it. Chir Chir is located in Burwood and they are doing a range of quality fried chicken and a number of traditional Korean favourites.
The restaurant occupies a large modern space, it is a licensed venue with a range of Korean alcoholic beverages including beer and shoju. They also have a range of refreshing non alcoholic drinks including the lychee mint and lime and strawberry.
We tried some tasty starters including the Fried squid tentacles crumbed with special frying flour and the fried Korean rice cakes. The noodle bibimbap with fried beef a healthier traditional option.
But it is all about the fried chicken and it is pretty hard to go past the Chir Chir tenders triple combo. A trifecta of original, spicy and garlic. The chicken is tender and the batter is crisp, the garlic and spicy varieties add a nice subtle flavour and are not too over the top or spicy and no bones, so less hassle. If you are a wing fan, they also have a variety of wings on the menu.
You can also go for pimped out versions of the Korean fried chicken with spaghetti, chips or pizza. Our favourite and most popular was the Venus cheesy chicken. A mountain of Fried chicken strips served on a hot plate with tomato and different types of cheese which melt over the chicken and in the pan. They also pour over a cheese sauce which is a bit of a spectacle.
Chir Chir are good for some tasty Korean fried chicken with prompt service. They are a little pricy, but the portions are generous and most of the fried chicken dishes will serve two people.
