4 Fingers Fried Chicken Korean-Style: Mouthwatering Crispy Chicken Goodness
Hungry for some Korean-style fried chicken? 4 Fingers is your best bet for a mouthwatering dining experience.
4 Fingers prides itself on being the world’s first chicken outlet full of attitude. Its graffiti-marked walls complement directional signs that seem almost reminiscent of a New York subway. A little confusing as the establishment serves Korean-style food, but no worries because their irresistibly crunchy fried chicken makes up for the incoherence.
Fried Chicken Korean-Style – Mouthwatering Goodness at 4 Fingers
The establishment was founded by four foodie friends all sharing a passion to uncover some of the best-kept secrets of the culinary world, one of them being succulent Korean-style fried chicken – done the right way.
Every restaurant has a pièce de résistance, a can-do-no-wrong dish that leaves a favorable and lasting impression on whoever tastes it. This is that dish.
4 Fingers Crispy Chicken (P229) features 6 pieces of wings and drumettes, double-fried, hand-painted with a soy garlic glaze, and served with a side of fries. You can choose to have it served spicy, as well. However, if you’re a purist like me, I’d highly recommend staying true to the soy garlic craze.
A resounding crunch welcomes you upon first bite of the chicken followed by another and another as you continue chewing in your mouth. It’s the kind of crisp that demands to be heard, as if enticing others next to you to ask for a piece of chicken, as well – that is, of course, if they haven’t already ordered the same thing. The meat of the chicken is moist and tender, too – a far cry from 4 Fingers biggest competitor – with the soy garlic flavor permeating even beyond the chicken skin. Without a doubt, this dish alone is reason enough to give 4 Fingers a try.
If you’re a fan of tempura but can’t stand the dense and at times greasy batter, you’re in luck! 4 Fingers serves a medley of calamari and shrimp coated in a light batter that almost melts at the tongue.
In my opinion, it’s got the right amount of sauce. However, if your taste buds find it a tad bit overpowering, go ahead and squeeze a bit of calamansi over the seafood. The acidity will help mellow out the strong notes of the soy garlic.
Slapped in-between a bun are a moist chicken fillet, lettuce, mushrooms, and special sauce – which I believe includes curry as an ingredient. The burger’s a great option for the constant on-the-go diner looking to grab a bite before a meeting.
Succulent and crispy chicken is hard to come by nowadays, so if you’re looking to satisfy your Korean-style fried chicken cravings, look no further and head on over to 4 Fingers.
